Check out our Facebook page for daily pictures, updates, and videos of hotel happenings.
Holli’s cat hotel is in the whole first floor of her 3000 sq foot house. It is separate from her living space above.
Previous to 2015, Holli was a Registered Massage Therapist Osteopath for 20 years with two cats, and a rehab yoga teacher with her own studio in kits for 5 years. Holli has taken cat disease control and animal first aid with her close Vet friend, Dr Cathy Kurtz, and regularly calls and meets with Cathy to learn more. Our approach to the cats is loving and calm, she never expect a cat to move out of its comfort zone until they are ready. They can also move themselves to any of the 5 rooms on the lower level of the house as they desire. We spend extra time with first time cats who may be scared or nervous, to help them to integrate into the hotel.
Holli has taken many courses for massage, Aromatherapy, reflexology, Thai massage, osteopathy, infant massage (furless cats), energy healing, Reiki and many more including just finishing her fifth ten day silent meditation retreat.
Mature help: Unlike commercial companies, we hire only mature adult help. It’s not about profit, it’s about your cats needs. Your cats are in good hands with Holli, Melanie Jaden and Ana.
Relaxing calm music, aquarium or bird videos are played day and night to keep the cats relaxed and serene. Each room has feather throwers, electronic cat toys/lasers that continue to move when she leaves and plenty of toys. Please see cat integration for more on how we integrate the cats.
Melanie – Entrepreneur, animal lover and healer, Mom. (bio energy healer).
Bio coming soon. Melanie will work part to full time assisting with Ana and Jaden when Holli can’t.
Ana and Jaden
We now have two full time staff Monday to Friday. Ana and Jaden worked with us last year through a program at Capilano as co-op students and they proved to provide great care and love for the cats. Jaden is a beautiful highly functioning autistic soul who was hired simply to go around for 4 hours a day, two or three days a week, to give the cats love and attention. He feels so deeply for them. Ana Works three to five full days with me and or Melanie. We are working on her being more independent to cover the occasional day off for more, but mostly we will be working together and in the fall she plans on attending another program at Capilano University to become a cook. She is beautiful and insightful as well and feels as deeply for the cats as she cares for them.
