Cat Nap Inn opened its doors in November of 1999. This was a dream come true as Kolleen Fox spent three years researching, planning, purchasing property and navigating the legal and permit process to become one of the first in Washington State to specialize in the unique area of cat-only boarding. Brenna Walker purchased the business in 2019 and has continued to operate it with the same care and integrity our clients have come to rely on.

It was of great importance to have the facility custom designed with the guests’ health, comfort and safety as priorities. Many special features were included such as the HEPA air filtration system, a separate air ventilation system for each suite to ensure guests do not share air with one another, air conditioning, and double-entry doors as an extra safety precaution.

We ADORE cats and also cat people! We strive to build a relationship with both our four legged guests and their parents. Personalized care is our specialty! We have chosen to remain small over the years which allows us to give individualized love and attention to our guests.

Cat Nap Inn has been featured in many regional and national publications and programs over the years. In the summer of 2017, Cat Nap Inn was featured in both The Costco Connection and Bellingham Alive.  Cat Fancy awarded Cat Nap Inn one of the top 45 destinations for your cat and Seattle’s KING 5 Evening Magazine did a special feature on us and our facility.

It is of the utmost importance to Cat Nap Inn to give back to the community. We regularly support local animal adoption and rescue organizations such as Whatcom Humane Society, Whatcom Education Spay & Neuter Impact Program, CASA, and The Humane Society of Skagit Valley.

We are open by prearranged appointment to maintain a relaxed and caring atmosphere. Please schedule an appointment within the time frame of our appointment hours. Check out our virtual tour.

Cat Nap Inn is a proud member of the International Boarding and Pet Services Association!
