County Cat Vacations is accepting cat guests here in our rural house. We are located in Prince Edward County on Highway 62 South, just 5 minutes south of the Bay Bridge, convenient to both Belleville and The County.
Here at County Cat Vacations we have no more than 2 cats at a time. (A day or 2 overlap is possible in case of unplanned need.) If they are unrelated the cats will hate each other for a couple of days, then as the days go by they will become friends.
We want your cats to be happy here. We do not ever cage them. Each cat guest can sleep where he wants (except on my computer keyboard and the kitchen table), and go anywhere in the house to explore and patrol for mice (there aren't any but they can search if they wish).
There is a large window with outside bird feeders and some friendly chipmunks (all named "Chippy") for them to watch.
Our guest cats receive lots of individual attention, toys, beds and little tents to sleep in if they want, and personal playtime with me every day. I talk to them all the time, we do have some good conversations. Water is changed twice daily to keep it fresh.
And, exciting news! Saint John Ambulance now has a "pet CPR" course. It isn't held often but I have asked to be in the next class.
Rates are $15 per cat per day, payable (like other guest rentals) in advance.
I am putting this here now for your information, this is what you will need to bring with your cats:
- enough food for your cats for the days they will be here and a little extra. I have bowls.
- a kitty litter box and kitty litter
- treats if they are used to that. Hint: any brand of dry cat food different from their usual one may be considered a treat, they won't know the difference
- their brush
- your vet's name, address, phone, and email, and record of immunizations etc. I will scan the records and return the original to you, Medications if any. Written instructions if you have a special routine for feeding.
- a favourite toy or two if you wish, though I have lots of toys here.
- their blankie or anything else they can't live without
We do NOT accept outdoor cats as they cry to get out (our owls and coyotes will eat them), and because outdoor cats get fleas from outside critters that will transfer to other guest cats or even to humans (that would be me). And now there are ticks to worry about. Did I say no outdoor cats.
When responding please include your name, phone number with best time to call, and email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will get back to you promptly.
