Tender Loving Cats, Inc. began the “Kitten Companions Project” to bring happiness and joy to senior residents living at local Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities and attending at Senior Centers. In-turn the residents are helping the kittens become more socialized to human affection. On Saturday June 16th, 2018 we held our first “Kitten Companions Project” event at Our Lady of Consolation Nursing Home & Rehab Care Center in West Islip, NY. We brought in 11 kittens and a friendly nursing mom cat to meet about 30 residents and brighten their day!
The residents were so happy and the kittens had a great socializing session. One of the residents came up to us at the end and thanked us for bringing the kittens. She had looked forward to the event and had been smiling since she found out kittens were coming, she said “This is the happiest I’ve been in a long time.”
One of the employees even fell in-love with a sweet 10wk old kitten named Poppy and we were able to deliver her to her furrever home two days later. I’d say the 1st “Kitten Companion Project” event was a huge success!!!!
