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!
