I have been dreaming for ages now about employing a cat in my counseling work. Max was affectionate and snugly but sometimes just a little too quick with the use of his teeth. Willow enjoys unknown people from a comfortable distance. Nahum's constant curiosity and playfulness, I hope will make him a good candidate for a therapy cat. Theo's easy going nature would also make him a possible candidate, but as he is still settling into his new home, he gets to enjoy the non-working life awhile longer.
Nahum's therapy cat potential will be put to the test soon enough, as today I signed us up for a 7 week class which hopefully will lead to us becoming a certified animal assisted therapy team! For more information on the training, check out www.healingpaws.com.
