Boarding for Cats
A Home Away From Home For Cats
We understand that you may feel stressed about leaving your cat when you go out of town — especially if they are ill, or when they are recovering from a procedure or surgery. At Clackamas Pet Clinic, we want to help put your mind at ease.
We provide complete medical boarding services for cats that have conditions standard boarding centers may not be equipped to accommodate. With our amenities, you can be sure your four-legged friend will enjoy rest and recovery.
Boarding: A Cat's Typical Day
Your cat will be fed according to your specifications and their requirements, to ensure their routine closely mimics their time at home.
Cats generally enjoy resting and recovering in our multi-storey, feline-friendly cat condos. Kitties who like to perch will have a nice vantage point, while those who prefer privacy will love our hideaway cubbies.
We offer daily one-on-one interaction with kitties (if they want it!) including play, snuggles, and pets. Litter boxes are checked, cleaned and disinfected periodically throughout the day.
Additionally, we refresh linens and clean your kitty's room daily to ensure your kitty feels relaxed and safe throughout their stay with us.
Our expert veterinarians and nurses will supervise your cat, administer medications and watch over them closely. Any required medications will be administered to your pet on the same schedule they are used to at home.

We will be glad to administer your pet's medications while they are with us.
- Can I get updates about my cat during their stay?
Yes, feel free to call us during your cat's stay for updates. If there is a problem, we will contact you via the emergency contact information you provide.
- How should I prepare for my cat's stay?
Each animal is different. To prepare for your pet's stay with us, we'll take the following steps to ensure that we can meet their unique needs.
Step 1: Contact us to get started
Call us to book, and to discuss details about your cat and your boarding needs. A member of our team will be happy to to coordinate your booking.
Please note that, due to the nature of our accommodations, we do not accept unaltered cats. Cats must be up to date with all vaccinations and free of fleas and ticks to stay at our facility.
Step 2: Book a trial stay
We want to be absolutely sure that we are a good fit for your cat before an extended stay. The trial stay consists of a full day of daycare where we can take the time to assess your cat's temperament and make sure they fit in with current boarders.
Step 3: Set your cat up for success
On the day you drop your cat off with us, there are a few steps you can take to help reduce any stress your cat may feel.
Spend some extra time with your cat beforehand, and make sure they get some vigorous exercise so that they are feeling calm. When you arrive at our facility, stay calm, cheerful and confident during the separation.
- What do you feed cats that don't have their own food?
We provide in-house cat food. Both prescription and over the counter diets are readily available.
