Our brand new home is a spacious 3400 sq. facility complete with floor to ceiling windows. We practically took this building down to the studs! The budget certainly knocked more than a few of the nine lives off our construction budget. We had a vision to build a cat hotel to suit even the finickiest feline tastes in accommodations and entertainment. After 2 ½ years of research, cat napping, planning, dreaming, and then actually building all of that into one fantastic place we were finally able to move into our furrever home on June 21st of 2019! =^..^=
The Cats' Inn includes 30 cottages complete with window views of the beautiful rolling hills of Belmont and overlooking the east side of our new facility. The next upgrade after Kitty cottages are our fabulous Town houses for those felines that like more leg and lots of paw stretching room. Movin’ on up to the much sought-after Kitty Villas; single cat Villas as well as extra-Large Villas for cat families up to 5 cats. Most of the Villas have floor to ceiling windows with cat cubbies and cat perches. The other have skylights that turn into solar nightlights when it gets dark outside. For siblings we offer our brand-new Adjoining Suites with glass doors and our Double Suites. We kept our single suites to suit more moderate tastes and placed them in varying locations throughout our facility to accommodate each cat’s unique purrsonality. We also expanded our grooming services, having discovered that cats do in fact like baths! Our kitty spa guests love getting pampered and know how much their parents will love the way they feel and smell when they pick them up! We now offer a full range of services, including fur therapy baths, Lion cuts, Panty shaves, Tummy Shaves, soft paw mani/pedis and hot oil treatments. We raised the bar for gentle grooming, so much so that even other groomers recommend our services consistently. For those guests that opt to forgo spa treatments, we strive to ensure they leave us looking better than when they arrived. Daily brush-outs are a must!
What has made the kitties meow with joy? Our six fabulous playrooms! Imagine a Zen facility just for cats! And in fact, we do have Zen playroom! It’s designed to help your most prizes feline find his/her center in peace. At The Cats’ Inn every playroom is purrrfectly designed to entertain and suit kitties of all ages and purrrrsonality types; we have a Tropical playroom, an Ancient Egyptian playroom, a Carnival playroom, The Loft, The Boat Dock room and of course The Zen. Our specially themed playrooms include plenty of cat structures with cubbies to lounge in and climbing perches for kitties that prefer to be up high. For those that prefer lower grounds our comfy window perches and plush princess beds are popular for sunbathing on and the cats looove watching the squirrels running around outside and soaking up all the sunshine through our double paned tempered and temperature resistant windows. At The Cats’ Inn all cats are allowed out anywhere between 3 to 6 hours per day, and all receive extra cuddle time and plenty of TLC. We are all true cat lovers here.
Of course we didn’t skimp on the most state of the art ventilation system; a one-ton, commercial grade rooftop HVAC unit which will give our kitties the absolute best in exhaust ventilation that vastly improves the air quality and overall health for everyone inside the building – no bad air circulation just fresh air – expensive but the cats are worth it! The foundation itself is seismically retrofitted for more structural re-enforcement and we also earthquake proofed our new home. We completely replaced the electrical system and raised the roof for higher ceilings to create higher verticals for all of the spacious villas for your favorite little furballs complete with a climbing gym! The building is fully fire sprinklered and the Belmont Fire Station is on same block. We are 15 minutes from SFO, 35 mins to San Jose airport and 45 mins away from Oakland airport.
WE'VE COME A LONG WAY
When we opened our doors in 1995, The Cats’ Inn was just a tiny little Inn across the hall from where we are today. Since then we have grown our business by building trust. We take our responsibilities seriously and understand fully what it means to be the cats’ voices. In fact, one mantra we carry close to our hearts says: “Do the right thing even when no one is looking.” This sign hangs front and center at our Inn and we all know the importance and sacredness of doing right by all the cats that we are fortunate enough to be able to spend so much of our days with.
We had a dream, a vision to be able to care for cats in an intimate and specialized way. We wanted to make sure every one of our feline friends felt safe and secure in a place that was suited for all different types of temperaments and personalities, and to create a home environment comfortable for all of our feline friends. At The Cats’ Inn we pride ourselves on being your cat’s home away from home, caring for each individual cat as if they were our own. Although we are not the Ritz Carlton for cats, we have always liked to think of ourselves as the B & B they fall in love with.
In 2002 we moved across the hall into a larger space and in 2010 we expanded once again. In the process, we took the opportunity to add a state-of-the-art ventilation system similar to those used in hospitals (far exceeding vet standards), and upgraded and expanded the cats suites and front office to make even our human friends feel more welcome. That space served us well all the way up until 2019 when we moved across the street to our current state of the art dream facility that you see in front of you today.
