Valleyview community welcomes feline friends

April 8, 2021

Meet Pepper, Valleyview’s newest resident, on loan from the Calgary Humane Society. Pepper and future fostered felines will hang out for a while in Valleyview’s new cat room. Residents can book time to visit and enjoy the companionship.

The community Cat Room features a hand-painted mural and cat cushions, all created by residents. A Silvera employee made shelves, stairs and scratching posts. Our sincere thanks to the Calgary Humane Society for covering food and vet costs for Pepper and other fosters who will spend time with us during their journeys to their forever homes.

Valleyview’s cat room is a first for Silvera. Research shows many benefits of pets living in seniors’ communities. They help resident stay active, feel happier and less stressed, and be more connected.

In February, Silvera also began welcoming small pets at Shouldice and Westview communities.
