Cats are known to be territorial : each animal will have its favorite spots where it indeed prefers to stay. One thing to remember therefore : for our cats, each area has a pre-defined role !

This territoriality can be source of conflicts, especially in communal rooms : antagonisms between individuals can limit access to food and water. This can lead to weight loss or  in the worst case scenario, even medical complications. Never a good thing in an animal shelter, that’s for sure !
