Stray cats in prison, this is the initiative for therapeutic purposes to help inmates and kittens in shelters. The Pendleton Correctional Facility in the state of Indiana is truly out of the ordinary.
Among the cells of this penitentiary, not only people who have to serve a sentence are welcomed, but also abandoned cats. The Animal Protection League promoted this experiment in 2015, as part of the F. O. R. W. A. R. D.
The aim is to bring prisoners closer to cats, encouraging them to take care of it. The initiative proved to be profitable for both bipeds and quadrupeds. It was a mutual way of being useful to others.
On the one hand, abandoned cats - which have often suffered trauma and abuse of all kinds, and are suspicious and not very inclined to socialization - learn to trust and receive love; on the other hand, the inmates understand what it means take care of someone, taking responsibility for it and receiving something special in return: the unconditional affection to which they are often not used.
It is not an isolated case
Actually of similar programs there are several in the US, including the one promoted by the Purrfect Pals association in the Monroe Correctional Complex-Special Offender Unit, where further benefits have been found.
Less idleness among inmates, improvement in self-esteem, respect for the rules of coexistence, cleanliness and hygiene. And as for the stray cats in prison, finally loved and considered, there has been an emotional improvement. Excellent results were also obtained with cats in class against anxiety.
These are also occasions in which it is possible to raise awareness and convince that the adoption is an act of love reciprocal, for those who welcome and those who are welcomed. Since the beginning of the program, the inmates have enrolled in school courses, have started working, are respectful of the rules of coexistence. The felines brought serenity and strengthened the team spirit. The idea therefore seems to be more than valid.
L' Catnip it is a perennial herbaceous plant, with a mint-like appearance and smell. Its scientific name is Nepeta cataria and it belongs to the family of Laminaceae , to which they also belong aromatic plants such as mint, sage, rosemary, oregano, thyme, marjoram and lemon balm.
A strange news story comes from Costa Rica , starring a cat arrested from Police . It may seem strange, yet it really is. Which is not so strange, given that there is also a precedent: in 2015 it was a pigeon to be arrested for helping prisoners.
