Orange County’s First Luxury Cat Hotel, Club Cat, Celebrates its Grand Opening

Club Cat, Orange County’s first luxury hotel exclusively for cats, announced that a festive grand opening that includes a ribbon cutting ceremony, entertainment, and tours of the hotel and suites, will be held Friday at Club Cat.

Founder Shana Martin conceived of Club Cat after years of struggling to find appealing cat care options when she traveled for business or pleasure. “I dreamed about a place where my cats could be safe and healthy but also receive the type of genuine love, attention, and care that they are used to at home,” says Martin, who does not have extended family nearby. “Cats don’t necessarily require the level of care that dogs do, but recent studies show that they prefer human interaction and actually need it to thrive.”

One of the many distinctions that separates Club Cat from more traditional boarding options is that pet parents can watch their beloved cats anytime, anywhere from an app on their iPhone or Android phones. “Each of our suites has a state-of-the-art webcam so that cat parents can get their kitty cat fix in real-time,” says Martin.

Club Cat’s décor, a combination of modern trompe l’oeil and whimsical cat portraiture, marks another distinction. Martin combined her love of literature and cats to create an upscale and spacious yet cozy, inviting feel. Suite names are “cat-punned” after the classics – The Chronicles of Furnia (after C.S. Lewis’sThe Chronicles of Narnia) and The Wizard of Paws (after L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz) – to name a few. Each suite boasts a uniquely hand-painted cat positioned playfully around a book spine.

Suite size is also a significant departure from traditional cat boarding facilities that kennel cats in cages. Club Cat patrons will stay in spacious eight-feet tall suites with actual walls and a glass door. Standard suites house up to two cats from the same family; deluxe suites are even larger and can easily fit up to three cats from the same family. Each suite comes with wrought iron beds, multiple levels to perch on, and enclosed balconies at the top so that cat guests have options.

Martin consulted Kelly Doria, DVM at All Paws House Calls, to provide expert advice on designing the cat hotel to minimize stress on cats. “Stress can substantially lower a cat’s immune system,” says Doria. “Orange County cat owners are fortunate to be able to board their cats in a safe, secure, stimulating place like Club Cat when they travel.”

An added perk is that one of the most prominent emergency veterinary hospitals in the country – Southern California Specialty Veterinary Hospital (SCSVH) – is just across the street should anything unexpected happen.

Entertainment includes:

  • CatFlix – Feline-friendly programs
  • CatCasts – Live webcasts for cat owners who want to check in on their kitty cats 24/7
  • CatChats – For cat owners who want to have live “cat-versations” with their kitty

Special amenities include: 

  • Fur therapy
  • Derrière trims
  • Pawi-cures
  • Calming therapy
  • Nightly paw-down service
  • Happy Hour in the salon / playroom

Knowing your cherished feline companion is being pampered not just once a day, but THROUGHOUT the day, EVERY day can make all the difference for you – and your kitty cat – while you are away.

Besides. Why should dogs have all the fun?

Yoga and Its Benefits: How it Contributes to Our Lifestyle

Present day fitness experts and mentors have developed numerous types of exercises leading to a healthy lifestyle. Out of those exercises, only yoga remains as one of the most essential and useful practices that have a significant impact on our mental, spiritual, and physical health.

To just put, if you are to take up a yoga class or perform yoga regularly, a good outcome will follow, and the quality of your overall health will improve. But how does yoga contributes to our lifestyle?

Yoga Helps in Losing Weight and Staying Fit

With regular practice of yoga, calories are being burned, and it varies from 180 to 360 per hour depending on the type of yoga you practice.  

Although there are lots of exercises which help in reducing your excess fats, take note that yoga training is better in keeping you in shape. The best suggestion of yoga poses for weight loss includes Seated Forward Bend and Upward Plank Pose.

Yoga Reduces Inflammation

According to studies, practicing yoga may reduce inflammation. Inflammation is an immune response which is painful and a typical reaction to infection or injury. Similar to it, a 2014 study showed that practicing yoga for 12 weeks reduces the inflammatory markers in the body.

Yoga Improves Muscles Flexibility, Balance, Posture, and Strength

It is necessary to reject the notion of “I’m not flexible enough to do yoga” because you don’t have to be flexible to do yoga. For instance, practicing a plank pose concurrently works on your shoulders, legs, arms, and abs.

As a beginner, you might find your body a bit stiff. However, after regular practice of yoga poses for a few days or weeks you will see a radical increase in your flexibility and a boost of your strength, posture, and balance.

Yoga Increases Sustainability as Well as Your Lifespan

The most significant benefits of yoga are its ability to inspire people and improve healthy living and self-care. As researchers have shown, that a consistent yoga practice can increase sustainability and life span.

Take, for example, breathing practices allow you to take more oxygen which enhances your body’s function and boosts blood circulation. Now, as you start to slow down and breathe with yoga, your body’s functioning such as cell damage and oxidation will slow down.

Yoga is Highly Effective in Treating Sleep Disorders

The highest population of the world is wrestling with sleep disorders due to the modern lifestyle and work culture. This condition causes too many life-threatening diseases, and if you have trouble sleeping, you should try yoga.

Yoga, according to research conducted by a medical school, that after eight weeks of practicing yoga to people who are suffering from insomnia, they found significant improvements in participant’s sleep quantity and quality. With the profound meditative aspects of yoga, it relaxes their nervous system and makes the mind calm and composed.


Yoga indeed has immense health benefits more than any other exercises. The word yoga means “union” which primarily relates to the union of mind, body, and soul. And doing poses, you can find ease in your body, and then you can connect to yourself.
Moreover, finding the time to practice yoga just a few times in a week may be enough to make a visible difference to your health. If you want to try and learn more about yoga and wellness, you can visit sites such as for good advice.
