Although dogs make up the largest portion of pets that are housed in Silicon Valley pet boarding, there’s also plenty of space and love available for our feline friends.
Many cat owners believe that cats are independent and don’t require the supervision and interaction of humans. For this reason, many have never considered taking advantage of a pet boarding facility for weekend absences.
But a wandering cat is a cat at risk. Animals that are allowed to run loose face many perils: speeding traffic, animal control officers, dogs that enjoy chasing smaller animals, open sewer drains, toxic chemicals, and a number of other things that place that animal in danger.
Often, cat owners point to the fact that their cat wanders off into the neighborhood as evidence of the animal’s independent nature; however, the notion that cats don’t need daily attention is a fallacy. What these jaunts about may actually signal is the animal’s effort to get the interaction he needs elsewhere. Cats may appear aloof and indifferent, but just like dogs, they can become very lonely and need to know they’re loved.
If your cat disappears for days at a stretch, or spends weekends alone while you’re out of town, consider putting up your cat in a pet boarding facility, such as West Valley Pet Lodge. Here, cats receive the affection they crave and a secure environment where no harm can come to them.
Our cattery is located in a separate building, apart from our dog kennel. Just like dogs, cats thrive on routine. The staff at West Valley’s Silicon Valley pet boarding facility provides cats with their favorite foods on the schedule they are used to. If there are any medications that need to be administered, our staff is trained to do so. Our facilities are clean, well lighted and ventilated with a fresh air turbine and built-in wall fan.
Temperature is controlled with air conditioning and/or heat. Cats are provided a large, comfortable den with bedding, and a view of a faux aquarium with moving fish. There is also a kitty-gym for their playtime activity and extra attention.
