Shelter life is often stressful and lonely for cats. At PAWS, our volunteers and staff ensure the cats get plenty of one-on-one petting and play time, and those who are at PAWS Cat City have plenty of room to roam in our colony-style setting. But, there are still many cats at PAWS Companion Animal Shelter who spend a fair amount of time in their enclosures alone.
That's why we give the cats these special scratchers that allow them to stretch their legs and paws, as well as keep their nails trim. It gives them a little more comfort and allows them to demonstrate their natural scratching behavior in an appropriate way until we can match them with a forever family.
