The Cats Village will serve the various cats in our care, including those with special needs. Many of the cats we’re seeing now have chronic or acute health needs that require ongoing specialized care.
Some do better in groups isolated from others. For example, we’ll have designated housing for cats with FIV and Feline Leukemia, as well as rescued cats and kittens recovering from trauma and neglect.
We’ll even have an “In-Continental Suite” for cats with incontinence and neurological issues. And we’ll have a nursery wing for nursing moms and orphaned, neonatal “bottle babies.”
Because we know cats love being outside as much as we do, all of our cats who are medically able will have access to an outdoor “Catio.” These enclosed Catios will allow our feline friends to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air of the outdoors, while staying safe and secure.
Of course, all the cats and kittens in our care will greatly benefit from enrichment and socialization from visitors and volunteers.
Cats Village will also include a Cat Café where guests can enjoy local-sourced foods and beverages while hanging out with our cats. There will be a reading room for the coffee and tea crowd to read to cats, and a protected outdoor dining space for folks who just enjoy casual company with our adoptable felines.
