Happy Cats Retreat is a well-thought-out resort for felines, with loving care from its owner. The condos have separate spaces for food and litter box, plus other space for lounging and holes to crawl through. For the condos with windows, there's a bird feeder installed outside each one. We liked it, our cat loved it, and we'll be booking as far in advance as possible to get space the next time we need it. HIGHLY recommended.
Extremely friendly owners, fast and efficient check in while also keeping up pleasantries and genuine kindness and a family feel both then and at checkout! When I went to pick up my cat after just a week, she hardly wanted to leave at all. She brushed up all along Douglas and looked like she wanted to stay with the other cats she met there. 1000% plan on bringing her back here next time we can’t take her with us. For a cat as asocial as mine to love a place, the other animals, and the people this much—it speaks volumes to the care and love they put in at Happy Cats Retreat :) Highly highly recommend bringing your cat here next time you go out of town!
Douglas is the man! Even if it's out of the way, I recommend for people to check this place out. He genuinely cares for the cats, letting them have ample play time and space. I had no worries leaving my cat with him, and will be recommending him to friends.
Happy Cats is a nice, very clean facility. It's right to be called a "retreat", instead of a kennel, because the cat accommodations are very nice. Each cat has a suite with perches and views. But, what makes it really special is the owner (Douglas). My rapidly aging mother needed a temporary home for her cat. Douglas cared for her cat over an extended period and took a warm interest in my mother's health, as well. On several occasions, he opened his doors just so that she could spend 1:1 time with her companion. I can't thank Douglas enough and Happy Cats deserves the highest recommendation possible.
My cat Neville stayed here for a week when I had to make an emergency trip. He received lots of attention and love, the picture updates were wonderful, and I feel so lucky that he was able to get such great care on such short notice. We’re home now and he is lounging around and playing as if he never left, which is a sure sign that he was well taken care of. :) We will be back!
