Pet Supplies Plus In Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Starts Construction On Kitty City, A New Cageless Adoption Center For Cats And Kittens
Pet Supplies Plus of Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, has started construction on Kitty City, a new cageless adoption center that will provide a free-roaming environment for adoptable cats and kittens waiting for good homes.
Kitty City is the brainchild of store owner Addy Shattuck who has been adopting cats and kittens out of her three Pet Supplies Plus locations for 20 years.
Kitty City will enable cats and kittens to socialize with each other and look out of a floor-to-ceiling window in nearly 1,400 cubic feet of space equipped with perches, cat walks and other forms of kitty entertainment. It will be constructed of plastic and glass to provide for a bacteria-free environment with multiple screens for ventilation. A full-size door will enable prospective adopters to interact with the cats, which will come from Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan and other shelters. All cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and health checked and can be adopted for $59.
“Cats do not do well in a cage so we are creating an environment where they can be cats,” says Shattuck. “It’s difficult to see the true personalities of these intelligent animals when they are confined in a small space. We want the public to see just how unique each cat and kitten really is. And we are hoping that a lot of them will find good homes as a result.”
Kitty City is scheduled for completion by August 2011. Pet Supplies Plus in Bloomfield Hills is at 2057 Telegraph, north of Square Lake Rd. For information, call 249-333-7545.
