The cat's out of the bag. The Cat House, CTH, a no-kill cat shelter, is moving into a permanent home.
"We're really, really excited to have a home of our own, a building that we will own. We can set up in a way that will work best for us," Faye Stevens, President of The Cat House, said.
Stevens says the organization has been in its current location at Antelope Valley Parkway and Q for about 9 years. But they're ready to get their claws into a new building at 37th and O.
"It's exciting to us to be able to do things that in a rental, it doesn't make sense to do," Stevens said.
She says the new building will be update and have windows to help showcase cats to potential adopters.
Right now, the enclosures the cats live in are made out of temporary materials.
"Those were great when we started out, but they're not the easiest to clean. So we're looking forward to there being permanent enclosures," Stevens said.
She says that will help the volunteer-run organization better care for the animals.
The Cat House looks after about 150 cats at a time.
They're hoping with increased visibility on O Street, they'll be able to find more cats permanent homes, which they say makes their new location perfect.
THC hasn't set a move-in date for their new home yet because it still needs renovations.
