Earlier this month, Santa made a stop in his busy schedule and visited Catty Shack! Kids got the chance to visit with Santa and tell him everything they wanted for Christmas…but the real show-stoppers were our cats and their pumpkins! Every year, we get donated pumpkins that were not bought for Halloween and give them to the big cats as an enrichment activity. While they don’t “eat” the pumpkins like many people believe, they do have a blast chewing on them, hitting them around their enclosures, and dragging them into their pools!
Our animals get various enrichment activities throughout the year, including pumpkins, Christmas trees, birthday “cakes”, blood popsicles, and lots more!
