A FABULOUS DAY AT THE ORLANDO CAT CAFÉ
April 13, 2017
By Jodi Ziskin

On March 21, I held my second seminar at the Orlando Cat Café. It was the evening before Global Pet Expo, so the beginning of three days of pet-everything. Since so many cat bloggers, product designers, behaviorists and other cat-centric professionals were in town, the expo provided the Café a great opportunity to attract cat lovers from afar.

OCC Hosts Group from Children’s Home

The sounds of “oohs” and “ahhs” fill the air as 12 very excited, wide-eyed children enter the cat play area of the Orlando Cat Café. Mesmerized by fuzzy tails and whiskers, the children eagerly approach the cats and gently toss toy mice across the floor. At any given time, the Orlando Cat Café is home to 15-20 cats seeking their forever home; however, today’s visitors are different. They also long for a loving, forever home.

The children are current residents at the Florida Baptist Children’s Home located in Leesburg, an emergency shelter for children who have been removed from their families and homes for various reasons. “I figured the cats and the children were in the need of love and comfort and they would help each other,” says Jamie Scher, Shelter Supervisor. “I believe animals serve as a great tool of comfort and recovery and I am excited to see how the children and the cats bond with one another.”

Scher heard about the Orland Cat Café while he was adopting a cat of his own. “It sounded like a fun place for the children to visit and I thought I would reach out,” Scher states. “Many of the children had pets of their own before coming to the shelter so I really thought this would be a great experience for them.” The Children’s Shelter was established in 1985 as an emergency shelter for abused, neglected and abandoned children and is a children’s shelter licensed through the Florida Department of Children and Families. Children between the ages of six and 13 are placed in the shelter by the Florida Department of Children and Families after being removed from the custody of their current caretakers, frequently with only the clothes on their backs. It was originally licensed for only five children. It currently serves up to 12 children at any given time. The program has shifted over the years to accommodate children for longer periods of time with a staff trained to help those with elevated behavioral issues.

The shelter can also house larger sibling groups, allowing them to stay together and feel more at ease in difficult times. A group of four siblings residing together in the shelter came along for the visit to the cat café. The only visitation they had was from their grandmother who, sadly, passed away earlier this year. They have been in the shelter for three years and currently do not have family members willing to take all four children together. A shelter caregiver states, “We don’t like to split up the siblings. Sometimes all they have is each other and keeping them together helps them cope with what they are going through.” Other children have lived in the shelter longer and it is estimated there are more than 10,000 children throughout Florida who need loving and stable homes.

“The work that the Florida Baptist Children’s Home does is absolutely amazing. We were honored to provide an exciting outing to these great kids,” says Jessica Whitehouse, Director of Community Relations. “We have successfully adopted 65 cats to new homes since opening in September. We want to remind the community that there are plenty of ways to get involved in helping the children and animals in your own backyard and we hope people will be inspired to step up and help in whatever capacity they can. The need it there.

Thank you Clermont Newsleader for the write up!

OCC Hosts the CatWise Cat Café Tour Kickoff Presented by Wellness®

Join the Orlando Cat Cafe on March 23rd from 6:30 pm -8:00 pm as we help kick-off the CatWise Cat Café Tour presented by Wellness® featuring America’s Favorite Cat Expert and Best Selling Author, Pam Johnson-Bennett. Pam will be traveling across the country and stopping at some of the greatest pet loving cat cafes to share her brand new book, CatWise.

Pet parents with burning questions about their cat’s behavior can visit Pam at the tour stop nearest them for a Q&A with the cat behaviorist and pick up a copy of CatWise to learn more. Wellness® Natural Pet Food will also be providing raffles and fun freebies for attendees.

Pam Johnson-Bennett is the best-selling author of 10 books, including the brand new release, CatWise (Penguin Books, 2016). Pam’s best-selling book, Think Like a Cat (Penguin Books), changed the way cat owners view cat training and has been referred to as the “cat bible” by veterinarians, shelters, behavior professionals and cat owners world-wide. Her book, Cat vs. Cat (Penguin Books), was the first of its kind to address the unique needs of households with multiple cats. In addition, Pam hosted the Nat Geo Wild/Animal Planet show Psycho Kitty, which aired in the UK and Canada. With a career that spans over 30 years, she is considered a pioneer in the field of cat behavior consulting and her books have been used as texts for professional behavior and shelter training.

The CatWise Cat Café Tour presented by Wellness® has one very important mission to fulfill: to give back to animals in need. Orlando Cat Café has partnered with The Animal League and adoptable cats will be available at the event. In its role as presenting sponsor, Wellness® Natural Pet Food will be donating 1000 meals to The Animal League to help provide cats with natural nutrition while they wait to be adopted. Wellness® Natural Pet Food crafts its recipes with carefully sourced, thoughtfully prepared ingredients to make every mealtime count—for pets at home and those in need.
