What to bring

  1. Food/Treats: Meals are included as part of our nightly rate. We offer a variety of dry and canned foods to suit your pet’s appetite. If your pet is eating a specific diet from home, please bring it as we are happy to accommodate that request. Please ensure to bring an appropriate amount for your pet’s stay in a container or original packaging. We will take detailed instructions on the quantity and frequency of your pet’s diet and serve meals accordingly.
  2. Medication/Supplement: Please bring all medications in their original packaging. We will be responsible for labeling each medication according to your instructions. We will confirm the dose, frequency and duration of administration with you. Ideally it would be helpful to know the reason the pet is taking the medication. Please be prepared to provide this information or provide contact information so that we can verify this with your veterinarian.
  3. Bedding/toys: Having something familiar that smells like home often helps to make cats feel more secure. If you chose to bring along select items from home, please ensure that they are reasonably sized and can be laundered or washed easily.
  4. Litter/Litter box: Some cats can be very particular about the size, shape and texture of their litter and litter box. If your cat would prefer to have the same litter box and or litter, you are more than welcome to bring it along.
  5. Carriers: To ensure the safety of your cat, please bring your cat in a carrier.

General Cat Requirements

To ensure the health and safety of all the pets that stay with us, we require that your cat’s vaccinations be current.

The vaccinations that we require are: Rabies and FVRCP.

We are happy to accept this information via email, current vaccine record or veterinary invoice or verbal confirmation from your veterinary clinic.

If your cat has special vaccine considerations or exemptions, please speak to one of our Client Care Team members today!

We understand that any environment away from home can be stressful for some cats. We closely monitor appetite and litter box habits to ensure that each cat is as comfortable as possible in our environment and we are happy to work around the individual personality traits of each cat.
As advances in veterinary care become more available to pet owners, our pets are living longer, fuller lives. We are proud of our ability to accommodate virtually any medical condition that pet owners are able to manage at home. We have treated pets with topical, oral and even injectable medications while still providing a stimulating and comfortable environment. Call us today to discuss how we can accommodate your pet.

Pets with contagious illness or that have recently recovered from surgery, require special considerations beyond our care. If this applies to your pet, please speak with your veterinarian to discuss care options for your pet.  

Parker Pet Care does not place age restrictions on cats coming into our facility. However, all cats must be fully vaccinated prior to entering our facility and final vaccinations are usually administered at 16 weeks (4 months) of age.

Senior pets are also welcome. In fact, we’ve cared for many guests from the time they were kittens to well into their golden years!

In order to maintain a comfortable environment for all cats staying with us, we require that all male cats are neutered. The scent of intact male cat urine can be quite strong and upsetting to the other cats in our cattery.

All neutered males as well as spayed or intact females, are welcome to stay in our cattery.

Does your pet require Catered Care? No problem!
