The Brevard South Animal Care Center (SACC) knows that in order to get cats adopted, they need to get people to visit. That’s why they teamed up with Square Paws, a cat furniture company, to turn their second cat room into a feline fantasyland!
You may recall seeing the Harbor Room, the shelter’s first cat room to get a fun makeover. But the SACC and Square Paws’ newest project involved decking out one of the rooms to look like a cat carnival. While it’s smaller than the Harbor Room, it leaves a big impression; it’s an important way to draw in visitors because it’s the first room that they see when they enter the shelter.
Get a sneak peak into the new Kitty Carnival room!
The Kitty Carnival is made up of three main attractions: Ferals’ Ferris Wheel, the Big Cat Fun House, and the Whac-a-MOUSE game.
For starters, these carnival attractions were specifically build for those of a certain height–cats only!
Ferals’ Ferris Wheel has 11 perches.
They are fixed in place for optimal lounging.
And the center includes a hollow fleece tube for superior sprawling.
The Big Cat Fun House also provides lots of nooks for hangin’ out.
The head of a lioness may look fierce, but it’s purrfectly feline-friendly.
Whac-a-MOUSE is a spin on the classic Whac-a-Mole arcade game.
Here, visitors can interact with playful kitties by making the mice pop in and out of their hiding places. (Watch the video below.)
And now, for a 360 degree view:
They’ve sure packed a lot of feline fun into a small room! How cool is this?! The decor provides a bright, cheery atmosphere for workers, volunteers, visitors, and of course, the cats! Do you think a fun, themed room like this would help pet adoptions at your local shelter?
