Do the cats fight at the hotel?
When cats are housed together, they do not have their own territory. At home, they often fight with their neighbour cats to defend their own garden. At the hotel, none of the guests have their own territory, so they will not fight to defend it. The guests leave to go home soon enough before they develop the idea that they own the hotel. New guests will sometimes a bit grumpy and growl at the other guests for a day or so, but they will soon blend in with the rest and even become friends with the other guests.
What happens when my cat will stay at the hotel for the first time?
New cats will be housed in their own bedroom (1.20-
Experience has learnt that new cats are a bit scared of all the new things they see and hear. All other guests, on the contrary, are very inquisitive to know the newcomer. This can be very frightening to the new guest. So we give them opportunity to get used to the sounds and smells and other guests without direct contact.
It will take most guests about 24 hours to get used to their new surroundings.
My cat is not used to being with other cats
Most of our guests are not used to being with other cats. It depends on your cat´s character how much time it will take for him to get used to his new surroundings. Cats that are a bit bashful will take longer than very cheerful outgoing cats to blend in with the others. Most cats will take about 24 hours to get used to the new surroundings.
Moreover, we have created many hiding places for the reserved cats, so they can safely hide if they should want to.
My cat is quite bashful
We offer a seperate section for shyer and elderly cats. This section also has a nice outside run and many hiding places but is somewhat smaller and accomodates less cats.
My cat got the flu after visiting the hotel, in spite of the vaccinations
Vaccinations, as required by law for the stay at a hotel for cats, do not cover all the existing kinds of flu. As all guests stay together, they could give each other a kind of flu not covered by the now existing vaccinations. We always treat flu after consulting our vet and keep healthy animals away from the ones with flu.
When your cat develops flu within 5 days after picking him up from the hotel, look for signs as listlessness, not eating/drinking, sneezing, coughing. As long as your cat is still eating and drinking, you can wait a day or two without consulting your vet. Should your cat get ill, i.e. not eating and drinking and developing fever, we advise you to contact your vet.
You can also contact us to keep us informed and get advice.
