Programs for Youth/Winter & Spring 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, January 12th and meet every Wednesday until April 20th.  There will not be class on March 30th due to spring break. 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.
