"No Frills" HumaniacTM SCRATCH BRICKS
Scratch Bricks for cats have been around for a long time in various shapes and forms. We have designed our own "no frills" Scratch Bricks to help reduce the stress for confined cats in the shelter. These "bricks" attach securely to cage bars and will encourage cats to perform natural behaviors like scent marking, cleaning their nails and exercising their paws. Most scratch pads are single sided only. ACES Humaniac Scratch Bricks allows for the unit to be turned over, effectively doubling the life of the brick.
Humaniac Cat Castles
The Castle follows the cat from when it enters the shelter all the way to its forever home. Can be purchased as a carrier or a complete unit (as pictured) - perfect for confined cats. Quantity discounts are available on this item.
