Literary Felines, Big Sisters and Cinnamon

This is an unabashed theft of some so very cute video clips.

The "Book Buddies" program at an 
Animal Rescue Shelter

“There’s no such thing as other people’s children.” 
Hilary Clinton 

Children, who read at any level, 
can come to the shelter to read to rescued cats. 

“Nothing you do for a child is ever wasted.” 
Garrison Keillor 

The kids improve their reading skills 
while also helping the cats 
to feel more comfortable around people.

“I’ve never outgrown that feeling of mild pride, 
of acceptance, when children take your hand.” 
Ian McEwan

“Like all parents, 
my husband and I just do the best we can, 
and hold our breath, 
and hope we’ve set aside enough money 
to pay for our kids’ therapy.” 
~ Michelle Pfeiffer
