How old does a cat have to be to board?
Minimum Age Requirements for Cats The minimum age requirement for cats at most kennels is the same as it is for dogs. They require cats to be at least 12 to 17 weeks (4 months) old. Again, this age reflects the age the cats generally are once they have received all of their necessary shots.
How much should you pay a friend to cat sit?
Usually, you will pay about 60-70% of what you would pay a local professional service. This equals about $13 – $16 per 15-minute drop-in visit, and $18 – $24.50 per 45 – 60 minute visit. If your hobby sitter provides overnights, you should expect to pay between $50 – $70, plus the cost of a midday walk.

Who can watch my dog for a month?
If there’s no one close to you who can take care of your dog for as long as a month, a pet sitter is another comfortable alternative to a kennel. You can find a sitter by searching professional pet care websites, house care sites or classifieds — or ask your veterinarian for professional recommendations.
How long can I board my dog?
We find that well-socialized dogs do enjoy their stay of up to 30 days. Still, we don’t recommend stays of longer than a month. If you feel you must board your dog for 30 days or more, discuss your needs with your boarding kennel.
