Your cat can stay.  Their fleas cannot!

Fleas are a year-round reality in Oregon.  For the health and safety of your cat, our team, and all cats in our care, it is our firm policy to flea dip a cat immediately upon discovery of live fleas.

Features at both Sellwood and Tabor Locations

  • Each facility averages 4000 square feet with about 25 rooms, so every cat gets twice the space, and ample time out to tour the facilities.
  • Our Human to Cat Ratio is one great team member for every 7-10 rooms.
  • Every room is ventilated with clean fresh air, central heating and cooling, and hospital-grade flooring.

Cat Boarding Done Right

When your cat boards at Cats in the City they are provided a personalized room, or “apartment,” as some customers have referred to our rooms.  All our private boarding options are large and provide a relaxing, safe, and enjoyable experience for your cat.  Cats receive ample time to explore the common areas, playrooms, and Catio, when available.

We keep careful watch over our furry guests. Cats enjoy frequent contact with skilled care providers, petting, playtime, and treats that you bring or that we provide. We follow your instructions regarding feeding, medications, and other care needs.

Special needs cats: We’re skilled at taking care of pets with special needs, including older animals with low mobility. We commonly administer insulin, oral medications, injections, and Sub-Q fluids.

Our pledge to you and your cat:

  • Your cat will get playtime and attention from our cat-loving team.
  • Animal technician and animal behaviorist on staff.
  • We ensure a flea-free environment.
  • Our home-style facilities are super clean and are climate-controlled (central air conditioning in the summer / heating in the winter).
  • We will watch your kitty for any signs of potential health problems, and will respond appropriately if a situation presents.
  • HEPA filtration and UV Light Air Exchange Systems to ensure air quality.
  • Veterinarian on-call 365 days-a-year

How it works

  • You make a reservation, and choose one of three private bedroom options: Studio Bedroom, Master Bedroom, and Grand Master Bedroom. Your cat spends the day and night in our comfortable home-style facilities.
  • Medicate your cat with flea treatment, and bring in proof that kitty is on flea treatment, or we will apply a monthly dose of flea treatment on kitty upon arrival for $20. The only exception is a letter from your veterinarian explaining why your cat cannot be given a monthly dose of flea treatment.  We do not accept off-brand or discount store products.
  • Make an appointment to bring in your cat, along with sufficient amounts of food and treats, as well as any medications and instructions. We provide everything else.
  • Complete and submit the electronic forms by clicking the “Boarding Check-in Form” and “Medical Authorization and Release” buttons below.
