GREAT FALLS – The Great Falls City Commission voted to approve a contract to build a cattery at the Great Falls Animal Shelter.

Commissioners voted 4-0 to award the contract to Detailed Construction.

The animal shelter currently does not have an area to house cats.

The new cattery will have cat condominiums, a dedicated treatment room, and triage area.

The vote follows a month of expressed frustration from community members after commissioners tabled the decision until September during an April meeting.

That decision was rescinded last week, which led to Tuesday’s vote.
