How Do Your Identify The Best Cat Boarding Facility For Your Pet?

Leaving your pet behind when you are travelling can be heart-wrenching, yet unavoidable. And if you are a responsible pet owner, it is likely that you will want to ensure your cat is getting the best care possible while you are away. One of the places that will give you peace of mind about the welfare of your pet is a cat boarding facility. Nonetheless, with numerous pet boarding facilities opening up every other day, how can you tell what will be the best accommodation for your pet? Well, the first thing you should do is not select the first one that you come across. Instead, look out for a pet boarding that ticks all the boxes when it comes to the following considerations.

The atmosphere at the cat boarding

Nobody knows what your pet likes better than you do. Thus, with that in mind, you should be scouring for a pet boarding that will be similar to the environment your pet is acclimatised to at home. So what does this mean? For instance, if your pet is timid, you should opt for a small pet boarding facility that does not have numerous cats in their care at one go.

The sanitation at the cat barding

Cleanliness is crucial when picking out a cat boarding for a number of reasons. Firstly, if the facility is not sanitary, your cat could be exposed to a host of bacteria and infectious diseases, which will mean having to see a vet at some point after your cat is back home. Secondly, an unclean environment is a breeding ground for vermin, parasites and other critters that could severely compromise the health of your pet. Be sure to look around for signs of faecal matter, urine stains and so on to get a better idea of the sanitation standards of the facility.

The exercise policies at the cat boarding

If you are leaving your pet for a day or two, you may not be concerned about exercise. But if you will be away for a long stretch of time, you want to ensure that your cat is getting some physical activity on a daily basis. Check to see is the cat boarding has adequate climbing poles for the cats to stretch their muscles. Also look out for scratching posts for your pet too. The more playtime your pet gets to have, the less likely that it will be stressed during its time at the boarding facility. 

About Me

When I was a little girl, all I wanted was a horse. It was not a viable option for my childhood, but I was in a position to say yes when my own child began begging for a pony. I know nothing about horse care, so after spending a lot of time researching this subject, I decided to start this blog for other parents who are thrown into the new world of horse ownership. From feeding to vet care, saddlery to choosing the right helmet, this blog covers all topics relating to owning and riding a horse. These tips will help you make informed decisions about the new family pet in your child's life.
