Additional objectives are to:

  • Become comfortable with human contact by providing human interaction.
  • Offer opportunities to spend time outside of their cage.

  • Giving cats attention by talking to, holding and playing with.
  • Brushing and combing cats.
  • Feeding cats and replenishing their water bowl.
  • And of course, giving our cats LOTS of love and attention!
