LIVING AREA (AKA Playroom)
Here we can just sit and cuddle, watch the fish tanks or play with a variety of interactive toys.
We have everything from fancy toys to paper bags, we even have shelves just to knock things off of, and laptops to sleep on!
The kitchen area has an over- large window sill for watching the world go by.
Even shy cats appreciate having someone around, when there is no one with them, the cats may have the company of soft music, radio or screen viewing and sometimes silence - just like at home.
If you aren't vacationing while your cat is, you are most welcome to visit and spend time with your cat in our Cuddle Room and Catio (by appointment only please). - SUSPENDED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS AND IN SUPPORT OF SOCIAL DISTANCING
IN HOME ACCOMMODATION
Part of our home is dedicated to the cat hotel where the guests have their own suite and supervised access to living, kitchen and deck areas.
Each suite has its own window or access to a contained outside space.
Because all cats are individuals, each suite is thoughtfully designed to provide for a wide variety of activities and interests. There are hidey-holes, crows nests, scratching posts, toys galore and plenty of adventurous spaces to explore.
Most cats are unlikely to want to deal with unfamiliar cats while resident at the hotel, so they don't have to! Each suite is a spacious self-contained space with everything your cat will need to keep them happy. Activities outside of their suite is in rotation, one guest at a time.
We have six suites, this allows each guest to have plenty of care and attention tailored to their individual needs and preferences.
The cats are given access to additional activity spaces one at a time.
