Cats work best in my life now where I foster rescued kittens until a forever home is located. When I tried to explain that the kittens were only staying with me a little while to my nephew and niece, I thought, “This is going to be difficult for them to understand.” I couldn’t have been more wrong. After explaining, my then 4 year old niece summed it up. “You’re just babysitting the kitties, right Aunt Penny?” How do they do that?
I am enamored with pets in the classroom. I’ve posted about the Pets in the Classroom grants, and just stumbled upon this program.
