For my son’s school, they have therapy dog’s that come I think once a month. In this setting the kids at the Autism Society of Southern Arizona get to see two to three homeless kittens and cats each week through the Purrs for Autism program.

Anyway, the article is entitled “Purrs for Autism Pairs Kids With Autism With Kittens for Social Play by over at The Mighty. I must admit, I’m thinking my son would prefer that.

Christmas gifts of joy and happiness

As I sit on the computer deciding what to write, I realize how lucky I am. Every Christmas I make a donation to an organization of their choice. For my oldest, it was ASPCA.

Just like most kids, he loves dogs and cats. It wasn’t much but I know every little bit helps and so to all those dogs and cats out there who bring joy and happiness to kids and their families, we say thank you!

Happy Holidays!
