Pampered Pets exhibits exceptionally high standards of both service and hospitality when caring for all of our guests. We recognize the specific needs of the cats boarding with us and have designed individual accommodations to make your kitty’s stay as stress free and enjoyable as possible. Feline guests are treated to condo suites located in a quiet and calm area, away from our canine guests.

Each private suite includes a separate litter box area, comfy resting space with plush beds and a raised perch. You are more than welcome to bring items from home that you think would provide comfort for your cat: small beds or blankets, favorite toys, or treats.

The cattery area at Pampered Pets has natural lighting and state-of-the-art air-exchange system ensuring the healthiest environment for your cat. A crinkle tunnel, multi-level cat tower, and a variety of cat-approved toys are available for your cat to enjoy.

We attend to the specific needs of each cat that boards with us and have designed individual accommodations to make your kitty’s stay as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Our hands-on team of affectionate cat lovers recognizes that each cat has their own personality and individual needs, and you can be assured your cat will have plenty of loving attention during their stay. We offer an array of activities to suit even the finickiest feline. Give us a call while your cat is lodging with us – we’re always happy to give you an update about how they’re doing.

Reservations can be made online using the buttons below or by phone 434-293-7387.

Most cats do very well on our cat food, but if they require a special diet, you should make arrangements to bring in their own cat food from home.
If your pet should require medical attention while in our care, our customary procedure is to contact you first. If we cannot reach you, we will contact your veterinarian. If your veterinarian’s office is closed, we will contact one of the local emergency veterinarians. Our caring staff can administer any injections, oral or topical medications your cat may require during their visit.
The health and safety of each of our guests is our top priority. All feline guests must have current vaccinations for both Rabies and Distemper. Documentation from a veterinarian is required for each of our guests before admittance can be allowed. Titers will also be accepted with proper documentation.
Sure, we understand that some of our guests may have special needs. (We have pets, too!) Please feel free to discuss any special requirements with us when you make your reservation and we will do everything in our power to make sure your pet’s special needs are met. We are happy to attend to your pet with: medications, supplements, special meal preparation, extra feeding times, food or treats from home, special handling care, daily brushing and/or additional medical care. Just ask!
Of course, just let us know when you book the appointment and we will be happy to reserve at spot in our salon.
Yes! We provide lodging for a variety of pocket pets, including rabbits, birds, sugar gliders, fish and turtles. You do need to bring their enclosure from home and any special food they require. We cannot lodge snakes or ferrets.
