Universal City Animal Care and Control: Cat Enrichment Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
This grant has assisted with giving our cats and kittens more enrichment time while in their cages and then a familiar item to have in their new home once they have been adopted. They may be more of a mess for staff to clean up everyday, as the cats and kittens tear into the scratchers, but we can see a notable difference in their energy and attitude while in their cages.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
One cat in particular was named Bobba. He was an older cat and wasn’t doing well in his cage. Once we inserted the cat scratcher, he tore into it like it was his birthday present, and after a while he was a lot calmer and more sociable with staff and visitors. We were able to get him into his new home and let them take the cat scratcher post with them.
