Cat Massage Therapy

No live cats for this workshop, please. Bring a stuffed kitty to use for training purposes. Class size is limited to 12 students.

Who doesn’t love a great massage? Now you can learn to give your little prince or princess the extra pampering they deserve, as well as provide all the wonderful benefits that massage can offer. Not only does a massage increase the bond between you and your whiskered friend, but it can also help with relaxation, help your cat to learn to build trust, increase flexibility, make the coat shine and improve your cat’s overall sense of well-being. Grab a stuffed animal and join us for a fun, relaxing class as you learn the basic techniques that will have your favorite feline eating out of your hand!

The Case of the Unused Litterbox

Become a Detective and Solve the Mystery!

Has your cat started to have accidents outside the litter box? Do you want to rip your hair out? Take a deep breath. Cats may stop using their litterbox for various reasons. The important thing to keep in mind is that most cats prefer to use their boxes. The fact that they have stopped is a clear indicator that something is going on with your cat. Please join us as we navigate the reasons why your cat doesn’t use the litterbox and we’ll offer some possible solutions for this very common issue. Please leave your feline family member at home for this class.
