A new program that pairs experienced cats with troubled kittens has been lauded as a breakthrough for feline social services.

“The CatMatch mentorship has had a great start, and we’re already seeing positive results,” says program manager Wendy Holmes. “Kitten grades are up, detention rates are down, and the mentors are reporting a real sense of purpose and fulfillment.”

Holmes tells The Fluffington Post that they hope to expand the program this winter, pending funds from local municipalities and private donations.
