Top Cat Boarding related questions

No. Cat boarding specialists already have these, along with their skill and experience in boarding cats. However, you may want to provide your cat’s carrier, toys and their favourite blanket if your cat will be more comfortable with these items, and to make your cat boarding expert’s job easier. Note that you may be asked to supply proof that your cat is vaccinated and parasite-free, along with any medication, dosage instructions and the number of your vet just in case. 

Hiring a cat boarding expert should take a few minutes, depending on how many Taskers respond to your post. As they are local experts near you, getting to your home and collecting your kitty depends on your location. Fetching and boarding your cat shouldn’t take more than an hour if your cat boarding specialist is near your address. It also applies to how soon you get your beloved feline brought back to you. 

Yes! If you run a cat boarding service business and are short on staff, you can hire a Tasker to assist. You can hire Taskers for almost any service you can think of and offer, including uncommon ones like cat sitters, house sitters, pet door installation and house cleaning. It’s only a matter of making a post on our platform with all the details about your job to attract the right Taskers.

Some cat owners may notice their cats have become more aggressive or may avoid interacting with you. This is normal, as this can be a sign of separation anxiety - especially if you already have a strong bond with your feline. Your cat needs time to readjust to your absence and re-appearance. Once you’re both back at home, set aside some time to play and cuddle with your cat, and give them treats - but don’t overdo it. 

There are a few tips on cat boarding, and one is to ask if the staff is there 24/7. Some boarding facilities don’t have a staff member to monitor their feline tenants overnight. Don’t choose a facility like this if your cat has medical needs or is elderly. Another helpful tip is to provide the cat boarding facility with the number of your vet and a nearby friend or relative to call in case of emergency. 

That depends on your cat’s and your peace of mind - and your budget. Mixed-animal boarding facilities are far noisier as there will also be dogs. Your cat is more likely to become stressed in a place like this, but they should be fine if your cat is accustomed to their presence. Should you prefer less stress for you both, you may want to place them in a cat-only boarding area or facility - although the rates may be higher. 

What do cat boarding services include?

Cat boarding services include all the necessary activities to ensure that your cat is cared for while you’re away from home. This can include: fetching your cat and taking them to the cat boarding house or cat hotel, making sure that they are housed properly and getting them settled in, making daily visits to see to it they’re fed, and changing their litter box. 

Some cat boarding specialists may spend a few minutes each day or every other day to keep your kitty company and play with them. After their stay is done and you’ve returned home, your cat boarding specialist can transport your cat to you

Fetching your cat

If you are unable to take your favourite feline to a cat boarding facility, some cat boarding specialists can go to your address to fetch them. Some specialists can make this part of their boarding service, but some may charge extra if you request for your cat to be fetched.  

Your cat boarding specialist can use a cat carrier of their own, or you can supply the carrier if you feel your cat would feel more secure and comfortable. Your cat boarding specialist makes sure that your kitty is secure, comfortable and safe during transit. 

Getting your cat settled in

Once your cat has arrived at the animal boarding facility, they can ensure that the cat is placed in a clean and comfortable cat boarding cage. Should you want your cat to have a room or area of its own, be sure to specify this to your cat boarding specialist, if you think your cat would be more comfortable (this might cost an extra fee).

Caring for your cat

During your cat’s stay, the cat boarding expert makes sure that your cat has enough water and food and that their space is clean, warm and dry. They can change your cat’s litter box daily or at least every couple of days for longer stays until their stay is over. Your cat boarding specialist can also give your cat any medication they need, following the dosage instructions. 

They can check in on your cat daily. Some specialists can spend a few minutes to keep them company and play with them to ensure your cat’s behaviour doesn’t change after boarding.

Sending updates

As your cat boarding specialist takes your feline friend to the boarding facility, they can send you updates via messaging apps. The daily updates can consist of messages with accompanying photos and short videos in real-time to reassure you that your cat has arrived safely and is cared for during their stay. 

Returning your cat

On the same day you return, your cat boarding specialist can fetch the cat from the cat boarding house and bring them safely back to you. Taskers will return any toys, medication, cat carrier or equipment you supplied along with your precious kitty.
