OtRwC Day 16 Part 2: Katzen

Yesterday morning Elaine and I volunteered at the Cat World.  The Cat World consists of several buildings designed specifically for cats. Each building has two cat sections. Each section contains an indoor area and an outdoor area. The spaces are generous in size and it appears that there are usually 12 cats, more or less, in each. Best Friends does an excellent job at managing numbers so that there is no overcrowding. I have seen animal shelters with cat areas that will house a great many more cats in the same area. The cats are placed with others that they get along with or that have similar needs.

Elaine and I cleaned three cat areas. This meant scooping litter boxes, sweeping, brushing pads and blankets and removing any that had been peed on, wiping down surfaces, and mopping the indoor area. During this time, of course, we were free to enjoy the company, and you can bet that we did.

Cat Headquarters! Where we signed in and got our orders.

The roofing of the outdoor areas feature trusses and landing places for cats to explore. And explore they do. And now, some of the residents:

I think the cats manage this life rather well.
