At Whiskers we believe in going the extra mile to ensure that your feline companions receive the very best care available. That starts with our Cage-free accommodations. We've heard all of the rationalizations about why it's okay to board cats in cages or cat condos, which are really just multi-level cages, and we simply don't agree!
Some say: Cats like small spaces. Cats just want to go off to a corner and be left alone. Nonsense!
Cats need room to be happy and cats don't like change - it's stressful. Cages, even cat condos, don't give cats enough room, and they surely represent a stressful change from what they're used to at home.
Some cats like small spaces some time, but he truth is cats like room. It's the cat who's afraid that seeks a small, dark hiding place. Cats shouldn't be afraid while being boarded, but if kept in a cage stacked along side other cats who are strangers to them, they often are. In this situation, they will likely find the smallest, darkest hiding place - but that doesn't mean that they like it!
Cats are curious and need an environment that is stimulating. They need room to play, vertical space to jump, interesting sights, and a choice of movement to stem boredom. And, if your cat is anything like ours, they need attention. We're not talking about a chin scratch from a finger poked through a cage. We mean time spent in their suite, letting the cat jump on up for petting, a game of chase, a treat, or a nice brush out.
So, we offer you a one of a kind boarding experience for felines - one that meets their needs in every way.
An experience that gives you peace of mind. Finally.
