Dreams can come true! Lori Mason, Licensed Veterinarian Technician and foster coordinator, has been eager to provide a more relaxing and stress free environment for cats during their stay at Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) in Kent.

“The thing about cats is that they need more space than a kennel to show their personality. Cats are different to dogs, they are not ones to solicit attention to potential adopters who graze by the cages. Dogs will bark, jump, or even make eye contact… whereas most cats will tend to just lay in their kennels. Sure, there are cats that get adopted quickly because they will walk over to the kennel door and purr or meow. But, this room was created for the cats that don’t get adopted out as quickly because they are more timid. This spacious cozy room allows for (older) cats to relax in this stress-free environment and to be seen by potential adopters show casing their personality, and ultimately ensuring that they too get adopted soon.” says Lori Mason.
