Cat Condos for Coweta

Cat Condos for Coweta

More cat condos are coming to Coweta County Animal Control. Thanks to the generosity of the Holland Ware Charitable Foundation another set of cat condos will be added to the facility at Selt Road. Cat condos sound a little luxurious, but they are more functional than fluff. The condos allow the cats to be separated with walls instead of open wire and to have individual ventilation of their cages (condos.) This significantly reduces the transmission of disease in the cat population at the county’s animal control facility. Photo/Special.
