Every cat owner who has gone on vacation has been faced with the dilemma of what to do with their feline friend while away from home. Sometimes you luck out and are able to find a family member, friend or professional cat sitter who is able to take care of your feline.
Other times neighbors and friends may be unavailable and you will need to explore another option like cat boarding. There are many cat boarding centres like tyvy that offer cat boarding.

Putting your cat's care in the hands of a stranger can be an uncomfortable thought. But it doesn't have to be. Finding a kennel that will provide the care and attention your feline deserves will require a little homework as well as personal visits to each facility under consideration.
One of your best sources to find a great kennel is referrals from friends or your veterinarian. Ask to see the cat boarding area. It should be in a separate area from the dog kennels. It should be well-lit and each cat should have its own enclosed area.
Find out if there is any type of specific air ventilation system. At some boarding facilities, there are vents within each area that circulate air every 15 minutes. This type of air circulation reduces odor and germs from the cat boarding area.
Aside from the essential physical requirements of the facility speak to the staff regarding their training and experience. Check to see if the boarding facility tracks how each cat is eating and eliminating. This is critically important as that is a baseline measure of the cat's health.
