Fear Free Boarding for Cats

Boarding your cat can be a delicate business. Often, our feline friends are sensitive to change or uncomfortable in a traditional boarding kennel, where unfamiliar smells and noises may cause stress.

When you board your cat at Walnut Street Animal Hospital, you can pack your bags and leave your worries behind! Because we know cats, we offer an alternative to traditional options. You can drop off or pick up 7 days a week with no additional fees! Our new facility in Cary offers a boarding experience that is sensitive to the unique needs of cats.

We designed our facility with the needs of cats in mind. Your cat will love the quiet, peaceful atmosphere in his or her private, multi-tiered condo. Boarders are fed a highly digestible diet, and we provide separate litter pans in each of the quarters.

The facility is climate controlled with reliable heating and cooling systems and safeguarded by our advanced security systems, including smoke detectors, heat detectors, and a fire alarm with sprinklers. Our friendly pet care professionals strive to make your cat feel at home. You are welcome to send a favorite and familiar item with your pet as well.

While your cat is with us, you may want to schedule other services such as:

  1. Grooming
  2. Dental care
  3. Check-ups

We are happy to attend to a variety of your pet’s needs while he or she is with us, so please let us know how we can serve you when you contact our boarding facility.

  • "Dr. K and his staff are wonderful people to take care of you and your pets needs. I have taken my dogs to Dr. K for several years and couldn't be more happy with the excellent care and compassion he provides to each of his patients. He explains things very thoroughly and never rushes you in and out. He truly strives to provide quality care. He is very honest in his professional advice. I have tried several veterinarians in the Triangle area and none come close to matching the whole package that you receive when you partner with Dr. K to take care of your babies. I drive from Durham for Dr. K to see my dogs. Please stop by Walnut Street Animal Hospital and see for yourself what makes this animal hospital better than the others. You will make a friend for life in yours and your animals lives."
