Cat Estate Agents Hosted by Blue Cross Pet Charity
Blue Cross pet charity has announced it is opening the world’s first Estate Agent for Cats.
They asked me to get involved.
The pop-up estate agent in London is offering unique properties for sale.
All designed and built exclusively with feline tenants in mind.
Their aim is to promote the importance of mental stimulation and a private place where pets can take some time to themselves and not be disturbed.
The pet charity currently has hundreds of homeless and unwanted cats in its care all needing a real home.
Head of Animal Behaviour at Blue Cross, Ryan Neile said:
“Cats are very inquisitive and love to explore new things, so most won’t hesitate to jump inside a cardboard box.
Owners often provide cardboard boxes for kittens to climb and play on and jump in and these early experiences create an affection for boxes in later life.
Cats also love to hide and feel safe and secure, they will often seek out dark nooks and crannies with high sides.”
The Paint We Used
The one we made was painted using DecoArt Chalky Finish paint.
- We used coral for the roof
- duck egg blue made with one part of this stuff to four parts this stuff for the walls and
- this purple shade for the door
All of the box homes are all up for sale via a silent auction ballot in the pop-up estate agents.
With auction proceeds going to help the thousands of pets Blue Cross cares for each year.
Each cat in the imagery used at the Estate Agent For Cats is a Blue Cross rescue pet looking to find a forever home.
The houses will be on display to the public, complete with detailed property descriptions and even floor plans wherever possible.
