Kzoo Cat Cafe and Rescue: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

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

We used our generous cat enrichment grant from the Petfinder Foundation to purchase a kitty running wheel and new cat trees for cats to play, climb and hide in.

While they are living at the cafe and waiting for a forever home, we know that it is so important for the kitties to have enrichment for their mental and physical health. Our kitties love to play with our customers and volunteers and love to run around and play with each other, but we are always looking out for new and creative ways to enrich their bodies and minds. Our kitties are housed in a cage-free community area and the more socialized, playful and interactive they are, the more likely they are to catch someone's eye and get adopted!

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Since we set up the kitty running wheel, one of our adoptable kitties, Marley (first and second photos), was the first to figure it out and LOVES running around and around chasing toys or treats. He is a sweet boy with a LOT of energy and the running wheel is a great way for him to play, interact with people and burn off some energy. When you live with 50+ cats, it can sometimes be overwhelming, but Marley has been able to stand out to customers and volunteers when he “shows off” by running on the cat wheel. Marley is still looking for a forever home. You can meet him here.
