Feline Finish Line Rescue: Stretch and Scratch Cat Scratchers Grant Report

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

The rescue cats' cages and cat room.

It helps them exercise and entertains them. They love to stretch with them. Normally there is nothing in the cages to help them with their natural instinct to scratch. These are perfect and fit nicely in the cages and hang nicely in the cat room.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

Nila is a female tortie who had to have one eye removed. She came into the rescue with an eye that was infected and it never matured. Spending time in the cage was boring for her because she is very playful. The Stretch and Scratch was a great way for her to get exercise. [Another cat was helped when] one of our adopters complained about the kitten scratching furniture. I gave her two scratchers and told her to tie them on the table legs. She said the kitten loved them and started to leave other items alone. We had many kittens in 2013. They must be quarantined when they first come into the rescue. Kittens are very busy and love to play and use the scratchers.
