WE do things differently


We took great care when designing our cat kennels to give cats the very best experience possible. We appreciate the special environmental requirements cats have to maintain normal behaviours, and designed our cat kennels to meet these needs:


The need for privacy

Many house cats become stressed when they see unfamiliar cats. We eliminate this stress by using solid walls in the construction of our kennels, and arranging the perches and vents in a way that prevents one cat from spying down on another cat.


The need for space

Our kennels are huge. A single kennel is four feet wide, eight feet long, and eight feet tall. We feel two cats kenneled together deserve twice the space, so our two-cat kennels are double the size of a single. Although some cats prefer to sleep most of the time, they still need the ability to move about normally, if they choose to do so.


The need for an appropriately sized potty space
No one likes an airplane toilet. It's a testament to their love for us that cats continue to use the micro-potties we supply them with. We have found that our own cats do so much better with an oversized potty space and so provide our guests with the same accommodations. Each single kennel is equipped with a 30 gallon, 33"L x 20"W x 17"H litter box. For multiple cats from the same family staying five or more nights, we provide one litter box for each cat, to help reduce stress and the potential for litter box issues. We use low-dust, unscented pine shavings or non-clumping litter.


The need for environmental enrichment

Each kennel has its own 2x3 foot window, which allows our guests to watch birds or bathe in the sunshine. For guests staying five nights or longer, we provide a cardboard scratch box that the guest gets to take home when they check out.


The need for cleanliness

Our cat kennels are constructed of easy-to-clean materials, like melamine walls and a floor that has been completely sealed with 5+ coats of varathane. These surfaces allow us to easily sanitize each kennel between guests, which reduces the chances of illnesses spreading. Strong cleaners can repel or stress cats, so we use these in moderation.

We believe it takes more than just a love of cats to be good at caring for cats. Love isn't the same as knowledge or anywhere as useful. Ashley has attended seminars by internationally acclaimed cat experts, to better understand why cats do what they do, and how we can make their lives more comfortable. Our kennel set up and handling philosophies are based on the knowledge she has gained from these seminars.
