— Attracted to the city’s cat, some locals are now making sure their dogs get the chance to see their furry friends.
In the past year, dozens of people have been spending time with their dogs in Tampa.
And they are now looking forward to the opportunity to spend some quality time with one another in the warmer months.
Tampa’s newest attraction, Cat Draw Litter, will be open to the public starting Tuesday.
The facility will be located on the first floor of the city park, with the goal of providing visitors with a safe, comfortable, and exciting experience for the entire family.
The park’s first cat, named Jodie, has already been introduced.
“We wanted to make sure the animals would feel comfortable and be able to get along with each other and be together in a safe environment,” said TPD spokeswoman Lauren Rizzo.
The facility, which was first proposed in February, will feature a catwalk that will lead visitors to a dog kennel, where they will see their dog’s fur covered in cat litter.
The dog kenny is also the location for events, including cat yoga classes.
Rizzos office has received hundreds of calls and emails from people who have been interested in participating in Cat Draw, and it is now being developed into a full-fledged facility.
“The idea was to make it a fun experience for all the family to be out and about with their pets,” Rizzio said.TPD has partnered with Cat Draw to set up a temporary dog kenna at the park.
The kennels will be closed for the duration of the event.
If you are planning to visit the park during the event, Rizzoz says you should bring a leash and ensure your dog is secure.
If you are unsure about bringing a dog, Razzo recommends checking with your veterinarian.
“They can tell you if you are at risk of being attacked by an aggressive cat or a stray dog,” she said.
“If the animal bites you or attacks you, it can cause severe injuries,” Razzoz added.
“A person is very lucky if it only has minor injuries, and if it does have serious injuries, that person can get a hospitalization and get a long-term diagnosis of a broken jaw, or it can get serious injuries.”
When people get a bite, they are very lucky they do not get more serious injuries.
“Rizzo said that the goal is to keep the kennell open for at least three days per week.
If it is not open, Cat Litter will close at 11:59 p.m.
Monday through Thursday.
In the event of a full closure, the kenna will remain open for a short period of time.
The park will offer dog yoga classes for dogs and cats, as well as other activities, including a dog park.
Rizzos staff will also be on hand to offer additional assistance for those who are in need of a place to stay while they wait for Cat Draw.
I know she is very protective of her dog, and she is willing to give it all for Jodys safety,” she told ESPN.
