Children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level are invited to read to the cats in our cattery. The program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping center cats by providing socialization and human interaction. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing.
P.A.C. Paws are available to children between 2-4 pm on the second and fourth Tuesday and Saturday of each month. Children can bring their own books or borrow one from our library. Each child will provide a 20-minute reading session to their “Purrfect Reader” Cat.
We’d also welcome a donation of children’s books (ages 6-13) to our growing library. Donations can be dropped off at the Pet Adoption Center any day between Noon and 7 pm.
