Hi everybuddy, Waffles here.
Yesterday was my very first visit as a Therapy Cat In-Training! That's me right before Glogirly and I left to meet the nice people at Catholic Eldercare, a nursing home just a mile from our house. I was making sure the Waffle Wagon was ready to roll.
We met up with my friend Dee, Spaghetti Bob the therapy cat's human. She's been helping me with my training and showing me and Glogirly the ropes.
We didn't take any pictures because it was a really important training session and Glogirly needed to be right by my side. Everyone said I did really well for my first visit. I was a little scared, but I was curious too. It's fun to ride in my Waffle Wagon, poking my head up and looking around. Don't tell the Boss, but everyone said I was super cute. And someone even thought I was a GIRL.
The first part of my training is to just practice visiting and getting comfortable with short visits.
Catholic Eldercare has a number of therapy pets that make regular visits so they were very understanding about me not having a lot of experience. I let some people talk to me and pet me. I even saw a POODLE. I didn't let him pet me though.
They said I could come back for another visit so Glogirly is checking my social calendar.
