12/6/19: Good morning 😊 We are open on Saturdays from 12-5 and Sundays 12-4 🐾 Dexter is the guy that had a very mild positive on a ringworm culture. He’s been on meds almost a month and will be cultured again very soon. I feel comfortable with visitors again. The cats have missed their friends so much! 😻 If you choose not to visit until after Dexter’s next culture, we understand. We look forward to seeing all of you! πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸ˜» Manny is super excited and looking out the window! 😻

Adopting a Cat at Stay-A-While

Stay-A-While wants only the best life possible for our cats and kittens. To ensure that they get responsible loving homes, new guardians are required to agree to the following policies. A legal contract is signed upon adoption agreeing to these policies. Stay-A-While has the right to refuse any adoption based on the information provided during the pre-adoption interview.
