When we opened our doors in 1995, The Cats’ Inn was just a tiny little Inn across the hall from where we are today. Since then we’ve grown our business by building trust. We take our responsibilities seriously and understand fully what it means to be the cats’ voices. In fact one mantra we carry close to our hearts says: “Do the right thing even when no one is looking.” This sign hangs front and center at our Inn and we all know the importance and sacredness of doing right by all the cats that we are fortunate enough to be able to spend so much of our days with.
We had a dream, a vision to be able to care for cats in an intimate and specialized way. We wanted to make sure every one of our feline friends felt safe and secure in a place that was suited for all different types of temperaments and personalities, and to create a home environment comfortable for all of our feline friends. At The Cats’ Inn we pride ourselves on being a home away from home, caring for each individual cat as if they were our own. Although we are not the Ritz Carlton for cats we like to think of ourselves as the B & B they fall in love with.
What Happened Next…
In 2002 we moved across the hall into a larger space and in 2010 we expanded once again. In the process, we took the opportunity to add a state of the art ventilation system similar to those used in hospitals (far exceeding vet standards), and expanded the front office to make our human friends feel more welcome. We created a room of kitty cottages specifically for those who like a little extra space and privacy. We even added our large villas so cat families (up to 5 of the same family) can stay together. Additionally, we’ve updated all of our older suites making them larger and more comfortable, complete with glass doors to provide a better view for all.
We also expanded our grooming services, having discovered that cats do in fact like baths! Our kitty spa guests love getting pampered and know how much their parents will love the way they feel and smell when they pick them up! We now offer a full range of services, including baths, lion cuts, soft paw mani/pedis and hot oil treatments. We raised the bar for gentle grooming, so much so that even other groomers recommend our services. For those guests that opt to forgo spa treatments, we strive to ensure they leave us looking better than when they arrived. Daily brush-outs are a must! ☺
What has made the kitties meow with joy? Our six fabulous playrooms! Every room is purrrfectly designed to entertain and suit kitties of all ages and purrrrsonality types. We offer smaller cozier spaces for cats that thrive in a more intimate setting, and larger playrooms for those that like to romp around and socialize. The larger areas include windows with views of the beautiful Belmont hills and courtyard. Playrooms include plenty of cat trees with cubbies to lounge in, and climbing shelves for kitties that prefer to be up high. In fact one of our unique amenities includes our famous and super popular cat walks that run the length of our facility all around the walls that are enjoyed by many height seeking cats. For those that prefer lower grounds our comfy window perches and plush princess beds are popular for sunbathing on and enjoying the funny murals for the artsy cat’s viewing pleasure.
At The Cats’ Inn all cats are allowed out anywhere between 3 to 6 hours per day, and all receive extra cuddle time and plenty of TLC. We are all true cat lovers here.
