About Old Cat Shelter (sklonište "Stari Maček")

Cats House on Greg's Hill

Old Cat is a shelter for abandoned and abused cats. We're located on a private estate in a protected Park of Nature: « Moslavačka Gora», in the village of Voloder near the city Popovača in Croatia.

Were a registered non-profit organization. 

Mission of the shelter is to ❤ provide «a Forever Home» ❤ for the cats that never had a home or were abandoned by their families.

Our vision is to create a friendly place of meeting for people who share the attitude that streets of cities and villages are not the place where abandoned pets should live, and that everyone could and should contribute to this goal.

 

History

2008.  A 4 acres estate, woods and vineyards mostly, in the Protected Park of Nature on the slopes of Moslavačka Gora, near village of Voloder has been given  at disposal to the «Old Cat», a Croatian  nonprofit organizatio

 The cats were moved from the expensive and narrow hotel to their new home in a beautifull surroundings of  woods and vineyards. At last they have enough space for running, playing and sunbathing.

Thanks to a donation from Mrs. Zlata Kilchenmann and several Croatian companies: Samoborka, Ciglana Mraclin, Bramac, Schiedel, Knauf Insulation, KIO, Igm Šljunčara which donated building materials, the house in the middle of the shelter has been built.

Today «Old Cat» is a Home for Ever  for more than 100 cats.

About the Objects

I love sleeping in the cool grass during hot summer days.

Shelter consists of three parts : a house and one opened fenced space on the northern part of the house and one on the southern part of the house.

Opened parts: Both opened parts are dimensions  12 x 10 x 2,20 meters  and their sides and top are  closed with a double metal net. Each opened part is devided with metal net in three boxes  dimensions 12 x 2,5 mt. Following the sides of boxes are corridors in the shape of  letter L . Both opened parts , morthern and southern have two additional boxes  dimensions 2,5 x  1,5 mt, and  1,2 x 1,5 mt.

Cats' House. The house has 42 sq/mt. groundplan. It has two stores,  ground floor and attic. It has brick walls and tile roof.  There is a central corridor through  the ground floor. A wood stove and chimney are at the and of the corridor. House is heated with the wood when temperature falls under 15 degrees C. Three boxes are on  each side of the corridor Each box in the house  is connected with the outer boxes with 6 openings in the walls of the house. Through those openings cats can freely move from the house to the opened part and opposite.
