The catalyst for the creation of the Cat Nap Inn

The Cat Nap Inn was born out of necessity as Dr. Horvat discovered that cat owners needed a safe place where they could take their cats when away for an extended period of time. It was about 20 years ago when Dr. Horvat examined a cat, which was flat out and non-responsive. The cat had been at a kennel and when the boarding facility dropped the cat off Dr. Horvat was told, “We don’t know what is wrong. We gave her insulin every day and this morning she is like this.” The cat had not been eating as well as normal during the first days at the kennel, which is a common situation when a cat’s routine is changed.
The problem was that the kennel staff did not understand how to adapt the medication for this situation and therefore the cat received an overdose of insulin. Happily after a couple days in the hospital and on iv dextrose, the cat was back to her normal self. This was the catalyst for the creation of the Cat Nap Inn. Dr. Horvat knew cats do not like change in routine; particularly the fragile ones. Even with  the busyness of the hospital, she knew this wouldn’t help the cats to settle. So, upstairs and away from the hospital’s hustle and bustle, she had a contractor build small housing rooms, each with their own climbing posts and hiding boxes. For the older cats, who really do not climb anymore, she had small apartments built with sleeping lofts. 


The cats who come stay at the Fraser Valley Animal Hospital’s Cat Nap Inn are taken care of by our well trained kennel staff. Regardless of medical status or unique individual needs. 

Few things about our facility:

  • We ask each owner to bring their cat’s own food & medications; cats do not like routine change
  • Vaccinations are recommended and flea control is required to keep our facility parasite and disease free
  • Each day appetite and daily litter box usage is monitored so we can keep track of any changes. 
  • Each cat is checked on and medicated by our technician and any concerns are always brought to the attention of the doctor. 
  • Weekly weigh in's to ensure they are doing well. 
  • Additional services can be provided - nail trims, wellness exams, blood work, surgical services (spay/neuter) etc.

But it is not all business in the Cat Nap Inn! 

  • Each cat is given individual play time in the center court area (indoor only) and are given their own catnip mouse. 
  • As well classical music is played throughout the boarding facility as studies have shown that classical music decreases stress in cats.
  • Grooming care will be provided as required/requested
