Tips on Cat Care While You’re Away – Boarding


Last time we explored tips for leaving your cat at home while you're away. Now let's focus on looking at the option of boarding your kitty during your absence.

If you'll be boarding your cat somewhere you aren't familiar with, visit the facility beforehand. Ask for a tour to see exactly where your cat will be boarded. Be sure to notice if the facility smells bad or if it's kept clean.

Be sure to book your boarding arrangements in advance. Many kennels/animal hospitals have limited space. It's especially important to book early during holidays.

Most kennels and animal hospitals that board pets do require that animals be up-to-date with their vaccinations. If you plan to board with a veterinarian and your cat needs vaccinations, then you might be able to arrange to have the vaccinations done while boarding.

If your kitty has special dietary needs, be sure to take his/her food. Really it's probably best to take your cat's food regardless because a change in diet oftentimes can cause diarrhea.

It's equally important to bring along any medications (and instructions for administering them) your cat is taking.

Leave contact phone numbers with the staff in case of an emergency.

If your cat has a special toy or blanket or anything you want to take along just check with the boarding facility to make sure it's okay. Be sure to ask them to document anything you bring with your cat; this includes food, toys, a blanket or towel, pet carrier and the like. Also, make sure you label these items with your cat's name.
