Ann Arbor Cat Cafe, which is offering free cat therapy to teenagers in the area this week
ANN ARBOR, me. – Kittens in the Tiny Lions Lounge and Cafe are ready to help local teenagers deal with the fear and sadness they are feeling this week.
Wednesday through Sunday, high school students can visit the Humane Society of Huron Valley’s Cat Cafe at 5245 Jackson Rd. For free cat therapy.
“Cats are therapeutic,” said Karen Patterson, HSHV vice president of humane education and volunteering, in a press release. “Studies show that cats purring lowers our stress levels and blood pressure, and literally helps us heal.”
Students who reserve online with the code HIGHSCHOOL can visit the café free of charge, provided space permits, the HSHV announced.
Reservations are possible from Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“And kittens’ zest for life and ‘live-in-the-moment’ mentality can help us take our minds off things,” said Allison Manz, manager of Tiny Lions. “I’ve seen it countless times; People come into the cafe in one mood and leave in a much better mood. You can’t help but smile with kittens nearby. “
Visitors are not required to adopt any of the cafe’s available animals, but the option is open to families who want kitten comfort at home.
