Cage Free Kitty Boarding
Dragonfly cats are not boarded in cages in the same areas as dogs such as your veterinarian or other area kennels might use. Our pet-friends are
quartered in a luxury cottage containing play and climbing perches and toys, comfy sleeping beds with extra large litter boxes - all within a
completely separate private cottage.
Our cattery Cottage is strictly for the convenience of our feline friends our brand new cattery cottage is now completely separate from our dog
cottage enclosure. We believe this is one of the most secure environments for our cats to stay in, especially for those "escape-artist" type cats.
Dragonfly features a quiet, cozy, cattery which allows for an easy adjustment for your feline friends in their new surroundings. Most cats in a new
environment, will hide under a bed or piece of furniture for a few days until they adjust to the change in their surroundings. Our cottage mimics
that type of environment with tall climbing towers and plenty of places to explore and play, wall perches and hide-in-me cardboard city for
additional fun and games. The cottage has sunny windows with perches for a view of the gardens and the outdoors. Each cat will have access to a
scratching toy house/tree, multiple wall perches, heated mats, individual litter trays along with individual food and water bowls.
Weather permitting our feline guest have the advantage of fresh air with access to a fully enclosed outside turfed atrium for bird-watching
and sunbathing. The Cottage is fully stocked with toys and comes with all the conveniences of home including a TV, comfy sleeping sofas, and a
library of books which may be and are knocked over by the cats as they play and explore, there is an in-wall aquarium for extra stimulation,
our feline friends receive play visits from caretakers and daily "alone time" to roam the cottage creating their "home away from home."
Kittens and cats will love spending time with us, your cat will always enjoy fun time in our "Kitty-Paradise" with nutritious meals, and quality
care while staying with us.
Your cat has a vacation paradise home away from home. We will attend to your cat's personal care, daily needs, housekeeping, nutritious meals,
all in their very private feline accommodation area. We also board many long term cats over the winter months while their owners get away
for a few months during the coldest times. We do provide long term rates for 30 days or more of boarding.
Dragonfly caretakers keep a tight schedule each and every day, thoroughly cleaning our cattery cottage in the morning and evening.

It is important that you bring a few extra things with you to make your cat’s stay less stressful:
An old T-shirt with your ‘scent' on it; grab one of your old shirts from the dirty laundry (I know it sounds gross but believe me your pet will
relish in it, it smells like you and this is comforting for them) or you can sleep in a clean T-shirt for a few days to get it smelling like you.
Home scents are very soothing for cats. Any special foods; we provide high quality food for all of our cats, but if your feline is on a special diet,
you should bring it with you.
