What are cat boarding kennels?


When the owners are at vacation or out of the home, they can give their cats at cat boarding kennels for their care. The cat boarding kennels are the places where the cats are kept for a temporary period of time when they cannot manage to stay at the house of their owners. These places are also known as boarding catteries and are mostly utilized by the owners when they go on a holiday. The boarding catteries are also used during shifting homes or resettlement in a home, construction or building work as well as in such situations when the owners become unavailable in emergency situations. The main purpose to send the cats to the boarding catteries is to ensure that they are well looked after and taken care of even in the absence of the owners. It is mandatory for the owners to cater to the well being of the cats and see to their safety and security at all times. There are many protection bodies and concerned authorities who are in charge of protection of the cats. Therefore any negligence in this regard comes under legal matters which entitles legal punishments to the owners, if found guilty.


The cat boarding kennels must be licensed and examined at regular intervals of time, by the local environmental authorities department according to certain acts catering for animals and pets. A veterinary surgeon must pay regular visit to such places whenever necessary to ensure that the cats are running smooth health and are lively in nature. The vets ensure that the cats are fit both mentally and physically.
