Dorm Room guests enjoy an 18 or 24 square foot indoor, climate controlled room with a privacy divider on three sides, a special comfy bed, soft music, heated floors as well as two meals and three walks each day. We provide lots of toys, a special comfy bed or fleece bedding for your pet. Please do not bring any items from home, as we have everything your pet will need for pampering and comfort here.
CAT CONDOS are air conditioned/heated and offer our feline guests a quiet, sunny, spacious place to relax. Each condo offers a resting shelf and an east window along with a fleece bed. Our Caretakers visit each cat 3 or more times a day and attend to their litter box, food and water. Our cat playroom provides space to explore the aquarium and climbing tree. It also features a view of the Cat Hospital lobby.
