Good Mews hosts a variety of ongoing events that provide invaluable attention and interaction with our cat family. Join in the fun and sign-up for these events early as space is limited.
reading to cats
Does your child in grade 1-8 need extra reading practice or would he/she like to spend time helping socialize shelter cats by reading aloud to them? Our Reading to Cats program is designed to help students gain more confidence in their reading skills and to provide enrichment for the cats and kittens. The interaction also teaches kids the importance of empathy, animal welfare, and community service.
Each 90-minute reading session can accommodate up to 10 students, and one parent or guardian must accompany up to two students. Weekday sessions in April are great for home-schoolers. We’ll also be announcing summer sessions soon – stay tuned!
Students should bring a book to read and wear comfortable clothing – long pants and closed-toe shoes—as they will be sitting on the floor and interacting with the cats. The reading sessions are offered at no charge, but donations are always welcome.
yoga with cats
Space is limited
OCTOBER CLASSES NOW POSTED!
Are you ready for some downward-facing cat? What could be better than relaxing, meditating and striking a yoga pose amidst the Good Mews feline residents? Join a certified yoga instructor for a one-hour, beginner-level “Yoga with Cats” class at Good Mews. Expect a few giggles along the way as the cats roam freely among class participants and may even curl up for a nap on a yoga mat. Classes are limited to 15 students and take place in the main cat room at Good Mews, 3805 Robinson Rd., Marietta. Minimum age is 18. Your $20 class fee will go directly to the care of the cats and kittens in our shelter. Grab your yoga mat and we hope to see you there! Meowmaste!
