    Funny enough, I have a post about what it takes to be a therapy cat on my blog today! Although it’s rather a daunting list, I actually think there are more potential therapy cats out there than people realize! Many kitties can do more and deal with more than their people know.

      You are 100% right. Therapy cats is a great message, and I’m glad you are promoting how people can make their cat a therapy cat. What I found was so many said I used to have a cat.

  2. I hadn’t ever thought of this before. I have five cats. Probably our tuxedo, Charley (a girl), would be best suited to therapy life. Right now, the only place they ever go is the vet, so I’m not sure how they would react to the change.

      Start slowly. Keep the carrier out so the kitties associate it with something other than the vet. Take Charley for short rides and then give her treats. Then take her in for a short visit once getting permission from the facility. I took Lenny in his carrier so if he got scared, he had a safe haven.
