Mews and Nips: Therapy Cat Comforts Stressed Travelers at Calgary Airport

calgary-airport-therapy-cat

Flying used to be fun, but for most travelers, it’s pretty stressful these days, which is why it’s nice to see that some airports have some therapy pet programs to delight weary passengers. Travelers at Calgary International Airport can now get some feline cuddles from Taz, a 3-year-old tabby. The PALS (Pet Access Leage Society) program at the airport currently has about 50 dogs. Taz is the first cat. Visit GetLeashed for more information.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on Sunday, we explored the connection between the Super Bowl, Kitten Bowl and spirituality, on Monday, we offered tips on how to make moving with cats less stressful, on Tuesday, we featured some unique nose and paw print jewelry, on Wednesday, we told you about Allegra’s special toy, on Thursday, we introduced you to Barn Yarn hand knit catnip toys, and on Friday, we continued our Classic Cat Book series with Doris Lessing’s On Cats.

The kitty in today’s video is fascinated with the humidifer. Do your cats do this? Allegra and Ruby have never shown any interest in ours.

Have a great weekend!

    Rainy is in training to be a therapy cat with seniors and students. Wait until she hears that therapy cats can help at airports too!

    My dream job is to be a therapy cat at an airport! I love them. (Never mind what my human thinks, MOL!)
