Waffles Wednesday: The Ladies Love a Therapy Cat In-Training


Um, hi everybuddy. Waffles here.

Glogirly says I'm doing really great with my Therapy Cat training! We visited the nursing home on Thanksgiving morning before turkey. We were just hanging out in the lobby talking to the residents that came by. The ladies are all really nice and very excited to see me. Except for the one lady that said she never liked cats. Can you believe it? She obviously hadn't ever met a cat like ME before.

But that's ok. Glogirly says that every time we visit, we're brightening someone's day. I bet there are lots of people in nursing homes that used to have a cat and really miss them. That's why it's so important that I visit them.

The Ladies Love My Souvenirs 
I give everyone I meet one of my special WAFFLES postcards so they can remember our visit. The ladies think I'm very photogenic.

This is me here on the front and my Waffle Wagon license plate on the back.

The ladies can put them on their dressers with their other pictures or they can even pin me to their bulletin boards. 


Therapy Cat In-Training
Within the next two weeks, I'm going to be starting my official therapy visit evaluations. The organization I'll be working through, called Love On A Leash, is a non-profit foundation for pet-provided therapy. I'll need to have 10 documented visits. With each visit, an evaluator will fill out a form about how I'm doing. I have to be up to date on all of my vet visits and shots too. It doesn't say anything about being cute, but I bet that can't hurt.

Glogirly is going on a therapy visit today with my purrsonal trainer, Spaghetti Bob and his human partner, Dee. Glogirly wants to see how a really experienced therapy cat works his magic. Then she'll come home and teach me all the stuff she learns.



Nice Ride
Whenever I go on a therapy visit, I get to ride in my Waffle Wagon. It's like a pet stroller, except WAY cooler. It has a detachable cockpit, I mean pet carrier. And has a sporty set of really bicycle wheels. Chicks dig that.

I always wear a harness and leash too, but I'm just posing at home here so I don't have it on.


My Waffle Wagon folds up for easy travel. The wagon fits in Glogirly's hatchback and I ride inside the pet carrier up front.



Ok, ladies! Are you ready?

  11. Waffles, if my human were ever stuck in a hospital or a nursing home, she would ONLY want to see a kitty! Dogs leave her cold and actually make her miss kitties even more. So I am glad you are getting this training - I hope it inspires more kitties to do this good work.

  15. It's great that you're doing this, Waffles. All we have ever seen in the hospitals here are therapy dogs, and not everybody is comfortable with dogs. You'll bring lots of happiness to a lot of people.

  19. Waffles , you have a new follower. My sista Molly Mew loves to look at your photos. She says she can't wait to hear more about you becoming a therapy cat. She and I think this is a really really cool job and wish you the best. I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and she said "Like Him" while pointing to your photo.

  20. One more thing.. I know there are a lot of people in people homes who are really sad because they had to give up their cats. We have 10 cats at my humane society who have been given up over the years for that reason alone. I am so happy you can bring happiness to them.

  21. That's wonderful, Waffles!

    Well done!

  24. Waffles, it is so heartwarming to read about your training to be a therapy cat, and there are lots of people in nursing homes and other facilities who miss their cats or dogs. You certainly bring joy to those people. And hmfph to the lady who "never liked cats," poor dear--she doesn't know what she is missing NOW, does she??? (Maybe you will help her see cats in a new light!)
    Anyway, keep up with your training and visits and we look forward to reading more about your adventures in the Waffles Wagon!

  46. It's so great that you and Glogirly do this. Mom says Raz would be a great therapy cat but he's probably to old to start training.

  47. What a wonderful thing you are doing, Waffles! Who can resist all that orange handsomeness! We know in no time you will win over the one lady that said she never liked cats.

  48. Hi Waffles!

    Our momsy used to work with the elderly before hers gotted sick. Hers said they gets very lonely in the nursing homes, and many of their families do not visit often. Many of them miss their pets, too. So we know that you visiting them will brighten their days significantly!!

    You'll be a great therapy cat, Waffles! :)

  49. We wish you were in Grand Forks and could visit our Gramma. She misses her kitties very much. She gets therapy dogs at her place but only a therapy cat once in the last two years.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That is sooo awesome, dude! We absolutely love your postcards, too! Tabby's jealous that you have postcards to hand out to everyone. She doesn't even have those! ;) You're doing so well on your training, and we bet all those ladies will fall in love with you soon enough. Even the one who says she doesn't like cats!
