NUS CatCafé

Helping the cat community in NUS

[UPDATE] Feline Therapy Programme April’16

It’s me again!

FTPApril’16 was a huge success, where lucky students high in spirits got the chance to interact with the adorable Cat Therapists (therapists who are cats) of Cat Safari Singapore. Due to intense interest in the event last semester, we’d doubled the number of sessions and brought FTP to a bigger venue this time round — more space more cats, simple maths! Held at Cat Safari’s own space at Sunny Heights, NUSCatCafe partnered with and was joined by Voices For Animals (VFA) founder Derrick and VFA Volunteers.

FTP highlighted the potential of companion cats as a source of therapy to destress. Throughout the programme, participants cooed and interacted with the free roaming therapy cats around the venue, many of which started as rescues coming from difficult backgrounds, hinting at the tragic reality some of these voiceless creatures face even today. We’d like to once again thanks VFA and Cat Safari Singapore for their cooperation to bring the benefits of FTP to NUS.

Pictures below are testament to the thorough enjoyment attendees felt during the programme. Pardon the blurriness!
