How did you spend your Fourth of July? We hope you had plenty of time with family and friends…and maybe even a few fireworks too! We wanted to make sure the residents of Catty Shack enjoyed the Fourth of July as much as their human counterparts…so our enrichment team decided to surprise some of the cats with red, white, and blue paper-mache enrichment items! These paper mache items were created with flour/water for the paste, non-toxic children’s glue to attach the streamers, and hidey-holes to secret away some chicken pieces for them!
On Thursday, July 3, guests to the Ranch were treated to a special viewing of an “Enrichment Day.” At approximately 2:30 PM, our volunteers handed out the paper mache items filled with chicken treats to some of the cats on “tiger row.” They quickly tore their treats apart and enjoyed the mess they created to get to the treats!
Our enrichment team created over 48 of these items to be handed out on July 3 and July 6. If you missed the Enrichment Day on Thursday, make sure to come out this Sunday (July 6) from 12:30 PM – 4:30 PM for tours! Enrichment items will be given to some of our residents at approximately 2:30 PM. As a special bonus, The Blood Alliance will be on site taking blood donations! Anyone who donates blood will receive half off admission for July 6. Click here for more information on our July 6 Tours.
