New feline facility planned for City Shelter, donations needed

The Natchitoches Humane Society wants to provide a space for cats at the City shelter where they will be totally separate from the dog area. It will be an indoor space with AC in the summer and heat in the winter. It will also provide larger crates. Cats will be able to get out of their cages during the day to walk around, play, climb, lounge, and just be cats. The space also needs to offer cats a screened in area for safe access to the outdoors.

Fortunately, Natchitoches has a big community of cat lovers. When word spread about providing a cat house for the felines at the City Shelter waiting for their new forever homes, people got excited and some said that they wanted to make a financial contribution towards the project. To date $2,250 of the $3,500 needed has already been pledged for the purchase of a 10’x16′ portable building. Additionally, the City will build a “catio” so that the cats can venture outside in a safe environment.

Donations to the Natchitoches Animal Control Shelter will help this project move forward. They can be sent to 450 Fairgrounds Road, Natchitoches, LA 71457 with a note that the money goes to the new feline facility. E-mail natchitocheshumane@yahoo.com for more information.
