About Us

Santa Fe Cats was established over 30 years ago and has maintained the reputation of being the premier pet hotel for cats, pocket pets and birds. We have a both indoor only and 16 secure “catio suites” for your felines. The “catio suites” are available on a first come basis and cannot be guaranteed. Our mission and goal has always stayed the same: take care of our customers’ pets like they’re our own! Our trained, caring staff will play with and love your cats almost the same as you do. We routinely play and cuddle your cat(s) to make sure that they’re not just getting love, but they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Your cat(s) will enjoy a quiet, bark-free environment. We play soft music throughout the day. The catios have remote-controlled awnings and our indoor spaces are climate controlled. Our spacious double suites average 3ft x 3ft x 7ft with shelves and a window to look out. We also offer two family suites that can accommodate up to 4 cats or provide more space for larger cats such as Maine Coons.

For over ten years, the upper level of Santa Fe Cats has served as a shelter for Felines & Friends where, by appointment, potential adopters can spend time with cats waiting for their “forever homes”. If you need help with a rescue situation please DO NOT come to SFC. The staff are not authorized or trained to handle emergency scenarios.

What A Great Place For Cats

The owners really understand a cat’s needs and provide a great place for them. From window seats to access to their own enclosed outside area, SF Cats provides everything a cat needs in a home away from home. I will always board my cat here knowing she will be taken care of by loving, compassionate cat people. Highly recommended!– James K. – Santa Fe, NM

Best Cat Boarding Kennel In New Mexico

I have been boarding my cats at Santa Fe Cats for over 10 years. It’s the one place I can leave them when I travel – and not worry about them. I have 5 cats, and it’s difficult boarding them in appropriate accommodations, but they always manage to make the kitties happy and safe. The owners are wonderful, true blue cat people who treat my fur babies to their own vacations. They also have indoor/outdoor enclosures to give your kitties a real treat! If you are looking for a kitty boarding kennel, you are looking at the best place in New Mexico!– Cyd S. Pecos, NM

Highly recommended!

My cat goes here about 4 times a year for the last 3 years and he loves it. It is nice and quiet for kitties. They have indoor/outdoor kennels for each cat. Everyone is friendly that works there.– Tami M. Santa Fe, NM

My cat loves this company!

We’ve been using Santa Fe Cats since 2007 and our cat just loves them!

Indoor/Outdoor play areas

This place not only has great staff, but also has both indoor and outdoor play areas where my cats can be safe and secure.

This cat facility is as good as it gets.

I am a loyal supporter of Santa Fe Cats and have been boarding my cats here for the past nine years. I simply cannot say enough good things about this business. I know that my beloved pets will always be well fed and carefully protected while I am away. My cats really enjoy staying at Santa Fe Cats because it’s like “camp” for them. Okay, I’m anthropomorphizing but only a little bit. My cats’ enthusiasm is real when they arrive and exit their travel kennels. I trust Dawn and Paul—and now Bobbi—implicitly. Like another reviewer stated, these folks genuinely love cats. The premises are scrupulously clean as well as bright and cheerful.– Laura E. Santa Fe, NM

Look No Further for Pet Care

The staff here is amazing and they really do treat your cats like their own!
