Volunteers For Animals: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

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

We received 200 Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers through your CatsRCool program.

The Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers have given our cats another texture and toy in their cage. They provide a whole different texture for them without taking up valuable floor space like other boards. They provide great exercise also!

How many pets did this grant help?

200 cats

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

Pumpkin was one of our first cats to receive her scratcher. She was one cat who received two scratchers! Pumpkin was given her scratcher, which we attached to the cage door. When we came in the next day, her scratcher was ripped to pieces with cardboard all over her cage and the floor! She was thoroughly entertained with it. So we gave her another which she is pictured with — you can see the tattered edges of the scratcher. Thank you so much for this generous grant — it has been nice for the cats and entertaining for us!
