Keeping in touch with Kitty

How technology can improve your boarding experience!

If you are anything like me, you can’t even leave the house without your fur babies tugging at your heart strings, and giving you the guilt trip! …And now you’re thinking of going on a two week vacation – What ever will you do?! While you’re off sunbathing on the beach, you know that loving ball of fur that you’ve left behind is going to be in the back of your mind. At Cats’ Castle we want to take away any of the worries you might have about your kitty– and we do this by making sure you are able to keep in touch while you’re away! We are also pretty advanced at doing this too, if we do say so ourselves!

The most basic way for you keep in contact is through phone calls and emails. While your kitty is staying with us, you are more than welcome to contact us at any point in time to get an update, and we’d love to tell you how they are doing! That being said, it takes most kitties anywhere from 24-48 hours to really settle in and acclimatize to their new surroundings. You want to be sure to give your kitty enough time to settle in before calling us, so that we can give you a more accurate description regarding how they are/will be making out.

Our staff at Cats’ Castle also do weekly photo sessions, and will upload photos of each kitty that is staying with us to an album on our Facebook page. This way you can see how your kitty is doing, and we are often able to capture photos of them at play, or in a cuddle session with a staff member. A lot of our clients find peace of mind being able to see for themselves that their kitties are comfortable and having a great time (opposed to taking our word for it over the phone!).

If this still doesn’t cut it for you, then maybe our newest innovation is just what you need! We have installed Catcams which can be rented out in several of our suites, so you can stream live video footage directly from the suite your kitty is staying in! The Catcams also hold video history – so if you log in to see what your fur baby is up to, but they are simply snoozing, or are out of their suite roaming the room and you can’t see them – you can scroll through over 24 hours of footage from your kitties’ suite! The software we use also shows a little polka dot on the timeline below the video screen every time there was movement on the camera, so you can easily find the most exciting moments of your kitties day! It is also capable of night vision, so you can keep a close eye on your kitty even in the early hours of the morning – or see what they were up to in the late hours of the night!

In short, whether it is verbal reassurance, a weekly photo, or constant surveillance of your kitty that will put your mind at ease – Cats’ Castle has you covered! Now you can go off and enjoy your vacation, knowing that you’ll be able to keep in touch with your kitty!
