i've read about therapy cats in lots of books and publications and it's such a great thing!!! i keep thinking our boy frankie would be a great therapy cat himself because he is so lovable. i know he would jump into anyone's lap and purr like crazy and lick everyone. he'd make anyone feel loved. there are websites out there if anyone wants to look into signing their own cat up for this service, but there is a list of like 12 or 20 requirements. some of these places, though, will cover you with insurance as well in case your cat DOES cause an injury or something.
i personally don't think i can make the time commitment myself unfortunately. plus, i don't know if i could keep his claws totally filed down and smooth all the time, which is one of those requirements.
