When you board at Evergreen Cat Lodge, your cat will stay in one of our 32 suites and will be lovingly cared for by Susan & Mike Nocket, owners of the Lodge. If you are lucky enough to be a multiple cat family, your 2nd and 3rd cats may share the suite for a slight additional fee. However, only cats from the same owner are permitted to share a suite. Your cats will never come in physical contact with other boarders. Be sure to check out the picture gallery on the About The Lodge page to see some of our suites. We are committed to providing the best cat boarding service available in the Denver area.

Prior to boarding, we will require verification that your cat has received the required immunizations as detailed in the Policies & Forms section. Upon arrival, every boarder is given a quick examination to ensure that there are no visible health issues - E.g. fleas, respiratory infection or ring worm. If we find that nails need clipping we will clip them at no charge. You will be asked to fill out and sign our Boarding Agreement. Better yet, download the Boarding Agreement in advance and bring it with you.

After check-in, you will accompany your cat to its private suite. We notice that our guests adjust much faster to their new surroundings if their owners are able to spend some time helping them settle in. We also encourage you to bring some things from home. Your cat will appreciate a familiar toy or two, maybe a scratching post, and many cats are comforted by one of your worn shirts (they love your scent). You should also bring along a cat brush - we don't think it's hygienic to share a brush among our boarders, so if you want us to casually brush your loved ones you need to supply a brush. There's no charge for brushing, but please note that this is casual brushing - not a professional grooming that removes matted hair.

Once your cat has settled in and you've said goodbye, rest assured that you have left them in good hands. We make a point to spend a little extra time with new arrivals to help them feel safe in their surroundings. You'll notice that every suite has a comfortable place to sit. This isn't just for the cats. It's a place for us to sit and spend time visiting with our guests. During its stay, we try our best to keep your cat on its regular schedule. When you fill in the Boarding Agreement, you tell us about your cats feeding schedule - once, twice, three times a day or free feeding - wet or dry food. We have premium cat food available at no charge, but we encourage you to supply enough of your cat's regular food to last for the stay. It's actually easier for us to feed all of our guests the same food, but we think it's more important to keep each boarder on its regular diet. A change of diet can cause problems in even the healthiest of cats.

We love all cats and welcome special needs guests. We inquire on the Boarding Agreement about any medications that your cat may be taking. We will administer medications at no additional charge. We may also perform other procedures, on a case-by-case basis, after consulting with your veterinarian.

We also clean the litter and change the water at least twice a day.

It's been our experience that this style of cat boarding is well tolerated by even the most shy and timid of cats. We do our best to ensure that each and every boarding experience is a positive one for both pet and owner.

We hope to see you soon at Denver's premier cat-only boarding facility!

2-Room Suites

Many of our suites are joined by cat doors to neighboring suites. This allows you to rent both rooms and create a 2-room suite for large families or very lucky cats.

 

Room Change During Stay

If your desired suite is only available for part of your cat's stay and you would like to switch rooms during the stay, there will be a $20 room change fee.

 

How we Count Days

We count days like a hotel. You will be charged for the day of check-in regardless of when you check in. There is no charge for the day of check-out providing you pick up your boarders before noon. If you check out between noon and 5pm, you will be charged for a half day. If you check out after 5pm, you will be charged for a whole day.

 

Payment

We accept cash, checks and credit cards. Boarding fees are payable 50% at check-in and 50% at pick-up. For holiday periods we require a $100 non-refundable depostit at the time of booking. For first time boarders we require a $50 non-refundable deposit (which will apply towards your boarding fee). There are also minimum stay requirements for most holiday periods. Please call for details.

 

Cat Taxi Service

The charge for cat taxi service is $1/mile round trip distance with a $20 minimum. So if you live 15 miles from the cat lodge the fee to pick up your cat would be $30.

Immunizations

We require assurance that all boarders are current on their FVRCP and rabies immunizations prior to their being accepted for boarding. Your vet can provide you with a copy of the vaccination records to bring with you when you drop off, or you can ask your vet to fax or email them directly to us.

 

Hours of Operation

You may drop off or pick up your cat 6 days a week. We do not accept drop offs or pick ups on Tuesdays. We are of course here to care for our boarders 7 days a week.

 

Rather than to operate with fixed hours as many boarding facilities do, we operate by appointment only. We think this gives our clients the most flexibility in arranging drop-off and pick-up times. We accept drop offs and pick ups between the hours of 8AM and 9PM. The good news is, that with this approach, you will not be charged for "after hours" drop-off as long as you inform us in advance what time you will stop by. The caution is, if you don't schedule a drop-off or pick-up time, or if you show up at a different time than the appointment, we may not be available to serve you. It's a simple agreement - We will accommodate your schedule, whatever it is. All we require in return is that you inform us in advance by making an appointment.

 

Payment

We accept cash, checks and credit cards. Boarding fees are payable 50% at check-in and 50% at pick-up. For holiday periods we require a $100 non-refundable deposit at the time of booking (which will apply towards your baording fee). For first time boarders we require a $50 non-refundable deposit (which will apply towards your boarding fee). There are also minimum stay requirements for most holiday periods and a 3-day minimum at all times. Please call for details.

 

Medication

We will administer most medications to our boarders at no additional cost. PLEASE NOTE: State regulations require that all prescription medications be administered per veterinarian's instructions. Medications are required to be in the container issued by the veterinarian or pharmacy and the label must include client's name/pet name, dosage, drug name, veterinarian name and date issued.

 

Care of Sick Boarders - Agreement for Veterinary Services

We hope it never happens, but if one of our boarders appears ill we will seek veterinarian attention. We will attempt to contact you using the contact information you provided at check-in. If we are unable to contact you, we will try the emergency contact you provided. By signing the Boarding Agreement, you have agreed to pay for any necessary veterinarian services. We will attempt to utilize your regular veterinarian if practical, otherwise we will utilize one of the local vets that we have a strong relationship with. If neither you nor your emergency contact can be reached, you have authorized us to seek veterinary care at our discretion and you agree to pay any associated costs.

 

Flea Free Environment

We maintain a flea free environment. Our clients expect it and our boarders deserve it. If, during our check-in examination or at a later time, we observe evidence of fleas on your cat, we will provide your cat with a flea treatment and take steps to eliminate any fleas from its boarding suite. You will be charged an additional fee for this service.

Cat Taxi

While we prefer that owners drop off their cats in person so they can spend some time helping them acclimate to their new surroundings, sometimes this just isn't in the cards. We know how hectic it can be getting ready to leave on vacation. Sometimes owners find themselves in an emergency situation and need to board their cat. Whatever the reason, if we can assist you by picking-up or dropping-off your cat we will do our best to accommodate. The greater the advanced notice you give us, the more likely it is that we will be able to meet your needs. Last minute requests are difficult to fulfill as we have many obligations here at the lodge.

Our rate for pick-up or drop-off is $1.00/mile based on round trip mileage. The minimum charge for cat taxi service is $20.
