Bug's Cat Gym has been the venue for Cat's Night Out and Pets Reducing for Rescues Ideal Weight Contest for the past 10 years raising over 20K for local rescues. It is a cat socialization, foster, environmental enrichment education and weight management center, and was recently published in a pet obesity book by board certified veterinary nutritionists. On the fun side we held  the 2016 Kitten Olympics. The goal is for cats to have a "happy visit" (including car ride!) to allow veterinary visits to be easier on pets & pet parents.  For more see Bug's Cat Gym  FB Page

Samantha Martin is a nationally known animal trainer of Acrocats fame and will be holding an advanced cat training clinic in the fully remodeled Bugs Cat Gym including a 13 foot climbing wall.  A $5 donation or more is suggested to Madison Cat Project (MCP). She will focus on safe, environmentally enriched ways to keep your cat fit and healthy including advanced climbing, jumping and tricks.

Each suite will have a webcam Petcube , facial recognition litter box with built in scale Toletta, Surefeed & PortionProRx feeders as needed to allow us to better monitor cats in our care.

Yappy Hour at Bug's Dog Gym/Day Care  & Cats Night Out Celebration in Bug's Cat gym

Friday Night August 2 from 5:30 to 7:00  pm

We have added a 750 square foot gym/daycare adjacent to our downstairs grooming area. Groups will be limited to 5-10 dogs to provide a safe quality veterinary supervised socialization & exercise experience. It will also serve as a meeting area for future Yappy Hours, dog club meetings etc.

Upstairs we will be holding one of our very popular Cats Night Out events in Bug's Cat Gym ( and allowing cats to acclimate to a novel fun cat friendly space. We will have also MCP kittens for adoption.


Cat Friendly Practice™ Designation  & Dog Friendly techniques (similar to Fear Free™ ) are now a very important part of veterinary medicine to avoid undue stress and make pets want to return to clinics willing. It is our hope that by adding these new services to our current focus to comprehensive preventive care and pet obesity they will make future visits easier and help prevent behavior problems too.
