Such a fine place for old pussies to hang out!
Inside a fully functional house next to Keysborough Animal Shelter in outer Melbourne, the only residents are twelve aged felines.
A shelter staff member visits every morning and night to feed the moggies and human visitors pop in to spend a few hours.
Ms Johns, who visits twice a week, said owners can rest easy knowing their pets will be cared for. That’s the case even if an owner dies or is incapacitated. “You can’t often rehome a cat, especially an older cat, and people want peace of mind,” she said.
To become a resident, cats must be at least eight years old and owners must donate $6000 to cover expenses for the cat’s life.
