Short and Long Term Boarding A happy and healthy pet starts with a plan!

Upper West Side Short- & Long-Term Boarding for Cats

Clean, Spacious & Dog-Free Amenities for Your Felines

At Manhattan Cat Specialists, our feline-only boarding area and cat condos are designed to provide comfort and privacy in a calm and quiet facility. Our multiple room boarding facility is temperature controlled and well ventilated. Boarding at our facility is ideal, especially if your cat has certain medical conditions (such as diabetes) that require medication. There will be a veterinarian and technicians to monitor your cat closely.

To arrange for short- or long-term boarding for your cat(s), call (917) 242-4235.

What Our Facilities Offer

Our feline facilities are thoroughly cleaned and sterilized between boarders. Our boarding areas feature two types of cages: standard cages (think of it as a “studio” apartment), and our cat condos (think of these as “one-bedroom” apartments). The condos are perfect for two cats boarding together, or one cat that might want extra space to move around. You can opt to reserve multiple cages for your cat(s). These cat condos have a walk-through portal where the cat can move freely from one section to the other. Due to crowding, this option is typically not available most holiday seasons.

We recommend that you bring your cat’s favorite food, treats, and toys. Please do not bring any special bedding or furniture. There may be an opportunity for your cat to have additional services (bath, grooming, dental cleaning, physical examination, etc.) if warranted. Please ask our staff about these extra services and their associated costs.

Our Requirements for Boarding

Manhattan Cat Specialists has a limited number of boarding space which is available for reservation to our clients. In order to board your cat(s) with us, your cat(s) will need to have had a physical examination by one of our veterinarians. Cats also must be up to date on rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. If your cat has been seen by us, you will most likely be able to board your cat without having to come in ahead of time for an exam. If your cat has not had an exam in over six months or your cat is overdue for vaccinations, we may insist that your cats receive a physical exam and vaccinations during their stay. If your cat has not been seen by us, we will be happy to retrieve your cat’s past medical records.

Generally, we will need to have one of our veterinarians give your cat a physical exam prior to boarding. We would also review your cat’s past vaccination history. If your cat has any medical requirements, such as prescription needs, we will be happy to take care of the regimen during the length of your cat’s stay.

Because we tend to book up quickly during the holiday season, we recommend reserving your cat’s holiday boarding long in advance.
