Tips on preparing your cats for boarding

Sending your meowlings to a cat hotel can be daunting not just for pawrents but for your kitties too. Take note of these things you can provide to the hotel to ensure the well-being of your cat and others:

Proof of vaccination & recent flea and tick treatment

Most, if not all, pet boarding hotels will ask for proof of vaccination as a precaution so that your cat is less likely to fall ill while on staycation. You should also send your cat to be treated for fleas and ticks beforehand so other cats won’t pick up nasty pests during their stay. Your cat’s regular vet should be able to provide a medical chit stating their clean bill of health for both.

If you’re unsure of your cat’s vaccination history, you’ll need to schedule at least 2 vaccination appointments 2-4 weeks apart for a complete dose.

Food, feeding schedule & dietary requirements

Cats are not big fans of change. Put them in a new environment and they’re likely to protest by refusing to eat. To ease that transition, you can provide the cat hotel with your cat’s regular food and treats, as well as their portion sizes and feeding schedule.

Even if the hotel provides meals, you should still prepare a few days’ worth of food, just in case they do not take well to what’s being served. Having their own food also prevents stomach upsets that could lead to big messes outside the litter box.

You should also let your cat’s caretakers know about any supplements, vitamins, and medication that your cat needs to take. Check in with the hotel if they’ll be able to accommodate these arrangements before making a booking. Most places will charge extra for such services.

Favourite toys, comfort pillows & blankets

Another way to ensure your cat’s comfort in a new place is to provide the cat hotel with pillows, blankets, and beds that they frequently use. Some cat hotels also recommend that owners leave behind a worn t-shirt or pillowcase so that cats have a familiar scent to put them at ease.

And when it comes to playtime, your cats will be more inclined to come out of their shell with strangers when their fave toys are present. This way, they’ll pick up quickly that these strangers can be trusted to look after them.

Sending your cats to a cat hotel in Singapore
