Who doesn’t like an invite to a party? Especially when that party is at Bath Cats and Dogs Home to celebrate the opening of their cat enrichment area that Support Adoption For Pets supported with one of our recent £50,000 grants.
Despite the dreary weather, there was a good turnout and everyone’s spirits were high at the grand opening of the new cat garden at Bath Cats and Dogs Home
Our Trustee Tanya was on hand to cut the ribbon, had make a toast to the future and then got down to the most important business of the day – interacting with the 5 kittens who were already playing in the garden.
Sitting on one of the benches she was quickly immersed in the feline antics going on all around her. The kittens were able to dart around the garden, which has lots of high and low shelves and platforms to climb on and a plethora of cat friendly plants to nibble on.
If that’s not enough to keep the cats happy and engaged there was also an abundance of toys, rest areas and of course, the fact that they had plenty of room to interact with each other. This environment also provides them with the opportunity to explore their human guests, safely and calmly. A true cat haven.
Bath Cats and Dogs Home will now be able to provide all rescue cats with ample opportunity to play and to exercise in a home from home environment. This will aid in rehabilitation, where required, and will provide the much needed mental and physiscal stimulus that all cats thrive on, and that every rescue cat deserves. It also provides a wonderful place for cats to interact with their potential new owners.
We think the cat garden is going to provide many fond memories for the Bath Cats and Dogs Home team and their volunteers, prospective owners and for the cats themselves.
