From Sandy cooley to All Panelists: 03:14 PMWhat typically happens during kitten season when intake is very high and theoretically the shelter would have fewer cages available?

Lisa Bassi

Crazy applause!!!
Nancy Holzberger
01:50:57
OH, I need that nibbler tool for SOOO many things!! I love it!!!
Keith Zabel
01:52:24
Do you usually cover one side of the two kennels with a towel or shoreline cover so they have a quiet space?
Amy Duskiewicz
01:52:49
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Casey Claiborne
01:52:54
OMG! YES DIY KITTY HEADS
Teryn Jones
01:52:56
LOVE IT
Donna Manley
01:53:08
Purrfect idea !!
Wendy Ivey
01:53:11
That is a pretty cute idea
Amanda M Newkirk
01:53:15
what would a donor pay for that? #ALLTHEMONEY
Amy Tefft
01:54:22
So that means those two portal connected cages house ONE cat, correct? In our shelter, the portal divides TWO cats who do not interface. I have even noticed it causing anxiety when the caged cats can see one another, or worse, if the lucite ‘door’ falls down. I’ve even taped a lucite face shut to alleviate stress. Any Tips?
Amanda M Newkirk
01:54:24
some tool librarys lend/rent them
Katie Pemberton
01:54:43
Does anyone do this with non-Shorelines? We have like wood or maybe MDF or particle board.
Katie Pemberton
01:55:16
Also it sounds like, if we fill up in cats and need to close the portals to have more cat cages, that is an option. True?
Casey Claiborne
01:56:02
So there's no sealant that helps mount the portal to the metal kennel sides before screwing? I'm just wondering for like, water leakage, urine, cleaning liquids that may get between the side of the portal and the metal.
VS2
01:56:23
From Nancy Gregory to All Panelists: 03:26 PMcan you put a portal in the floor to enable the kitties to go up and down or wouldn't that work. Our cages are in a pet store and made of wood not steel.
VS2
01:56:47
From Jacqueline Johnson to All Panelists: 03:26 PMwhere do you get the portal?
Amanda M Newkirk
01:56:58
@ceil THEY DO NEED TO BE TIPPED!
Nancy Holzberger
01:57:18
I was wondering about the floor thing too. Also, what about trapping germs between the portal and the cage door?
EIleen Hill
01:58:17
Do the screws loosen after time and need tightening?
Dianne Beal
01:58:17
what's the measurement (width) of the portal with the door open?
Casey Claiborne
01:58:28
*claps*
EIleen Hill
01:59:10
Has there been reports f the doors breaking off, like they do on the cat dens?
Nicole Bouldin
01:59:52
Good job! :-)
VS2
02:00:08
From Brittany Crowe to All Panelists: 03:30 PMI saw someone asked this earlier but do you cover one side for a quiet space?
EIleen Hill
02:00:55
Okay that is awesome the raised bed!
VS2
02:01:35
From Jacqueline Johnson to All Panelists: 03:31 PMis there pictures of this in resources or do we do a screen shot?
Amanda M Newkirk
