therapy cat is in session

Many years now have I dreamt of this day!

Marvin's first day on the job
Marvin just completed his first therapy session! For those that don't know, I work as a counselor in private practice and for quite a number of years I have wanted a therapy cat. And today that dream came true!

It took Marvin some time to settle, he spent most of the hour pacing around the office. His roaming involved several trips on and off of the client's lap and up on the back of their chair. Thankfully, the client was gracious, even when Marvin stuck his tail in their face! Eventually, Marvin settled into my lap and snoozed.

Working with a kitty in my lap - purrfect!!


  1. Wow, way to go, Marvin! I know I'd feel a heck of a lot better baring my soul and baggage to someone if there was a four-legged companion around!

  2. I love the therapy cat idea!
    What a great way to make a person feel at ease.

    Horay for Marvin! (and you, too)
    You've told him about the importance of confidentiality, of course???

  3. That is wonderful Marvin, ya done good! Our Mom is a counselor too, but not in private practice.

  4. Yay, Marvin! And don't they know that putting your butt in someone's face means that you like them?! Silly humans!

  5. Marvin is so lucky to be a therapy cat!

  6. I'd be happy to confide in his big brown ears!

  7. Concatulations to you dearest Marvin. Keep on getting more acquainted with running the Office and it will all be yours one day. xoxox
