The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) estimates that approximately 5 to 7 million companion animals will enter shelters nationwide in 2012. Unfortunately, the number of cats entering shelters has steadily increased, meaning more and more of our furry friends are left without a permanent place to call home. In addition, animal shelters across the country are facing slashed funding and are unable to care for many of the felines who could use their help.
To comfort these misplaced cats and promote June as Adopt-A-Cat month, Imperial Cat has expanded their brand of high-end feline friendly products to include Scratch ‘n Bits™. The affordable line of scratchers is designed exclusively for shelter cats and promotes feline adoption. The honeycomb texture of Scratch ‘n Bits simulates the feel of real tree bark and satisfies kitty’s natural instinct to scratch, encouraging a healthy feline lifestyle. These affordable scratchers help misplaced kitties relieve stress and feel a little more comfortable before finding a new home. Once adopted, pet parents are encouraged to bring kitty’s Scratch ‘n Bits home with them, to help the cat transition and discourage anxious clawing at household furniture – the leading reason for relinquishing household cats.
For the fourth consecutive year, Imperial Cat customers have the option to purchase and ship a case of 20 units of Scratch ‘n Bits directly to the shelter of their choice for only $25 (shipping included). Imperial Cat’s Director of Sales, Kristie Hamilton comments, “Cats are our priority. If there is a feline need, Imperial Cat wants to be the solution. No cat should be forgotten, especially those without a family or a forever home.” By encouraging people to support local animal shelters throughout the month of June, Imperial Cat hopes to inspire others to do good deeds for homeless animals year-round, while spreading the message about the importance of pet adoption.
Because Imperial Cat wants every shelter kitty to be happy and healthy, Scratch ‘n Bits fit a variety of shelter spaces and appeal to all types of cats. Scratch ‘n Bits are made in the USA, from 100% post consumer recycled materials and are 100% recyclable.
