What Are The Benefits Of Cat-Exclusive Boarding?

When we say we offer boarding exclusively for cats, it means that there are no dogs or any species other than cats here. Cats will not experience stress at the sound of barking dogs, or the smell of a predator on the other side of the wall.

The boarding areas are quiet and clean. Cats do not have direct line of sight to unfamiliar cats. We serve them fresh food and water and attend to their litter boxes regularly. Hotel guests receive attention and petting to their comfort level. The use of synthetic cat pheromones and music scientifically designed to calm cats help to round out a soothing experience for all of your cat’s five senses.

You can rest assured that your cats are comfortable, relaxed, and safe while you’re traveling.

What Do I Need to Bring?

We ask all pet parents to bring their cat’s regular food in quantities sufficient for the length of their stay. This helps minimize GI upset and subsequent stress.

You may also wish to bring your cat’s own bedding or toys or other comforts from home, but please realize that these items can get lost if they need to be laundered or otherwise cleaned. For safety reasons, we cannot accommodate items that plug in (fountains, heated beds, etc).

Rest assured, we have many blankets, towels, hiding boxes, toys, and other enrichment items to make your cat’s stay a comfortable one. We also have bowls, litter boxes, and litter, so there is no need to pack these items.

Boarding pick up and drop off are at 9 am or 4 pm Tuesday through Friday and 9 am only Saturday through Monday. Please call if your cat is on twice-daily medication.

Four Comfy Levels Of Boarding Available

Aurora Cat Hospital & Hotel offers multiple levels of boarding, with varying benefits. Here’s a look at your options for boarding at our facility.

For families with cats who prefer to be housed together, multiple condos can be opened to each other or cats can share one. Please ask one of our staff for details and options.

(Please note: prices below are per night per cat. Housemates may board in the same condo at reduced rates. Additional charges for medication, extra food, etc. may apply.)

Tier 1

Cost per night: $25.50

Tier 1 boarding is classic cat boarding in a comfortable, cat-friendly environment. Each two-room suite is outfitted with comfy blankets, clean litter boxes, and shelves to climb.

Tier 2

Cost per night: $28.50

Tier 2 Boarding has all the Tier 1 features plus an additional room for a spacious three-room stay. The layout is either "townhouse" with vertical space for young climbers or "ranch style," which is horizontal and perfect for kitties with limited mobility. (Picture below shows a layout of three townhouse-style condos.)

Tier 3

Cost per night: $35.00

Tier 3 Boarding is comprised of a set of uniquely-designed rooms with lots of vertical space in the front of the hospital. This is a great choice for outgoing cats that love to watch people. (Picture below shows one Tier 3 condo)

Tier 4

Cost per night: $42.00

Our suites offer additional space with high ceilings and even more natural light. You can choose the Fish Bowl or the Forest Suite. Both have carpeted cat condos and many shelves for exploration.
