Good Old Tails Senior Animal Rescue: Cat Enrichment Grant Report

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

We purchased two tall cat towers for our foster cats.

The cats LOVE the high towers! We added one to a room that just had regular furniture and the free-roaming fosters have been using it nonstop. They even use the hammock/bucket-type perches that I have not seen many cats use in the past. It gave us more vertical space in our foster room and helped a new cat who was introduced to the other fosters, as he had more space to climb and hide.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Ernesto came to us from a crowded North Carolina shelter. We only had space for one cat, so we had to pick one — the oldest — from a group that was surrendered. Ernesto was nervous about new friends and picked a spot in the new tower as his own. Now he is friends with everyone and doesn’t mind sharing his space.

Unfortunately Ernesto is still fighting an upper-respiratory infection and is not available for adoption YET.
