Cats are notorious for hating change, and going from your home where they know every nook and cranny to our boarding facility can be stressful. However, you can’t always take your cat with you when you travel.
Gentle Care Animal Hospital offers pet boarding in Lawrence, KS for all current clients. We gladly welcome your cat to board with us, even if he or she isn’t excited about leaving home. Fortunately, you can take several steps before your cat boards with us for the first time to make the experience less stressful.
You Have Already Taken the Most Important Step
As a current client of Gentle Care Animal Hospital, you can feel confident that you’re leaving your cat in good hands because you are already familiar with our facility and staff. Below are a few other things you can do to get your kitty ready to board with us.
Book a Short Stay Before a Long Stay if Possible
Booking a short stay is a good trial run for those times when you need to be away from your cat for longer periods. You might even consider scheduling an overnight stay with us while you’re in town to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Pack Some Familiar Objects from Home
Cats can feel anxious when they don’t recognize any smells in a new place. One simple way to reduce your cat’s stress level is to bring some things from home, such as a blanket your cat enjoys curling up on to nap. Bringing an article of your clothing can also be helpful since your cat will pick up your scent and feel comforted by it.
