Cat cages in cat shelters don’t seem to contain places in which to hide — 4 Comments

  1. That’s a sad but interesting point. Would it help to partially cover the front of the cages? That way the cat could “hide” behind the cover but viewers could peek in.

  2. Practically speaking it probably has to do with space. When you’re trying to shelter as many cats as space allows, you may not be thinking about places to hide.

    The shelter I worked at, gave cats who could get along with a few others, a couple of hours in our lunch room. Someone was assigned to be there to play with, cuddle, and generally supervise. This gave the cats several places to hide, windows to look out, and a cat tree or two, many toys, and catnip. Kittens got their play dates in our bathrooms.(with lids down)
