Moving with Cats

As exasperating as moving can be, no one in the household feels this more intensely than our feline friends. As creatures of habit, the noise of moving and adjusting to a new environment can make them anxious.

Here are a few tips to help reduce the stress your cat feels during a move.

Before the move:

  • Taking out their crate/carrier a few days prior helps them get used to it and be more comfortable with the idea of getting into it.

On the Day of:

  • Before you start loading up your truck clear out a room as far from the noise as possible and set up their things (litter, food, toys, etc.). If possible, its best to set them up in a room where one of these things is usually housed, the idea is to be surrounded by as many familiar things as possible.
  • Once you’ve got your stuff all loaded and its time to ready the cat, I find it best to get their stuff packed up (in an easily accessible box) and then get them into their crate.
  • During the drive to your new home leave them in their crate, this prevents them from dashing out of the car when you stop and keeps them in a familiar/safe space.
  • Once you have arrived at your new home, set your furry friend up in a room of their own with a door that closes, let them get used to their new surroundings slowly. Make sure to set up the litter, food and water, even put a few toys.

I hope this is helpful when you plan your next move!

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday April 6, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. Our door will be locked. Please call the number posted on the front door when you arrive and one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians will come to take the history and collect your pet. Our veterinarian will contact you by phone to discuss your pet's health before you leave.

2. We are offering urgent care appointments only at this time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8 am - 6 pm, Wednesday 8 am - 7 pm, and Friday 8 am - 4 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us ahead of time to ensure we have what you need and can have it prepared before your arrival. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
