What is cat boarding?

You’ve booked some holiday, have to leave on a business trip and you’re getting concerned about having to leave your cat behind. Have you ever considered using Holidog’s cat boarding service?

Keep your cat happy while you’re away

Cat boarding can take place in your own home or at the pet sitter’s home. It’s perfect for cats that don’t enjoy being in a cattery or those with special needs that require lots of attention. By choosing cat boarding, whether in your own or at the host’s place, you’re making sure that your cat will be perfectly safe and happy while you’re away.

In your own home

Cat boarding at your own home is the perfect solution for cats. After all, they’re territorial and don’t particularly like changing their habits. With Holidog’s cat boarding service, your absence will be as stress-free as possible for your cat.

With a host family

Cat boarding in a host family is a very good in-between if your cat isn’t a fan of catteries. It works quite simply: your cat is taken care of by a host family while you’re away. Our website allows you to find in a few clicks the perfect host for your cat, whatever its age and needs.

What about cat boarding facilities?

There are more and more cat boarding facilities all across the country. Seen from afar, they look perfect but keep in mind that not all cats will enjoy staying there. The reason is simple: cats are territorial and don’t like changes. If your cat doesn’t like the company (or even the sight!) of other cats, if it’s shy or has special needs, then forget about catteries: it’ll be happier cat boarding at home or with a host family!
