BURLINGTON, N.C. -- The Burlington Animal Services and Pet Adoption Center said they have a new way to display cats that are up for adoption.   

Pet Adoption Welfare Society gave the adoption center nearly $16,000 for 12 cat condos, which are larger than typical cat cages and allow more to be shown off.

Officials said the cats will also be cleaner because the condos have separate playing, eating and bathroom areas.

Center supervisor Tammy Penley said the kitty condos are going over well with the public because they look better than the old cages and it appears the cats like the condos as well.

"I think it gives them a lot more room and takes away from being a caged atmosphere some animals don't like to be caged, they really don't," Penley said.

The Burlington Animal Services and Pet Adoption Center takes in three to four thousand cats a year.
