California Cat Center welcomes all healthy cats over 6 months of age, either spayed or neutered & up-to-date on their vaccinations. We also welcome cats with special needs, including diabetics, those with kidney disease, those on medications and FIV positive cats.
Long-Term Stays: A 10% discount is given for stays of 21 days or longer. A 20% discount is provided for stays of 60 days or longer when the first month is paid in advance and the second month is secured by a credit card authorization.
Vaccinations: All cats must have current FVRCP and Rabies vaccines no less than 10 days or more than three years from the date of check in. We require kittens to have completed a series of three vaccines before boarding. Adult cats should be vaccinated at one year of age and thereafter every three years. Please provide proof of vaccine, which may be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Elderly cats with adequate vaccine history may be boarded with a letter from their veterinarian excusing the vaccine.
Credit Cards: All reservations must be confirmed by credit card and secured at the time of check in by credit card authorization. An authorization does NOT charge to the card, but authorizes California Cat Center to charge the card when services have been rendered, up to the amount of the authorization. Although debit cards may be used, please consult your bank for policies concerning record keeping for authorizations. Generally, debit cards used for an authorization require the customer's bank balance to have adequate funds for the authorization at the time of both the authorization (check in) as well as the payment (check out).
Holiday Season: Our holiday season starts November 15 through January 15th, during this time, we have a minimum stay requirement of no less than 3 nights.
Cancellations: All reservations from January 16 through November 14 may be cancelled without penalty up to 48 hours before the check-in appointment. Those cancelled after that time will be charged a fee equivalent of one night boarding for each cat cancelled. Holiday cancellations for reservations between November 15 and January 15 may be made 10 days or more before check-in date without penalty. Cancellations thereafter will be charged for a three-night stay.
Abandonment: California Cat Center is bound by California law concerning abandonment of pets. Civil Code Section 1834.5 reads:
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, whenever any animal is delivered to any veterinarian, dog kennel, cat kennel, pet-grooming parlor, animal hospital, or any other animal care facility pursuant to any written or oral agreement entered into after the effective date of this section, and the owner of such animal does not pick up the animal within 14 calendar days after the day the animal was due to be picked up, the animal shall be deemed to be abandoned. The person into whose custody the animal was placed for care shall first try for a period of not less than 10 days to find a new owner for the animal, and, if unable to place the animal with a new owner, shall thereafter humanely destroy the animal so abandoned.
If an animal so abandoned was left with a veterinarian or with a facility which has a veterinarian, and a new owner cannot be found pursuant to this section, such veterinarian shall humanely destroy the animal. There shall be a notice posted in a conspicuous place, or in conspicuous type in a written receipt given, to warn each person depositing an animal at such animal care facilities of the provisions of this section.
