Why should I board my cat while I'm away?

It is important to remember that cats do not usually travel well. They usually do not enjoy it, nor do they adapt well to travel. Many people who try to take kitty along with them on their vacation end up spending most of their time searching for their escaped pet. Leaving your cat with friends is just as unsatisfactory to your cat. Cats must go through an adjustment period in a new environment and this means they will not look upon your friend's house as "home" for quite awhile. Therefore, your cat may try to escape from the strange house at every opportunity or hide as a fear reaction. Most cat owners realize that it is not fair to impose this kind of responsibility on their friends, nor is it a safe arrangement for their pets.

Obviously, the most satisfactory way of arranging for such care is to entrust your cat to a qualified cat boarding facility, such as Catopia, where the security arrangements are adequate to insure that your cat will not escape, and where the personnel are trained in observing and handling the problems which may arise in your absence. And remember, that if you still don't want to board your kitty, Catopia offers our same care at your own home, with Catopia's Kitty Sitting Service.
