These kids read books to cats, and the reason why they do it is heartwarming

Like us on FB:

There is a place in Pennsylvania where kids are used to read book to cats, and we understand that it may look weird until you know the reason why they do it.

This place is called The Animal Rescue League (ARL), and is located in Berks County, Pennsylvania.

The ARL is running a beautiful program named Book Buddies, where volunteering kids read books to sheltered cats.
This activity has a double benefit, in fact, while kids are allowed to improve their reading skills, cats are comforted by their company.

At the shelter they say that “children in grades 1-8 who are able to read at any level may come into the shelter to read to the cats in our adoption room. The program will help children improve their reading skills while also helping the shelter animals. Cats find the rhythmic sound of a voice very comforting and soothing.”

If you want to know more about their activities, these are their Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. They also accept donations through their website,
