Preparing Your Cat for Hotel Stay

Preparing Your Cat for Hotel Stay

At Lazy Cat Hotel in Phuket, we understand that leaving your cat with us for the first time can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. To help make your cat's first hotel stay comfortable and stress-free, we've put together a guide on how to best prepare your feline companion.

Familiarizing Your Cat with New Environments:

  1. Start with Short Absences: Before boarding, accustom your cat to short periods alone to ease the transition.
  2. Visit the Cat Hotel in Advance: If possible, visit the cat hotel with your cat so they can become familiar with the new environment.
  3. Familiar Items: Bring along familiar items like their bed, toy, or blanket to provide comfort and a sense of security.

Addressing Cat Anxiety:

  1. Calming Products: Consider using feline pheromone sprays or diffusers to help calm your cat.
  2. Talk to Your Vet: If your cat is prone to anxiety, discuss with your vet about possible solutions or medications to ease their stress.

Health and Safety Measures:

  1. Up-to-Date Vaccinations: Ensure your cat is up-to-date on all vaccinations. This is not only for their safety but also a requirement at most pet hotels.
  2. Medical Information: Provide the hotel with your cat’s medical history and any necessary medications.

Dietary Considerations:

  1. Consistent Diet: Stick to their regular diet to avoid digestive issues. Provide the cat hotel with detailed feeding instructions.
  2. Special Dietary Needs: Inform the cat hotel of any special dietary requirements or allergies.

Preparing for the Stay:

  1. Pack Essentials: Pack all the necessities your cat will need, including food, medication, and favorite toys.
  2. Emergency Contact Information: Leave your contact information and an emergency contact with the hotel staff.

Day of the Stay:

  1. Stay Calm: Cats can pick up on your emotions, so try to remain calm and positive during the drop-off.
  2. Quick Goodbyes: Prolonged farewells can increase anxiety, so it’s best to make the goodbye quick and reassuring.
