At North Paw we also love our felines friends! They are amazing, discerning beings who can learn tricks, be cuddly, and want to explore. We sincerely value what cats bring to this world.
We offer specialized, comfortable, tall bungalow spaces where your kitten or cat can be stimulated and/or rest easy. Each cat has their own bungalow and enjoys open room time with cuddles from our care team throughout the day. There is also an extra large, deluxe suite where your kitty can live like a queen/king!
If your kitty is harness-trained we will go out in the large play yard.
Members of our care team are also neonatal kitten fosters. You can view these kittens hanging out in the Kitten Kingdom.
Multiple Pets Discount
Cats/dogs from the same family who stay together in the same bungalow will receive 10% off
their boarding rate. Cats from the same family boarded in separate bungalows will be charged at
the appropriate Individual Bungalow rate.
Flea/Tick Medication applied 48 hours prior to drop off
Cat(s) should be spayed/neutered unless prohibited by age or medical condition
Feline Leukemia Vaccination
Cats should enjoy human interaction and should be able to be handled easily by humans; biting & scratching are behaviors we cannot tolerate for staff safety.
We cannot accept cats who have a history of spraying/marking. Cats that have no history of this but do spray/mark or urinate or defecate outside of litter boxes will be asked to be picked up immediately and pet parents will be charged a minimum of $150 for sanitation. Pet parents should understand that they are agreeing to this possible fee by bringing their cats to board at North Paw.
A cash deposit of $150 is collected at check-in and a receipt is emailed. This deposit is held in the event there are cleaning issues (i.e. litter box misses, spraying) or other damage to the facility. It is North Paw's goal to always return deposits in full.
*Cats & Dogs from the same family are charged at Individual rates & receive a 10% discount on boarding.
Nail Trim -- $20
Cuddles & Love -- Included!
Access to open room time. Our feline guests also have access to the open

Food & Instructions
Medication & Instructions
We allow 1 towel or small blanket per cat.
We will do our best to return items in the same condition they arrived however we may not have time to launder the items. We cannot be responsible for lost, dirty, or damaged items.
Owners should provide the name of someone within close range of North Paw who can pick up their cat in case of illness or injury. This is no different than if a child were at a camp. North Paw is not a veterinary clinic and will advise owners when it is necessary for their animal to be picked up, due to health or behavioral concerns. The expectation is that the cat is picked up by 6pm if the communication occurs Monday-Friday.
Check Ins & Check Outs (same process as for dogs):
Check in for boarding is between 6:30am and 9am Monday-Friday and should be pre-scheduled so we know when to expect your Little. A full day charge is applied on check in days regardless of drop off time.
Check out is by 9am on the last date of the reservation, otherwise an additional day of boarding will be applied. Cats not picked up by 6:15pm will be placed back into boarding for the night and an additional boarding day will be charged.
Cancellations & No Show Policy
Reservations that do not overlap with holidays (holiday list is below): Cancellations must be emailed by 9am, 5 days in advance of the date of your dog's boarding reservation.

Reservations that overlap with holidays (holiday list is below): Cancellations must be made by 9am, 7 days in advance of the date of your dog's boarding reservation for non-holidays.
