According to a recent survey, there are 86.4 million cats and 78.2 million dogs in homes across the country, with many families enjoying the company of both cats and dogs. This kit includes information about the characteristics, behavior, and needs of cats, especially those awaiting adoption in animal shelters. It features two sets of fun activities for grades PreK-6 and 7-12, and presents grade-appropriate information about feline issues from overpopulation to declawing. Educators can use this kit in conjunction with the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum and its ancillary programs or as a freestanding program in schools, YMCAs, afterschool programs, and summer camps. Live animals are not necessary for successful implementation.
