Cat Scratchers

Help shelter kitties beat the shelter blues


These Stretch & Scratch cardboard scratch pads are the perfect gift for shelter kitties!

A scratcher gives kitties something enjoyable to do--and that helps relieve stress and boredom. Because let's face it, being in a shelter isn't as fun as being in a home, no matter how much the volunteers dote on you.

The scratchers hang on cage doors. We send them home with the kitties when they get adopted and put up a fresh one for each kitty we get.

Our Cat Area

TJO's cat area is a combination of cages and colony rooms. Each housing style has its advantages and disadvantages. Cages reduce the spread of "kitty colds" which can spread as quickly as "kid colds" at daycare, but cages also reduce the space cats have to relax. Scratchers are one way we enrich the cage environment and make it more interesting for our residents.

Our kitties thank you for your kindness!
