Checking in at Wayside Waifs

Wayside Waifs is undergoing some renovations right now. The work includes a new gift shop, already open in the reception/adoption center area, as seen below.
The work in the cat zone continues. What is going on is that the cat area will become a collection of rooms in which cats will be able to live out side of cages in groups or "colonies." It is hard to see the work, especially since the floor was refinished and could not be walked on, but you can see how the floor plan has changed. In addition, a glass door is at the end of the hallway...
...which will open into a sun room for the cats! Pretty cool--I've always wanted a sun room for my house!
Here's another look (below), this time from an outside corridor into one of the rooms for cats, and you can see another just behind it. This will be a place where those walking by can see the cats lounging around.
All this is expected to be finished by next Friday, September 10th, in time for an adoptathon. It's quite a change for the cat area, it will be really neat to see. Of course, Wayside Waifs is still finding good homes for dogs and cats, to check out the animals in person, visit them at 3901 Martha Truman Road in south Kansas City, or visit on the web at

What a beautiful facility! Looks like the cats luck will be looking up when they get there.

Yes, generally, I would say they have fallen into a bed of clover when they land at Wayside Waifs!

I hope you had a good holiday weekend and didn't have to labor! ;-)
