Programs for Youth/Fall Classes

Cat Tales

Looking for a way to get your child to read more? We might have the answer.  How about having your child read to our cats? Not only will it help your child, but this program helps the cats become a little more socialized and gives them a chance to get some TLC in the process. 

The Cat Tales Program will meet every Wednesday for 45 mins. We will start on Wednesday, September 8th and meet every Wednesday until December 15th.  Class will start at 3:30 and end at 4:15. During that time we will have the children find a spot in our Cattery and start reading. The last five minutes will be time to play with the cats.  We ask that the children be in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. grade.

The program is limited to 10 children and we ask for a donation of $100.00 to have your child participate. Click here to register.
