Not all cats are suitable for therapy work. Look for a cat with a calm temperament and who enjoys being around people.
Therapy cats need to be trained to be comfortable around strangers, be able to stay calm in new environments, and not be easily spooked.
Regular check-ups with your vet will ensure your cat is in good health and up to date on vaccinations.
Therapy cats should be kept clean and well-groomed, with regular brushing to keep their fur in good condition.
A healthy diet is important for maintaining your cat's overall health and well-being.
Regular exercise will help keep your cat in good physical and mental health.
Keep your cat's litter box clean and accessible to avoid accidents during therapy visits.
Before taking your cat to a therapy session, it's important to acclimate them to the environment beforehand to help them feel more comfortable.
Ensure that all handlers, including yourself, know how to properly handle and interact with the therapy cat.
A cat carrier will help keep your cat safe and secure during transportation to and from therapy visits
