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 25 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, Karina, and Autistic Sidekick’s Jaden and Rob who visits twice a week through a school co-op program.
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.
Karina, and Jaden
We now have two full time staff Monday to Friday. Karina and Holli work together and side kick, Jaden and Ellie, with with us. Ellie is Karina’s daughter who occasionally curls up on the couch to cuddle the cats. Jaden worked with us last year through a program at Capilano as co-op student. He 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.
