A gentle place.

Casco Gold and silver kennels

Luxury Pied-à-terre

Temperature controlled, customizable lighting, partial frosted glass fronts and sound/reflection dampening interior. Including an oxygen therapy unit for those respiratory cases. Red light is utilized during recovery as cats are less sensitive to red light and daylight settings allow us to evaluate cats without disturbing them. Blue UVA light causes organic materials to fluoresce, improving cleaning between patients, Heated kennel floors create a cozy place to recover and rest.

Calming Ambiance

We know that certain colors, smells and sounds are disturbing for cats due to their unique senses. Calming pheromone diffusers are placed throughout Zen Cat. Hospital kennels are raised up to cater to cats love of vertical spaces. Hiding spots and perches abound. Limited use of reflective surfaces and the color white (which appears fluorescent to cats). Cat-centric music in every room. Every effort is made to help owners feel relaxed because this helps the cats relax too.

Feline-specific Comforts

Exams are done in a living room like environment with soft lighting, stimulating window views, and cortisol reducing music. All equipment has been specifically chosen to be quieter, smaller and more accurate for cats. Warmth and comfort at every step by utilizing towel warmers, fluffy fleeces, and enveloping cat beds. Strong smells are even kept to an absolute minimum through scent reduced product choices and decreased use of rubbing alcohol for lab sample collections.

the soul of zen cat

Zen Cat was born from a desire to provide thorough lifelong care for the feline’s that I feel so privileged to spend my days with, along with the urge to change the way cat owners experience veterinary medicine. Zen Cat Clinic is a reflection of positive warm energy aimed to heal, nurture and educate.

In order to create this vision, it is vital that Zen Cat have a team of passionate, thriving, talented cat lovers who each contribute their unique skills and ideas to the perfection of Zen Cat Clinic. I believe that a genuinely cohesive and happy team of healers is not lost on our clients and their cats.
