Therapy cat?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there such thing as a therapy cat, like a therapy dog that goes to nursing homes or hospitals to cheer up the patients. I was just wondering since my cat is very outgoing and a people cat. he will be visiting a bunch of kids at a school and if he enjoys that it would be cool. So I was thinking he meets the personality of a dog that would be a therapy dog. Another thing with him is that when my other cat Neko was a kitten I got scratches all over my hands With Willie I think I've gotten one and that was probably him trying to crawl onto my shoulder to bump my head when he slipped. So do therapy cats exist?

Yes there is, go to "The Delta Society" website for more information. Im sure there are a lot of different places named this, so if you maybe type in Delta Society - Therapy Animals..... It'll pull it up.

Yes I think there is, as suggested try the Delta Soc. Some ppl are cat ppl & some are dog ppl. If your cat's reliable give it a go. You would both need training & certification to qualify.
