Pets are a major part of our lives; we treat them like family because they are family. Opening in 2015, Whiskers on Kittens Boarding is not your typical small pet boarding house. We have taken a lot of time in creating a comfortable environment that is not just secure for animals but also welcoming to our pet owners.
We measure our success by the happiness of the pets and the owners that come through our door. For us, it is all about being attentive and responsive to the needs of the pets and of course the wishes of the owners. If there is a smile on a face or a playful kitty, we know we've done a good job.
We here at Whiskers on Kittens take great pride in our ability to care for your cat. Your cat's needs are our top priority and they will receive a lot of individual attention. All of our staff are cat lovers and cat owners (owned by cats may be the better term) and know just how to pamper your kitty while Mom and Dad are away. Please bring your cats food with you to avoid diet changes during their stay. We will provide the feeding bowls, so you don't have to bring yours! We also encourage you to bring a favorite toy, towel, T-shirt or whatever might make your cat feel more at home. Please note payment is due at drop-off.

Why Should I Board My Cat?
It is important to remember that cats do not usually travel well. They usually do not enjoy it, nor do they adapt well to travel. Many people who try to take kitty along with them on their vacation end up spending most of their time searching for their escaped pet.
Leaving your cat with friends can be just as unsatisfactory. Cats must go through an adjustment period in a new environment and this means they will not look upon your friend's house as "home" for quite a while. Therefore, your cat may try to escape from the strange house at every opportunity or hide as a fear reaction. Most cat owners realize that it is not fair to impose this kind of responsibility on their friends, nor is it a safe arrangement for their pets.
Obviously, the most satisfactory way of arranging for such care is to entrust your cat to a qualified cats only kennel, where we have the most stress free environment for your cat, and where the personnel are trained in observing and handling the problems which may arise in your absence.
Cats enjoy the "protected" feeling they get from being placed in a condo unit while being boarded. Your cat will probably want to sit in the corner of his unit and stare, until he feels comfortable in the new environment. Human contact does not necessarily accelerate this period of acclimatizing. It has to take place at the cat's own speed. A common reaction of cat owners to the idea of boarding is "kitty loves to run around." Perhaps he does at home, but while he is in unfamiliar surroundings, his condo gives him a feeling of safety. Cats exercise isometrically. This means that when a cat has enough room to stretch, he can exercise every muscle in his body. When your cat is in strange surroundings, around strange cats, he/she will prefer safety to space.

What our customers are saying about us!
I love Whiskers on Kittens! They are so good to our kitten. Our kitty Storm gets to play with other cats. She isn't locked in a cage all day and she genuinely seems to love going there. She makes a new friend every time she visits. Jack, Debby and Morgan are fantastic!

We used Whiskers on Kittens to board our cat while we were traveling for the holidays. Our cat is very social and loves being with people, so we were worried about leaving him in a boarding facility. But our worries were quickly dispelled - we received constant updates with pictures of how he was doing, the owners were personally there all day at the facility, and I knew he was well cared for at Whiskers on Kittens. We will definitely be using them again!

The staff here is SUPER friendly and VERY accommodating. I love the size of the cat condos. We just moved to the Atlanta area and are looking for a place to board our cat when we travel. We did a trial run at Christmas and when we got Bob back, he seemed content. Each cat has an adequate size cat condo to stay in with room for a small perch, a bed, and a place for food. They have a hole to go down into in order to access their liter. Each cat has the option of getting out daily and going to the playroom if they want. Bob (our cat) didn't want to go to the play room... as I expected. He was not pushed to do something he didn't want. I suggested next time that they pick him up and put him in there on day 2 or 3 and they are open to trying that next time. They usually let the cat go in there by themselves which is smart because if you have a cat, you know everything has to be their idea. Our cat is just a little scared so we are going to try something different with him. I also love that the cats do not interact with the other cats there. I received a few pictures while Bob was there. Once again, the staff is awesome! I highly recommend for cat boarding. Oh, they don't allow dogs. :) Feel free to contact me through google+ if you have any questions about my experience here.

So happy I found this place. I am a brand new cat owner and even though people had told me how stressed a cat is when out of their environment, I felt my kitten was just too young to leave at home alone even with someone coming once a day. So I decided to board her. Whiskers on Kittens sent me pictures every day to show me how she was doing and even on the very first night I was surprised to see she was playing! When I went to pick her up, I could tell she was perfectly content. It makes me so happy to know I have someplace I can take her when I am traveling and know she will be having her own vacation while I am having mine.
