Twitch looks just like my Mollie Rose!! A Therapy Cat is a cat that you bring to convalescent homes, hospitals, etc. and bond with the patients. Cats and dogs have been known to be great healers just by their presence. The feel of the fur, the sound of the purr, all of that cheers people up and helps them to get better. I love the program because it brings such joy to the residents and people who are in the convalescent homes and hospitals. I also love to listen to their stories of their own pets. Memories are all some of these people have and the looks on their faces when they talk about them is so rewarding. I can't wait to do it again.
