Kitty Literature

Interested in having your child practice their reading skills in a supportive, comforting environment? Kitty Literature offers the opportunity for 5-10 year olds to help socialize our cats by reading to them. Participants can read to cats in our community adoption rooms for 20 minute sessions.
