An anonymous donor purchased 25 “Stretch and Scratch” boxes for the cats at the Cherryland Humane Society in Traverse City and the cats are busy using them. These scratchers are used by animal shelters all over the country to reduce stress in caged cats and to give the cats something in their cage that they can “own” with their scent on it. It also gives the cats an activity to participate in and encourages their natural behavior of scratching. These scratchers are easy to install and are very strongly made even for the toughest cats.
The scratchers stay with the cat during it’s confinement at the shelter and are sent home with the cat. Each cat gets a new scratcher – so more will be needed! Please consider donating more of these scratchers to the shelter. You can have them shipped to the shelter directly and are fairly inexpensive. Click here for more information.
