With foster pens, comes regular maintenance! We have recently upgraded the roof on one of our pens to improve the quality of the stay for cats passing through our care.
The previous roof was made of polycarbonate which let in plenty of light, but held little warmth in the Winter and unfortunately also leaked quite badly.
Following an application by the branch, an award of a sum of money from the One Charity Fund in the Summer, we were able to purchase this new roof, which is deeply insulated and will hopefully improve the stay for cats, and improve life for our fosterer!
The pen manufacturers sent two of their workers to strip off the old, leaking roof and over the course of a cold but thankfully dry day in November they replaced the roof with a new one.
Hopefully this roof will ensure many more years of life for our pen.
