There’s nothing like being read to; simply put, being told a story makes ya feel loved.Shelter animals around the world deserve to feel special and cared for, and the Animal Rescue League of Berks County thought of an unusual way to nurture their underprivileged cats. As part of the shelter’s new program, kids from Grade 1 to Grade 8 visit the animals and read to them; the shelter reports that the kids’ reading improves and the animals are calmed by the voices. We, human and feline, are all in this together, and this is a beautiful way to connect to and learn from those struggling to find a home. Take a look.
