Cat is also known as 'Gato' in Portuguese and Spanish. While in Malay and Indonesian, Cat is called as 'Kucing'. Previously, most people send their cats to cat boarding facilities which houses cats in steel or plastic cages with no common social space resulting in a rather depressing environment. Some even sent their cats to veterinary facilities without realizing most veterinary boarding facilities are of the old-fashioned, cold, and sterile type. Because medical and surgical cases are of higher priority in veterinary hospitals, their cats are likely to be shortchanged on attention and care. Worst still, their cats are likely to be infected with diseases by other cats which are sick.
PetBacker’s boarding for cats, gato and kucing differs from normal cat boarding facilities as it is run by individual cat lovers who love entertaining cats in their homes. Often those offering this service have cats of their own so it adds a social element while providing a more 'homely' boarding environment. More personal attention is given to your cat which reduces the stress of being in a new environment with unfamiliar human companions.
Pricing for these cat boarding alternatives may vary depending on the amenities and level of service chosen by pet parents and value-added options provided by the cat sitter.
