Cat Companion Cures
Therapy cats are a special breed unto themselves. They're friendly, sweet and comfortable around lots of people. If you're feeling sad, anxious or distressed, the moment you take one of these furry darlings into your arms, difficult emotions just melt away.
A few times a month, the rescue volunteers and I take Mosey, Chester and Wilma to spend time with the residents of assisted-living facilities and retirement homes. It's an incredibly healing experience for all. The kitty trio brings smiles and comfort to people—even to some who don't like cats. One elderly gentleman was so charmed by Wilma, he couldn't part with her when another resident was asking for some lap time. Fortunately, Mosey was free to plop on a lap. The rest of the afternoon was enjoyable for all and "cat fight" free.
