Therapy Cats

Anybody have a therapy cat?

One of my babies is perfectly suited to be a therapy cat....he's extremely lovey, he loves to be touched and is just an all around love bug. I'd love to get him started as a therapy cat to visit the elderly. I googled it but the only group I found will only certify pedigreed cats and Simon is most definitely a mutt.

So do you guys have any suggestions on how I can get started? I'm at a loss.

I once thought Rocket would make a great therapy cat because he's such a relaxed cuddle-happy cat. But then I discovered he was afraid of strangers. So, I guess that won't work.....

Try I had a customer with a therapy cat who went through them and said she liked the worskhop. She also got right to work as soon as she found a hospital that participated in animal therapy. Oh, and he most definitely was not a pure breed, just some moggie from the pound

I know that therapy dogs are much more popular/common. My grandmother lived in a nursing home for years and they had therapy dogs come in every other Sunday for visits. My grandmother was a huge animal nut and she looked forward to their visit more than anything else!

Anyways, if you do a search for therapy dogs, maybe the same organizations also do cats. Or at least know where you can find out about therapy cats.
