Exciting news – we just got a kitty camera for some of our kitties in the cat room! BIG thank you to our generous manager for providing this. We will be changing the location of the camera every day to spotlight all of our awesome felines! The camera will be disconnected in the mornings from roughly 8 AM to 11 AM to allow our cat room techs to clean. Other than that, we will always be on. Click the button down below to check them out! 🙂 We hope you enjoy!
