When a cat enters a facility it is often put into a stainless steel or similar type of kennel with a litter pan, food/water pans & a blanket or towel. This can create a very stressful situation for the animal when it is in an unfamiliar space with no place to hide.
ACES Humaniactm “Cat Castle” (Patent No. US D760,445 S) provides cats (up to 35lbs) with a safe, cozy and secure environment, which helps to minimize the stress of shelter life. The main carrier has multiple ventilation holes and a “drawbridge” that allows the carrier to be closed off or open. This permits the cat to exit or enter when it feels comfortable to do so, allowing it to become familiar with its surroundings at its own pace. The attachable “turret” turns into a viewing platform or a sentry point so they can see what is going on around them. It also provides a separation point from the main carrier but still within its own scent areas. By providing the cat with options, (hiding, stalking or resting) helps promote natural feline behavior quickly. These features help the cat feel safe and secure not only in the shelter but also in the transitioning period to their new forever home.
When erected as a carrier the dimensions are 16″ L x 11 1/2 W x 14″ H (internal dimensions are 16″L x 11 1/2W x 9″H). When the turret is attached the dimensions are 16″L x 11 1/2W x 18″H. Units can be purchased together or separate. Made from sturdy cardboard construction that is fully recyclable. Made in the USA from at least 30% recycled material.
