We’re trying something new. The doors to our cat rooms are open, ready to welcome everyone. That means you can walk into our shelter, turn right, open a door and ‘bathe in cats’, as one of our facebook friends said.
Cats learn to affiliate with their place. So our shelter cats that have become accustomed to their spot on the couch are reluctant to show their true personality when they are temporarily moved to the visiting room with the goal of getting to know their potential adopter.
We decided to try a little experiment. (No control groups for us!) We are welcoming the public into the cats’ space. Sit on the couch, make your lap available. You just might find your next cat!
