    The Friskies® Cat Habitat was graciously designed and constructed by Purina, in consultation with a well-known cat behaviorist. All of the surfaces are covered in cat-friendly materials so our feline inhabitants are able to roam freely, play, and socialize with their cat friends 24 hours a day.

    Located across the street from our Adoption Center, the Cat Habitat gives cats a chance to stretch their legs, sharpen their claws and mingle with their friends. This open-space living is especially helpful to, and appreciated by, cats that have been in our care more than 30 days.

    According to Friskies, it opened in 2004.

    They're trying to spin it as an "expansion" I guess :dontknow:

    The irony is that the original facility, likely donated by Purina probably went from inception and planning stages to finished construction in less than 18 mos. while this boondoggle is now in its 4th year without a single nail being hammered.

    "Goddamnit! I invented the cage free cat enclosure and those motherfuckers from Purina stole it right out from under me! Everyone in the Hamptons knows that Beth and I had been working on this project together for years before we actually met in 1998. We've been busting our asses doing fundraisers and collecting money and now we've finally gotten to the point where we're only a decade or two away from breaking ground. That last extremely generous $10M donation from Billy Joel has gotten us much closer to our goal of $7M. I swear to God, Robin, I want to sue these Purina fuckers for every penny they're worth. But always it's these shyster lawyers I pay a fortune to keep on retainer who tell me I don't have case. How the fuck is that possible? Why am I always the one getting getting screwed by these attorneys and judges?"

    I only eat cage-free cats. And they have to be organic. I'm healthy and care.

    Why hasn't anyone in the media/press called them out on this sham?

    And Billy Joel and Rachel Ray donated $$$$

    Aren't they pissed?

    We should all start Tweeting and emailing NSAL with uncomfortable questions.

    This thing is taking longer to build than the Freedom Tower. They haven't even broken ground on this thing. How much more money do they need? How can Stern and Beth have all these people donating to a project that has no time table and is nothing but a vanity piece so Saint Beth can have a mural of herself on the building.

    I love the fact that one poster on this board did the math based on the size of it and how much they stated they needed in order to build it. I forget the exact numbers, but this person calculated that the cost per square foot for this facility was around what you would pay for prime real estate in a Manhattan high rise.

    Ok, I know this is a bit busy....I need to clean it up...

    BFF 2014 donations totaled $275Kish
    So where did that $1.5M Billy Joel and RR donated??
    Last line shows that Beth Stern is indeed President of BFF and it is managed by a Hedge Fund guy

    To be fair to Beth, those expensive shoes and pocketbooks don't buy themselves.

    Why didn't those assholes from Purina put their name on that sign on the roof Robin ?
    Everyone in the cat community knows that cats don't like shelters that look like regular houses either.

    I miss the good old days when you needed to get rid of a cat.
    A pond a river or a lake; a cat a brick a burlap bag.

    Just two more Billy Joel concerts and the Bianca's Furry Friends Shelter is almost there. With your donations we can bring it over the top.
