When it was time to make a new structure for the shelter cats at PAWS, we consulted with Rufus and made a model.
We needed something that would allow the cats to comfortably reach the windows between cat rooms; places for cats who like to be close to the ground, and those who like the heights.
After Rick finished construction and I completed the painting, Ernie tested it out in our basement.
Time to install it at PAWS! Would the cats like it?
Success! Max, Ollie, and Marshmallow moved right in.
Pretty Marshmallow is under two years old, very easy going and sweet to people and other cats.
From his new perch, Max can keep an eye on the cats in the adjoining room.
Max was brought to PAWS when a family member developed allergies. He’s two years old, friendly and outgoing.
Rick and I enjoyed working on this project. The goal of catification at the shelter is to make the cats’ stay less stressful and more comfortable while they wait for their new lives to begin.
