A Typical Day for Cats

Vacation Rooms

Cat vacationers enjoy our totally enclosed patios where they can soak up the fresh air, sunshine and bird watching! Our 6'x 8' rooms are for one or multiple cats only from the same family. We provide all the comforts of home with our daily purr sessions, toys, kitty tree, TV, and air conditioning/heating.
As close to home, away from home, your cat will ever experience!

The added bonus to these rooms are your dog and cat
can share a room together!!!

We are one of the only luxury Pet Resort's around that can accommodate both dog and cat in a room together! We provide a secured area for the litter box and cat food to sit, so your dog can't get to them. Both dog and cat can enjoy a fantastic vacation together in one of our suites below.

we are here to help you pack!

Your Cat's Luggage

It's important to make your cat as comfortable as they can be while away from home. We find these items help out a great deal with that transition.
Be sure to pack enough food for the total length of stay. Please pack food in a sealed, plastic container (if available) with your cat's name on it. Add directions if needed. Be sure to include treats for night time snack!
A maximum of 2 toys are allowed. Please do not pack anything sentimental because it may not make it back home.
A small throw carpet, blanket, and/or washable cat bed all work. No stuffed beds or pet furniture. All items must be machine washable.
Please clearly label all medications. We administer everything from pills to injections!
Please include a descriptive list of all items you have packed for your cat (colors of blankets, names of medications, etc.) so you will get all of your cat's items back at the end of the stay.
Any updated vaccination/shot records we will need to record in our system.
Bring in a list of any personal changes, such as your home address, email, emergency contacts, etc. so we can update them in our system.

Our kitchen at the Pet Resort is fully stocked with a refrigerator and microwave, so we can meet almost any meal needs. Due to limited kitchen space, if you can, please do not bring large plastic containers or full, big bags of food. We suggest you put your name on every item you possibly can to help us out when packing up to go home. We provide all dishes for food and water, as well, so please leave those at home.  A litter box and cat litter is provided by the Pet Resort.

Just in case you needed to know


If your pet's home medication administration times are different from the Pet Resort's daily operating hours, please give yourself and your pet a minimum of 2 weeks to adjust to a new schedule at home before the vacation stay at the Pet Resort. We suggest easing into the transition, moving the times slightly every day. For example, if you normally give your pet his medication at 10:00 pm, please gradually move his medication time towards 8:00 pm for the Pet Resort stay. This will make for an easier transition for your pet.

Bring your pet out for a tour to feel the Pet Resort out. We understand leaving your pet anywhere that is not home is stressful- both to you and the cat! It helps to bring your cat out to our facility and get used to the grounds before the vacation stay. We also recommend boarding your cat with us for a short stay to ease into the Pet Resort atmosphere. A lot of customers find this to be extremely helpful.

Our staff is fully trained in administering medications to pets. From pills to shots, we have been trained and fully understand the importance of medications given to animals.

There will be no charge for the departure day for dogs/cats
checking out between 9-11:00 am.

After 6 months of age, cats MUST be spayed/neutered to stay at the Pet Resort.

Dog and cat from the same family can room together. We provide special accommodations to protect the cat's food/litter box.
