Dear Cat Parents,

You deserve the exemplary, loving cat care which has been our service hallmark for 16 years.

To recruit, educate and retain the best Co-Workers and be competitive for top talent, we must compensate beyond the new California Minimum Wage.  Our outstanding Co-Workers are matriculating in the sciences and demonstrate the requisite attention to detailed observations, application of scientific methodologies, punctuality and independence of thought required to provide premium care for your kitties and guarantee your peace of mind.  Other major cost categories have increased as well. 

To sustain our viable service business, open 7 days, we face extreme cost pressures imposed by the State of CA and Santa Barbara commercial property owners:

 ↑   Wages:  Minimum Wage up 25% since 2014 and legislated to increase an additional 50% by 2022.

    Rent:  the greatest increase in our 16 years in business

    Workers’ Compensation Insurance:  up 100%

 ↑   Healthcare Insurance:  up 50%

    Premium eco-conscious litter:  up 100%

    Water:  up 50% despite Santa Barbara’s award-winning conservation

    Cat food prices:  up 20% 

We recognize that all of us are facing escalating costs but the majority of this business’ expenses are beyond our control.  As a result we must increase our boarding and special services prices to sustain our service levels.   Effective July 1, 2016, our boarding prices (click here) and "special services" prices (click here) will increase but with continued discounts for multiple cats and extended stays.

Please call the front desk for details at 805.563.9999.


There is much debate in the animal care industry about the benefits and/or dangers of a raw food diet.  In keeping with the recommendations of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), and the American College of Veterinary Nutritionists (ACVN), we do not recommend and will not serve raw foods to our own cats or to boarding cats.  Click here for more information.
