Purr Me a Story – Sept 12

August 15, 2021 @ 11:30 am - September 12, 2021 @ 1:30 pm


What could be more happy than curling up with a cat and a book? How about children curling up with a cat and a book?


Happy Cats Haven is excited for the return of our popular Purr Me a Story Program where children age 7-12 are welcome (with a parent or guardian) to sit in and read to our resident cats and kittens! The kitties will welcome registered children into their colony rooms and listen, without judgement, to the stories being read out loud!

Reading out loud to our cats builds reading confidence in a safe, judgement-free environment while also giving our special kitties some family time with the children while they wait to be adopted. Smiles and purrs will abound!

Bring your favorite book, or use one of ours, and enjoy a unique experience at our feline-friendly animal rescue and adoption center! Books available targeting ages 7-12 but children are welcome to bring their own books too! Children outside this age range are allowed. All children must attend with a parent or guardian. 

Purr Me a Story is held at Happy Cats Haven on select Sundays from 11:30am – 1:30pm and preregistration is required. This is a FREE event and reading slots last 30 minutes each. ***Due to limited space, if you are bringing more than one child, please reserve one ticket per child***
