Cats and Prisoners Give Each Other a Second Chance

Cats and prisoners are “getting a second chance thanks to a special program at a Washington prison.”

Outside of prison…Princess Natalie was facing death row.

Working through a cat rescue organization called “Cuddly Catz” out of Vancouver, specially screened offenders without a violent history and good behavior have been trained by volunteers to care for the cats and work on their behavior.

The goal is to get cats like Princess Natalie ready for adoption outside of prison.

    Great Program, but, the story was poorly shot.

    That’s awesome!

    I love programs like this. Love love love them. Taking what could (and usually is) a hardening and wasted experience and benefiting the community is fantastic.

    That’s plain awesome! Great idea, I’m supporting it 100%!

    Anything that will increase the amount of love and gentleness in these guys’ hearts (and in the cats’ lives, too) is just wonderful.

    The telly show Must Love Cats featured another cat programme too, likely at another facility. The programme was also slightly different. The positivity generated in the men caring for the cats were the same. Great idea!!!

    This is great! Cats help bring out the best in these people, and their lives are saved in the process. This program should be expanded!

    Most people that are in U.S prisons are not there for violent crimes. Most of these people are not “evil” as society tries to portray them, and this program proves that even prisoners have big hearts as any good free person.
