Kitty City NM Gets iPet Companion
A few years ago, I visited Kitty City NM in person and was really impressed by their facilities. Kitty City NM is a no-kill cat shelter in Alamogordo, NM. It is an awesome facility for kitties that are looking for new homes. Ed reported that in 2015 they adopted 307 cats and we pulled and transported 81 cats and kittens from high kill shelters to no-kill shelters in northern NM and CO
I stay in touch with the operator of Kitty City NM, Ed Denton. Ed recently wrote me to tell me that they now have iPet Companion, funded through a grant, at their facility.
The iPet Companion system allows website visitors from 172 participating countries to interact with adoptable cats using interactive toys placed in the room and a “live” video camera. The camera rotates 360 degrees and can zoom in on the cats playing with the toys or just catch the cats napping in their beds. The camera and the three toys can all be controlled from your home computer.
To play with the cats click through to Kitty City NM’s website here. Once the camera system links up with your computer you can get into the “queue” to play with the cats by clicking the icon. Each visitor that is in the “queue” is allowed 2 minutes to play once it is their turn.
Kitty City NM is hoping that this new system will help Kitty City with increased adoptions, donations, volunteers, and visitors to the cattery. We hope you enjoy playing with the kitties!
