    Just thought you all would like to see some pics of Piglet during a visit at the nursing home:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    She's so calm and gentle with the residents. I'm so proud of her every week we go to visit!

    P.S. I apologize for the poor photo quality...my cell phone camera really sucks and I'm not the best photographer on top of that!

    There will always be a need. I wish my two were more social. Somedaymaybe I can get another that is as social as my Willow was. I would be very interested in the therapy program.

    Haji looks great in those pictures! That's so cool that he's a therapy cat too! :ThumbsUp:

    If you're interested in getting certified and registered, you'll want to check out www.deltasociety.org for info on AAT groups in your area.

        I sent an email to the delta society person here in wisconsin... they have pet partners team training once a month. Definitely something to look into!

        That would be so cool to do...I don't know if Abby would be good for that though...she doesn't like to sit still very often, she is usualy running around...

        That is so awesome. I wish Lemmy was calm enough to do something like that. I work in a nursing home and the residents really love the animals coming in. Way to go guys!!

        That's great! :ThumbsUp: Best of luck to you and Haji in getting trained and registered in your state!

        The Delta Society recommends that cats and dogs be at least a year old before going through training to become therapy animals, mostly because young animals are just too hyper to make good therapy animals. Also, kittens and puppies have still-developing immune systems that are more susceptible to catching illnesses and infections. I'd wait until Abby is a little older and calmer to reassess her potential as a therapy animal. :Smile:
