Permanent Long-term Care/Lifetime Care Rates

(Click HERE to jump to our Temporary Care/Long-term Boarding Rates Page)


Our Permanent Care, also known as Lifetime Care, is for people who find themselves in a situation where they no longer can give their cat the care he or she needs. Each situation is unique, whether it's allergies, major lifestyle changes, health issues, or something else we're here for your cat if you need us.

Some people are not sure of their future so they choose to bring the cats into our Temporary Care/Long-term Boarding program first. It could be the people have medical issues and their future is uncertain at this point in time, and if they get better they may be able to take back the cats. It could even be the fact that the people are having a difficult time coping with the thought of "signing over" ownership of the cats right now. We understand all of this, and we'll be happy to work through everything to your satisfaction for your cats' sake and for your peace of mind.

They primary difference between our Temporary and Permanent care is the ownership and responsibilities. Obviously while cats stay with us for Temporary care the owners still responsible for their cats' veterinary care, including but not limited to annual check ups, vaccinations, health certificates, FeLV/FIV testing, emergency care, grooming, prescription or special diets, medications, flea control, etc. For cats that come into The Sunshine Home at This Old Cat for Permanent care, we take ownership and we then become responsible for ALL of their expenses, including all of their their veterinary care, etc.


At The Sunshine Home at This Old Cat all of our rates are based on rooms, not cats. We use a sliding scale to determine the Admission Fees for our Permanent Long-term Care. We have 30 years of detailed records so we know, on average, what it costs to care for a cat and we use that average as a base for calculation our rates for each cat.

We also know what our overhead expenses are, such as utilities, taxes, building maintenance, etc. So we have a good idea of what it costs to house a cat or cats in one of our rooms. So whether it's one, two or three cats in that room these expenses are the same.


When we combine our fixed overhead expense with the cats' estimated expenses we come up with our Admission Fee. Because this can vary so dramatically based on the number of cats, their ages and their health records we first need a completed LTC Application back from you in order for us to give you the best rate. Once we have that we then can provide a quote.

We offer several options for payments, too, so there's a good chance we can make this fit into just about any budget!

The bottom line is that we will give your cats the best, first-class quality care that they deserve and we will do it for a fair and reasonable price. You have our commitment on that.
