What to bring

Required items

1. Please bring a certificate, receipt, or other documentation from your veterinarian showing that your cat is up to date on rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. You may also ask your vet’s office to call us with this information before your cat arrives.

2. We ask that all cats travel to Catnip Hill in a pet carrier. This makes check-in and check-out much easier and more secure.

3. You should bring your cat’s bed or blanket, or some spare towels or pillows to use as bedding, since there are no soft furnishings in our guest rooms. The familiar smells will also help your cat relax.

4. Be sure to bring enough of your cat’s usual food to last throughout the stay (canned food encouraged). You’re also welcome to bring special treats or snacks.

Optional extras

A toy or two is a nice addition if your cat likes to play.

Scratching posts and cat trees are welcome as long as there are no protruding nails or screws on the bottom.

We normally provide litter boxes and unscented clumping litter, but you’re welcome to bring your own if your cat is very picky or has had litter-box “issues.”

We prefer that you not bring any dishes, bowls, utensils, can lids, and so on, since it’s very tricky to keep track of these things in the kitchen.
