Who Will Save These Kittens? A Memory Clinic?
Did you know that new kittens need to be bottle fed every couple of hours? The problem is most shelters don't have the man-power to take care of all the kittens' needs! In order to solve this dilemma, the Pima Animal Care Center and Catalina Springs Memory Care Center are pairing up and both the kittens and the seniors are benefitting from it.
The Pima Animal Care Center solely relies on the help of foster families to care for new kittens. So, when two kittens were abandoned at the Pima Animal Care Center, they needed some help. Thanks to Catalina Springs Memory Care and their senior residents, these kittens are now being well cared for and will be completely ready for their forever homes.
The constant love and contact does not only benefit the kittens, but the seniors too. The Catalina Springs Memory Care center serves the needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other forms of memory loss. The contact with the kittens helps residents remember specific memories from their childhood, which is not easy for the patients at the memory center.
