Last fall, with the funds that we raised during our 2011 FUNdraiser, the Humane Society was able to build The Petunia Louise Community Cat Room.
It's a ten by eight foot glass-walled enclosure filled with climbing trees, privacy boxes, and lots of soft spaces to sleep.
The room is bright, comfortable space, large enough to hold 6 - 7 cats. Often the seniors, bonded pairs, and the harder-to-adopt cats are placed here. The room allows them to relax and come out of their shells. Better matches can be made when adopters are able to see cats showing their true personalities.
Showcasing the cats in a more home-like setting is proving to be very attractive to the adopters, and the cats placed in this room always go fast!
Look! We've made a difference! We pool our donations together, the Humane Society builds a dreamy room, and seniors, bonded pairs, and harder-to-place cats find their perfect, loving homes.
Nice work, Everyone!
Doesn't it make your heart happy knowing you were a part of it all?
A big thanks to Marguerite at the HS for providing these pictures!
So who's Petunia Louise? Her full story tomorrow.
