JACKSON, Mich. (WSYM) - The Jackson County Animal Shelter debuted its new cat habitat Saturday.

The new space was made possible by a large donation and partnership with the non-profit "Friends of the Animals Jackson Area.”

Cats at the shelter will now be kept in four separate rooms.

It's all in an effort to improve their quality of life.

“It was a dream of mine to have an area where the cats had more natural living where they get space,” said Cathy Anderson, Medical Director and veterinarian at the Jackson County Animal Shelter. “Cats are vertical, they like to 
climb where they have climbers, they like windows.”

The cat habitats will also allow the public to see and pet the animals up close and will encourage more people to adopt.
