The Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, MA received a donation from a national pet food company to renovate its’ three Cat Play Rooms. RFA was retained as the Architect to design these unusual and unique playrooms. The design consists of an assortment of bridges, terraces, spiral stairs, straight stairs, ramps, balconies and scratching posts in order to create a fun-filled experience for the feline members of the shelter community. In addition there are colorful wall boxes and floor boxes for the cats to rest in and/or find solitude in. The cats also have private litter box houses, designed to resemble miniature New England homes with faux slate roofs. All in all, people say it makes them want to be a cat.
