Feline Friday~Cool Shelter Donation Ideas!

Happy Friday all!  Today I want to showcase 2 really awesome items you can donate to your favorite animal shelter! 
One is the STRETCH AND SCRATCH ~  a corrugated cardboard scratcher designed for shelter cages. It attaches to the door of the cage & provides kitty with exercise, entertainment, enrichment & encourages natural behavior! CATS LOVE THEM!  You can order off their website & they will ship directly to your shelter of choice.  A GREAT gift for kitties awaiting their furrever homes!  I had a case sent to our
Kansas Humane Society & they were a big hit!

Another great item in the CAT KURANDA BED!  You've probably heard about the Kuranda beds for dogs, well they make them for CATS too!  They are made to fit in shelter cages & provide kitty with somewhere to jump, perch on or hide under.  Our KS Humane Society has a goal to get one for EVERY cage in our lofts!  We have 7 (I believe) lofts with approx. 21 cages in each.  The lofts are where kitties are placed until there is room for them up front in our large "Kitty Cities" & "Cat Condos".  These beds can be ordered from their website & delivered directly to shelters also!  GREAT!
Don't you think EVERY shelter cage needs a "Stretch and Scratch" AND Kuranda Bed???

I sure hope it cools off here & we get some MUCH NEEDED RAIN!!!  We got cheated out of the 2-3 inches we were expecting from Tropical Storm Hermine.  All we got were clouds & a few sprinkles!  Keeping my fingers crossed for storms expected this afternoon!  Yeah...we'll see...

Those are COOL! I'll have to look into donating some of the stretch and scratches for our shelter. The cats would love having a scratcher IN their cages (after all, when we let them out of their cages, some of them run to the scratching post first thing).

Have a great weekend! :)
