I visited multiple cat boarding facilities over the past month in west Akron/Copley and Easdale had the most 'homey' arrangements that I found. The cats are placed where they can see people walking around, a bank of plants is near to cover a bare wall, and the individual boarding spaces are each vented to the outside. There was no malodor of the many cat boxes in a relatively close space. The care taken is obvious. The owner herself gave me a tour and her care for those in her charge is readily apparent.
