1000px-Happy Valley Shelter

Happy Valley Shelter, designated with the number 71, is a cat-only animal shelter. It is the headquarters of the only known branch of the Kennel Kittens, and a mirror of Shelter 17.

It is where Ace, Fluffy, Kugel, Squeak and Tiny conduct their operations.

Description EditEdit

The building appears to be built from the same blueprints as Shelter 17. Instead of "17", the awning of the main office bears the number "71", which is "17" backwards. The sign above the office shows a green silhouette of Ace, rather than a blue one of Lucky, and an elongated picture of a cat replaces the word "Pound". The cages are outdoors, with some cages separated so only there's only one cat per cage, and others that are open field enclosures where dozens of cats can mingle, similar to Shelter 17. Scratching posts are available in several enclosures, unlike at the dog pound. Tunnels leading to the underground Kennel Kittens headquarters are hidden primarily under boxes of kitty litter, rather than under dog bowls. According to Ace, the humans have to clean up the spilled kitty litter whenever the cats go underground.

We finally see the shelter in the episode "Kennel Kittens Return," where Squirt infiltrates the shelter by dressing up like a cat. Once inside, Squirt describes the underground tunnels as "a bizzaro version of our pound".

Staff EditEdit
