Frequently Asked Questions:
Does Club Purr mix
kitties from different families together?
No, Absolutely never.
Do you ever let the
kitties out in the Common Areas?
Yes and No. We do our very best to accommodate the needs
for every kitty with respect to the owners wishes. On occasion we find that some
kitties prefer to stay in their chosen room and do not pressure them into
something they are not comfortable with. If your kitty is one who enjoys the
common area we try to split the times so all kitties get a favorable amount of
What length of time do
you board a kitty?
Well, it varies with each individual kitty as far as age
and temperament, but about 4 months is the maximum we would recommend.
Does Club Purr provide
We highly recommend you bring your kitties food
especially since kitties are sometimes slow to eat normally in a new situation,
so the last thing we want to do is change the diet they are accustomed to. Some
owners even bring human treats such as shrimp, deli turkey, ham, etc. and that
is fine to. Don’t worry if you forget the food we usually have dry kitty food on
hand, but there will be a $3 charge per day.
Can I bring my kitties
Sure, Most of the rooms we offer are spacious enough for
large items from home, and we feel that the more possessions your kitty has the
easier it is for them to feel right at home. Please, no food dishes though. The
reason is we closely monitor your kitties intake (and output), and with
self-feeders that is a little difficult.
My kitty loves a fresh
litter box. How often do you scoop?
Always at least twice a day, More as needed. Older
kitties and diabetic kitties need it more often.
Can I bring my kitty’s
Sure, as long as you use the clumping litter or litter
pearls and not the odor absorbing non clumping clay. Don't forget a little extra
to freshen up your kitties box. We also offer a one-time per visit discount of
$5 on stays of 5 days or longer.
What shots do you
We have discussed the issue of feline vaccinations with
numerous veterinarians, and we have found that there is a great deal of
controversy and not much consensus. We have decided to take a conservative
position on the subject. We therefore would like written proof or a call from
your vet concerning the following: Rabies (1 or 3 yr), FVRCP vaccine every two
years minimum, and that your cat have a FeLV (Leukemia) shot every year. We will
waive this for an inside only cat whose family and vet do not wish him or her to
have this vaccine. Generally, we will follow the wishes of your vet concerning
the shots your cat needs. Some vets are now of the opinion that their older cat
clients, having built up sufficient antibodies from 10 or more years of shots,
no longer need annual vaccinations at all. Some others questions the need for
Rabies vaccinations for indoor only cats, despite state law. For boarding
purposes we feel that the FVRCP vaccination—also called the booster, distemper,
3in1, or combo shot is the most useful since it gives protections against cold
viruses and distemper. We will defer to your vet’s instructions for your cat or
