What to Bring

What to Bring

  • Food
  • Vaccination Records – Minimum of Rabies & FVRCP
  • Appropriate Sized Litter-box and SCOOP-ABLE Litter – Preferably unscented
  • Medications
  • Optional: Toys

 

Food

Because many animals don’t adapt well to an abrupt change in food, owners need to bring their pets’ regular dietary supplies. If your pet also requires canned food, we will serve those on his usual feeding schedule. We gladly cater to special diets and health concerns. Please bring foods in clearly marked containers or a package with your pet’s name and dispensing instructions.

All pets have access to fresh clean water at all times. For our guests, we use only filtered water to satisfy even the most discerning pets.

Vaccination Records

You must provide written proof from a licensed veterinarian of your pets’ vaccinations. We only accept veterinary-administered vaccinations. If your pets’ vaccinations are not current, you must have them vaccinated seven (7) days prior to arrival to allow your pet to be fully protected.

To assure the health of all of our special guests, we require proof that the following minimum vaccinations are current to secure your reservation:

  • Rabies & Distemper

All pets must be age-appropriate vaccinated if not old enough for a Rabies treatment. All pets must be neutered / spayed if over the age of 5 months.

Litter & Litter Box

Many cats object to using an unfamiliar litter box and litter. Owners should bring an appropriate-sized litter box for your pet’s body size, along with enough scoop-able unscented clumping litter for the duration of your pet’s stay. Our pet condos are able to accommodate all sizes of boxes, including ones with hoods.

Medications

If your pet requires medications we are able to accommodate his or her special needs. All medications should be clearly labelled with name and dosage, along with dispensing schedule. Refrigeration for medications is available.

Optional

If you would like to bring your pets’ favorite toys, you are welcome to. If not, Cat Cottage provides a variety of toys for your pets’ stay at no extra cost. We also provide all bedding and ask that you not bring any bedding or pet beds.

Thank you for taking such good care of my little fat ball of Fuzzy!

My cat Fuzzy stayed here for a week while I was on vacation... She had never been boarded anyway (is a rescue kitty) and I guess she was a little shy. I loved the 'condo' she was staying in....had a place for her to hide out when she was feeling extra shy... I will surely board her here again, when the need arises.

A great place!

A great place! You don't have to worry about leaving your furry loved ones there...Your pets will get to stay in large 'condos' as they are called and they aren't just left in the pens all the time either! They play in one of the playrooms several times a day...I think the Cat Cottage is the best place ever!

Hi, my name is Tuffy. I am a eight year old tuxedo cat.

Hi, my name is Tuffy. I am a eight year old tuxedo cat, 'a big fat fur ball' from what I've been told. I LOVE staying at the Cat Cottage and you will too! It's a great place to stay if you have to leave your home like I do when Mom thinks she needs another vacation and I can't go. She packs up my buddy Tweetie (he's a bird) and off we go.

Cat Cottage was advised as an excellent choice

I needed a place for my cat, Sena, to stay for long term and the Cat Cottage was advised as an excellent choice. I found Sena's boarding to be excellent in every way. Was too glad she had enjoyed some 'friends' visiting. Will of course keep your facilities in mind for the future times of boarding.

I have always felt extremely comfortable leaving my kitty with Barbara

I've never been a fan of boarding pets, but I must say that I have always felt extremely comfortable leaving my kitty with Barbara. Her facility is extremely clean and she gives each animal special attention. Actually, my pets have not missed me at all while away. It's the BEST.

I am just blown away that there is a facility operated with such high standards like this in Northwest Arkansas!

Her rates were more than fair! Considering how much contact and attention she pays to the animals from sun up to sundown. She lets the cats out of the condos the majority of the day as long as they play well with others and if you have a loner cat thats OK too because she can divide the cottage into sections and play individuly as well.
