Luxury Suites

The Cat’s Meow features unique Cage-Free Suites that envelope your cat in luxury, bathe your cat in warmth from our sun-filled windows, and amuse with the sights and sounds of the forest. Our two cat cottages are built on 40 acres of land overlooking forest, marshland and green meadows. In the warmer months, we offer private indoor/outdoor living as each space comes with a fully enclosed, private cedar deck or grass run. Your cat’s holiday includes the thrill of seeing wild birds and hearing the sounds of crickets, peeper frogs, and the wind in the trees…

In the winter months our cozy fireplaces keep the kitties nice and warm. We have a rocking chair and you will often see us with a cat on our lap. When it is time to go to bed we tuck our cats in with a nice bedtime treat – another great day at The Cat’s Meow!

We Give Personalized Attention

One of the things that makes a significant difference for our regular clientele is that we get to know your cats and they get to know us! We do not have a staff that come and go. At The Cat’s Meow Inn, we love the work that we do and many clients come to think of us as extended family– some even calling us their kitties’ auntie and uncle! Working directly with your cats daily we get to know their personalities– whether they prefer tummy rubs or chin scratches, batting a ball or hide-and seek. When you call to get an update on your cat’s progress you talk with the owners directly. That’s refreshing.

No Dogs

We are a cats-only facility which means that the kitties enjoy peace and tranquility while they are here. Our clients return again and again because of the quality care we provide. We understand that your cats aren’t just pets but family members. That is just one of the reasons that people travel from as far as Toronto and Montreal, because they know their cats receive the very best in accommodation and service here at The Cat’s Meow.

Reviews

"My furry fellows (3) spent the Christmas hols with Cassandra and David at the Cats Meow. They couldn’t have been happier in their cat condo. We’d go back!"

Larissa Pickering

"Flexible service, spacious rooms and excellent care for our pets."

Ward Vanlaar

"Always great with our 2 furbabys."

Craig Brady

"Hate going away and worry about what to do with your kitties? The Cat's Meow has great, modern, clean boarding facilities and are treated like royalty, owners ensure that individual pet needs are met."

Melonie Sibbitt

"This is by far the best cattery that I have ever seen. Both Cassandra and David have a love for these animals and take care of them as if they are their own. Our 2 cats enjoy their time here and we wouldn't take them anywhere else. The Cat's Meow Inn is about 45mins away from where we live. But it's worth the drive!"

Sharyn Hillier

"Great location and facility and they take wonderful care of our cats. Our cats home away from home."

Laurie McDonald

"We've boarded our cats many times with Cassandra and David. We've boarded our cats many times with Cassandra and David. It's such a treat to deal with them, and the cats are well-cared-for. The facility is clean and attractive, with several options for housing the cats, including outdoor runs. I would definitely recommend the Cat's Meow Inn!"

Crawford Woodman

"Fantastic place to take your kitties when you are away on vacation or business. Lovely owners and a great facility (and beautiful location!) Very happy with Cat's Meow Inn!"

Robin Witt

"We've been using The Cats Meow for about three years. The "Boys" love it. David and Cassandra treat us and our cats like family. They make leaving our fur babies at "camp" easy so we can enjoy our vacation without worry. It's lucky we found them."

Peter Moffatt

"The Cat's Meow is aptly named. I especially appreciate all the thought that has gone into keeping the guests secure and comfortable. This place is like a cozy Fort Knox and I wouldn't take our cats anywhere else!"

Marcus Harvey

"Cassandra and David go above and beyond! Not only do they take great care of the cats, their facilities are fabulous, extremely clean and they go above and beyond to make our pets feel welcome and loved! I am a vet student and am very particular about my cats and The Cats Meow is the only place I would leave them knowing they will be well cared for and safe! The cats always come home healthy and happy! It is the equivalent of the cats Ritz! :D"

Kimberly Young

"David and Cassandra, you are such wonderful caring people that Barney always enjoys his stays with you in his "unit." The accommodations are excellent and we know that he is well looked after. Your premises are immaculate and the wood stove is so calming and relaxing for all your furry friends and people. Thank you for offering this wonderful service!" - Linda, George & Barney

Kathryn McLennan

"The Cat's Meow Inn near Perth is a lovely facility for cats only. The buildings are clean and very comfortable. Many of the units have windows and some even have sun porches or yards. As long-time customers we have been very happy with the services offered by the Cat's Meow Inn and we would recommend it highly."

John Cole

"I have taken my cats several times to the Cats Meow Inn and have always been very happy with the service. The cats are treated with love and kindness and always get very special care. Even brushing your cat! I would highly recommend The Cat's Meow Inn for boarding."

Maggie Foot

"Our 7 cats have stayed with Cassandra and David on many occasions and not only are our kitties happy but we have peace of mind knowing they are being treated with love as part of the family. The Cat's Meow Spa excels in care, attention and cleanliness! It is our cats' home away from home!"

Wendel Carrothers

"Our Tess has been so happy at her vacation home. She has been going to “camp” for 9 years, now and has never scolded us for leaving her for a month. After being treated like royalty by Cassandra and David why would she? The facility is first class! And yes, it’s worth the 45 minute drive during which Tess displays her fear and hatred of driving!!! Once she’s settled in she never thinks of us again.
Thank you, Cat’s Meow. You’re the best!"

Laura and Tom Belton

"We are so lucky we found this home away from home for our kitties. David and Cassandra run a wonderful service that far exceeds anything we've seen. All cats are housed in two lovely little buildings on their property (they look like little houses), complete with gorgeous tile floors, wood stoves and private outdoor runs for each kitty guest. The owners are warm and knowledgeable about cats, and they spend time with each of their furry guests, helping them to feel happy and comfortable. I can't recommend The Cat's Meow Inn enough!"

D.H. Nevins

"Our experiences for our pet at the Cat's Meow are first rate. Cassandra and David are obvious cat lovers. Our cat is always happy to go there as he quickly jumps into his 3 level unit which is clean and bright with a view to the outdoors. We always leave our pet at the Cat's Meow with the utmost of confidence."

Fred Fenwick

"Best place to leave your cat in complete luxury when you are away. It's also great for older cat's that take lots of medication as it's a very reasonable price per day to give pills. It's also one of the few places that gives insulin shots. My cat loves and and never wants to leave!"

L RS

"I can't rate The Cat's Meow high enough! Six stars? Seven stars? Immediately upon entering we were immersed in a warm, safe and caring environment. Our cat loved his time there (he came home happy as can be) and the Facebook photo updates were adorable. Cassandra and David even arranged for an alternate pickup time for us to avoid the ice storm. We will definitely be boarding our kitty there in the future!"
