Orange Street Cats, Inc.: P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
The beautiful and warm P.L.A.Y. beds were used to "comfy up" Orange Street Cats' sanctuary for feline leukemia-positive cats.
While our FeLV-positive kitties may not have the same length lives as those who are negative, they deserve all the love, care and compassion that all kitties deserve! While all are available for adoption into single-cat and FeLV-positive homes, many do stay their entire lives with us. Because their time may be shorter, we try to provide above-and-beyond love and care for them.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Smoky, more fondly known in the FeLV sanctuary as Nanny, is one of the kitties who enjoy these beautiful, cuddly and warm beds. Nanny was an owner surrender at the age of 18 who was discovered to be FeLV-positive. She loves to eat, she loves to be petted, and she loves to cuddle on her new bed. She loves it even more because it matches her beautiful green eyes! Nanny, due to her age and FeLV status, probably will not be adopted, but we’d like to think that the volunteers shower her with enough love and attention that she doesn’t mind!
