Tabby Tales Rescue: Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
We were able to purchase items to help with enrichment for cats in foster care. We purchased five aromatherapy essential-oil diffusers, five Serenity Blend and Lavender essential-oil bottles, five Peek and Play toy boxes, five Snacky Mouse treat dispensers and four varieties of Kuranda cat beds.
The items purchased with the Adoption Options in Action grant are helping our cats to be more comfortable and relaxed in their foster homes. The essential oils help the cats adjust to new locations and create a relaxing, peaceful aroma that eases anxiety in the cats. The Peek and Play boxes and the treat dispensers are helping to keep the cats stimulated while they have to spend time alone, either due to isolation while treating an illness or just if their foster parents are away for a long period of time. And the Kuranda beds are a great option for the cats to have something to sleep on that is not on the floor and can easily be cleaned and disinfected.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Maddie is a cat who has a hard time adjusting to new environments. She has been in the rescue for a long time searching for the perfect home, and a few months ago her foster mom moved out of state. Having the essential-oil diffuser and a consistent bed to move with helped her transition into her new foster home with ease. We are hopeful that Maddie will find her forever home soon!
