My younger daughter volunteers at a couple of no kill animal rescue shelters. She helps out with the cats at one and dogs at the other. I'm a fan of cats and have gone to the cat facility with her to meet all the cats. The cats are not kept in cages, they are in rooms. Some rooms house only one cat and other rooms house up to four cats. It all depends on the cats and how well they get along with others. Just like people, some cats are cranky. Every month or so I make a cat bed using a cat print fabric for the cover and stuff it with leftover scraps of fabric from quilting projects. Each room is named after a famous cat and here is a bed I made for the Pink Panther room.
Sophia claimed this bed and it seems to suit her very well.
