Feline Lodging

We offer all of our feline guests a private dwelling equipped with a litter box, stainless steel food and water bowls, and a fleece cuddle bed. We clean and sanitize each unit daily. All bowls and beds are washed and litter boxes are scrubbed, deodorized and filled with fresh litter each morning. During this time, our staff lets our guests out individually to explore our atrium, get exercise and have fun socializing.


We offer two different style lodgings for our feline visitors, our cozy apartments or luxury three-story condos. The unit best suited for your cat will depend on his or her activity level as well as their individual needs.


Note - We ask that all cats are brought into the facility in a carrier labeled with your name and your pet's name.


The Apartments

To keep cats safe and secure, our apartment units have single level private dens. Every apartment is fully furnished with food and water dishes, a litter box and a sleeping niche. You are always welcome to bring your pet’s favorite items from home to make them comfortable during their stay. We provide bedding and toys for all guests.


Our relaxing and comfortable atrium is home to our feline apartments. Our atrium is also a safe area for your cat to explore and play during their exercise time. We have decorated and accessorized it with our feline guests in mind. We designed our atrium with several floor to ceiling windows to provide our guests with a view of our local wildlife.


We have various scratching posts, carpeted forms and toys for climbing, exercising claws, scratching, or just relaxing and snoozing in the sun. We provide soft, peaceful music to create a relaxing atmosphere.

Our feline facility is the right place for your cat to feel at home while you’re away.

Candlewick provides a quiet &

relaxing getaway, perfect for

every feline personality.





Administration of Medication

Each medication per day


Additional Activities



Families with Multiple Felines

Feline Cuisine

For all cats in our care, we keep dry kibble (Purina) down at all times. For a special treat, we serve our guests mouth-watering moist food for dinner. We stock a variety of flavors such as chicken, seafood and liver. The food is not only delicious, but safe and gentle on your cat’s digestive system. We recommend you provide your cat’s food from home if they are a picky eater, have a sensitive stomach or are on a prescription or special diet. Food supplied by pet owners is stored and prepared individually for each pet. For these reasons there is a dollar a day fee. If you chose to bring your pet's food from home, please be sure to bring enough for their entire stay.

Even though cats tend to be independent and not particularly sociable with other felines, there are families with multiple cats that are inseparable. For these cats, rooming together is an option.  We do recommend that there are no more than two felines per enclosure as cats do enjoy more personal space.

Medications and Supplements

Additional Activities

Our trained and experienced staff will administer prescription medications and supplements to your pet. If your pet must take daily medication, we recommend bringing the medication in its original bottle versus a pill case or plastic bag. If this is not possible, drug name and dosage is sufficient. There is a charge of one dollar per day for each medication for your pet, no matter how many doses are to be given during a day. To better care for your pet, we ask that you make us aware of your pet’s medical history during check-in.

Even though most cats will be happy and content relaxing in their den and getting exercise in our atrium during den cleaning, we offer feline play times during the day for those that are more active, enjoy having company or are a bit spoiled.  Each playtime of personal interaction with one of our playtime coordinators is 20 minutes.  Depending on your cat's likes or dislikes, a playtime session could include anything from a pleasant chin rub, back scratch or a therapeutic brushing to a full blown mouse and string chase. Whether our staff is able to facilitate play, or just offer a warm lap accompanied by peaceful conversation, your cat is sure to take pleasure and comfort in these attention receiving activities.

The Condos

You can put your pet in the lap of luxury in a cat condominium. Your feline companions deserve to be pampered and spoiled and that is why we offer three story units that are quiet, spacious and comfortable for your cat. Travel is made easy by ramps between the levels. Food and water dishes, sleeping niches and a litter box occupy each floor. While we provide bedding and toys, you are always welcome to bring favorite items from home.


We provide soft, peaceful music to create a relaxing atmosphere.   We have various scratching posts, carpeted forms and toys for climbing, exercising claws, scratching, or just relaxing and snoozing in the sun.  Your cat will feel like he’s vacationing in paradise. We have a limited number of these units, so we advise they be reserved ahead of time.
