of the sanctuary’s cats live in ... what else? ... a
cat house. This 300 square foot building, called Hoedad’s
House, was named for a very special cat Steve had found
as a starving kitten while living overseas in Sri Lanka. Hoedad
moved with Steve from South Asia to Seattle and eventually
Hoedad’s House is heated and insulated and has windows
on all four sides, so it is bright and sunny all year long.
In winter months the cats follow the sun across the sky, moving
from window to window to sun themselves on specially built
cat perches that line the walls.
The cats also enjoy a large outdoor enclosure attached to
the east side of the building. This enclosure lets them be
completely outdoors in their “jungle” during the
summer but safe at the same time.
