A Shelter Animal’s Perspective

The following information was sent to us by Katherine Zenzano:

I wanted to share with you a one-day “volunteer recruitment” project that was so personally profound and striking, it brought tears to my eyes and to the eyes of many of our staff.  It gave me deep insight into the experience of our shelter animals from their perspective.  Images from these videos cross my mind often. Even daily.  

In the first video you see the dark silhouette of a cat as she sits in her cage.  She takes a moment to eat from her bowl, then surveys the outside of her cage, and then as if she suspects she is being watched she glances back towards her litter box.  She stands to reveal a stub of a tail and looks around as seconds go by…slowly. She hears the faint sound of simulated birds chirping in the background along with the occasional faint tease of human chatter and movement.
