Meet Some Of Our Guests

CARMIE AND TIKKI

“Our cats, Carmie and Tikki, are our family and when we go away, we want them looked after like family.
And that is exactly what the Cat Utopia family of caregivers does: Cuddles, hugs, loving attention, clean bright spaces — and NO CAGES! The cats feel comfortable, relaxed and settled; as if they’ve found their extended family in another home. When they return to us, they are happy and unstressed. We feel lucky to have found the great cat lovers at Cat Utopia.”

KONA

“I just wanted to say thank you again for taking such good care of Kona. He was back to his regular routine within hours of being home. In the past, boarding has been extremely stressful for him and it has sometime taken weeks for him to become himself again. You and your boarding facility are amazing and I wish we had found you sooner.
Thanks again,”

Jennifer and Kona

MITTENS AND DOGG

“Just a quick note to say thanks for looking after Mittens and Dogg while we were away. They came home looking sooooo healthy and happy! Made us think back to the absolute disaster we had several years back and count our blessings for the level of care and attention that you provide. Thanks as well for going the ‘extra mile’ to give Dogg the rest of her medicine. Sometimes we wonder which home they enjoy the most!”

PATITA, SASSY AND MAVERICK

“To appreciate our experience with Cat Utopia, you first need to appreciate how we feel about our three cats. Patita, Sassy and Maverick are far more than pets, these three characters have lived with us in three different countries, they are our companions and an integral part of our family unit.

Therefore when the time came to plan for their immigration from UK to Canada, we really needed to find a facility that would treat ‘the kids’ as well as we do. After many weeks of research, phone calls and e-mails, all the indications were that Cat Utopia was the best facility for boarding cats in the Vancouver area.

I made contact with Cathy and was immediately struck by how helpful and understanding she was. Cathy has many, many years of experience with cats and with their international travels. Her advice was invaluable and really helped remove a huge concern about the welfare of our cats during what was already a stressful time.

We decided to entrust Cathy with our cats and it was the best decision that we could have made. The cats arrived two weeks before we did; Cathy personally collected them from the airport and kept us regularly updated throughout the entire process.

We arrived in Vancouver and rushed off for a first visit. We were immediately impressed by the Cat Utopia set up. The facilities and staff are very impressive. Our ‘three musketeers’ were totally relaxed and looked completely at home in their suite.

The suite they were accommodated in was heated, it had lovely big windows and a completely secured outside enclosure to enable them to safely get some fresh Canadian air.

We visited regularly after that and always found the suite clean and the cats completely relaxed and very happy.

We were thrilled by how good the cats looked when we were finally able to move them into our home; it was clearly a great experience for them and for us. We now drop off the three of them with Cathy whenever we have to go away. The peace of mind we enjoy when leaving ‘the kids’ with Cathy is priceless.

Thank you Cathy, and to the wonderful staff at Cat Utopia. You are truly amazing cat people.

~Martin and Valentina and Sassy, Patita and Maverick
