The Suncoast Casino recently underwent some renovations and as not to disturb their resident cat colony, built little wooden houses for their feline guests.


Durban, South Africa – The cats of Durban work to improve the lives of feral cat colonies in the Durban area. The Suncoast Casino know this. and have feeding programmes in place as well as sterilisation drives to ensure that the cats found within the area do not breed any further.

Recently they shared a post thanking the Suncoast Casino for actively working to protect the cat colony that lives around the casino. The casino recently underwent some renovations and bought cat houses to place around the building so that the colony wouldn’t be disrupted by the building.

According to Cats of Durban, the casino has been subsidising the feeding of the feral colony and has worked really hard to ensure they were not harmed during the renovations.

“You might not know this, but there has been a colony of cats on the beachfront around Suncoast Casino for years. A dedicated group of feeders has been looking after these cats, they are all sterilized and fed, and they keep the beachfront nice and clean and rat-free.”

“However, when Suncoast undertook their major overhaul a while ago, there was a very real concern that the cats would be scattered, harmed, scared or otherwise disturbed. “

“Suncoast management rose magnificently to the challenge. They built little houses for the cats, for shelter, food and water, and they subsidise the food for the feeders.”

“The little houses are in a discreet part of the grounds so that the cats do not disturb any guests or visitors, but for animal lovers, there is a wonderful knowledge that the kitties are loved and cherished.”

“Suncoast management acknowledges that a managed colony of cats is an asset for any premises, as it is a bio-friendly and sustainable vermin control.”

“Now that is a gamble that paid off!” – Cats of Durban
