Habersham County Animal Care & Control: Cat Enrichment

What was the money or product used for?

We purchased individual cage scratchers for ALL the kitties in our isolation room, overflow holding, and kitten cages. We also purchased a FUN One Fast Cat wheel to exercise some of our more energetic felines. We were also able to purchase Feliway diffusers and refills for all three cat rooms.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The cage scratchers helped the kitties stay busy and be able to perform natural scratching behaviors. The One Fast Cat wheel helped to exercise some of our more energetic felines. The kittens had a BLAST learning how to use the wheel, and it got staff and volunteers involved “training them” to learn to use it. The Feliway diffusers and refills helped reduce stress in our cat population.

How many pets did this grant help?

300+

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Renegade was a sad little abandoned kitten who came to us. She despised being in the cage all the time. We decided that even though she was small, she might be spunky enough to enjoy the cat wheel. This little lady sure surprised us! She had a blast running on the wheel, and the video we took of her landed her a home within 24 hours!
