“A dog is man’s best friend.” – That common saying may contain some truth, but dogs are not the only animal friend whose companionship most people enjoy. For many people, a cat is their best friend. Despite what dog lovers may believe, cats make excellent house pets as they are great companions, they are civilized members of the household, and they are easy to care for. Cats are clean and graceful animals, requiring very little care. They instinctively clean themselves and do their “business” in dirt or cat litter before covering it up with their paws.

Most people enjoy the companionship of cats as many cats are affectionate. They will snuggle up and ask to be petted, or scratched under the chin. Cats also will genuinely care about an owner they love. Therefore, why shouldn’t the cats also get the love they need the care they always desire from their owners? You can do special things for your cat also just as you would do for your best-friend such as treating them with care and affection and also planning out some holiday plans for them.

If you are a frequent traveller and animal owner, you are probably aware of the dilemma you face on where to keep your pet while you are on the road. If you hate leaving your pets at your neighbour’s place while you are travelling, you could now plan out on keeping your cat at a holiday home, where it will enjoy the luxury like you enjoy hotels and spend a holiday away from home.

Each cat has their own personality, but most cats are very independent and can be very stubborn. Most hotels have a lot of services specially designed for the well-being of your pet, they are created by keeping into account of the different animal behaviours they exhibit. These cat holiday homes are known as catteries, they provide an excellent and safe option for those who are concerned about the safety of their cats.

All the cats who board in a cattery receive the best possible care. They provide individual or family housing. Each cat has an insulated bedroom, with a cat flap or heavy cloth leading to its own exercise area with shelves and branches providing the opportunity for lots of exercise and play. Each chalet’s entrance is leading into a safety area to ensure your cat/kittens security, and only cats from the same home are housed together. Also, the food that they provide is a good variety of premium food, both wet and dry, and they try their best to accommodate the fussiest of eaters. You can also give them instructions on feeding your cat the timings, the diet plan and all other essential information you can provide for the best care of your cat.

You will have a professional to watch your cat while you are away. Many boarding catteries have an enclosed outdoor play area so your cat can enjoy the sunshine in the safety of an enclosure. As boarding catteries usually have other pets in their care, time in an outdoor play area is usually limited so each of their guests can enjoy specialized time outside. You will have somebody keeping a watch over your cat’s health & well being. As well as providing the basic requirements such as feeding many boarding catteries will spend time playing, grooming & petting your cat.

Your cat will have to be up to date on its vaccinations prior to arrival, and if fleas or parasites are found on the cat, most boarding cattery owners will treat your cat, but at your expense. If you are going away for an extended period of time you can be assured that your pet will be in the best of health and probably even better when you return home. It will be enjoying its vacation as you enjoy yours!
