A friend of mine on Facebook shared this sweet story (via the Dodo) the other day and it really warmed my heart. I thought you'd enjoy it too! The Animal Rescue League of Berk's County in Pennsylvania has a "Book Buddy" program where they pair children with shelter cats. The children improve their reading and are given non-judgemental support, while the cats get affection, friendship, and comfort. I haven't seen a better win/win opportunity in a long time! This program makes me extremely happy.
Here's some more happy moments from the Animal Rescue Book Buddy page! I love all these photos. Now I want to be a book buddy too! My cats would never sit steal and hang with me like this!
Until next time Swellions!
