In-Home Boarding for Cats

For kitties who desire the comfort of sleeping in a cushy bed, cuddling with a loving host and relaxing in the peace and quiet of a pet-free home, our host homes are the perfect solution!

In response to requests from kitty parents for an alternative to in-home cat sitting or boarding at a facility, our unique host home service matches kitties in need of boarding with host homes in need of a kitty. Whether your kitty needs just four nights accommodation while you escape on a long weekend or a month long vacation while you renovate your home, our hosts will welcome your kitty as one of the family.

  • Either have a phone chat or meet your host and visit the home prior to finalizing your kitty's reservation
  • Your host will provide all kitty care in accordance with your instructions for feeding, grooming and medications.
  • Book in advance to have the same host each time you travel, so your kitty has a true home away from home!
  • Host homes can text or email you pictures and updates about your kitty's vacation
  • Your kitty will be a loved member of the family, sleeping on beds and lounging in laps as much as he or she likes
  • Please view our rates page for information about pricing


  • Minimum reservation is 4 nights, except at Christmas / New Years, when there is a 7 night minimum reservation between Dec 20 - Jan 4.

  • If you would like to visit your host home in advance of reserving, you must do so within 7 days of being matched. There is a $14 booking fee for all reservations that require an advance visit to the host's home, which is payable prior to the home visit and is 100% nonrefundable.

  • To finalize a reservation, a 50% deposit is due within 8 days of being matched or within 24 hours of visiting the host home (whichever is sooner), after which the host may be re-allocated to another customer

  • The remaining 50% is due on check-in day

  • Cancellation with 30+ days' notice - full refund less $25+GST (one night) of deposit

  • Cancellation with 8 - 29 days' notice - full refund less $50+GST (two nights) of deposit

  • Cancellation with 0 - 7 days' notice - forfeit 100% of deposit to a maximum of $200.00

  • No refunds available for early check-outs after booking has commenced

Important That You Know...

  • You must provide your kitty's food and clean litter box. A 5% discount is available if you supply your kitty's brand of litter for the duration of their stay.

  • Please provide your cats scratcher, grooming tools, toys, clean bedding and anything else you think will make your kitty more comfortable.

  • All host homes are indoor only.

  • Finding the right host home may take us time - please provide as much advance notice as possible

  • Cats with outdoor access may be required to have a monthly flea treatment applied at least 5 days prior to check-in

Who Are The Hosts?

Each of our host homes is different - they may be an individual, couple or family and they live in every size of dwelling, from bachelor suites to spacious homes.

All of our host parents are dedicated cat lovers who have chosen not to adopt their own cat at this time for various reasons, such as future travel plans or financial considerations. Many are former clients whose own kitties have passed away and they miss the companionship of a cat. A home is so empty without a kitty!
