Students cuddle cats to relieve stress during finals week

Students at MSU took a few minutes to cuddle with cats during an otherwise busy finals week.

DENVER — A group of college students at Metropolitan State University took a break from studying for finals Thursday to hang out and relax with some adorable baby kittens.

The Feline Fix and Metro Denver C.A.T. teamed up to bring seven-week-old kittens to the school’s Biology Department to provide some relief during a notoriously stressful time.

Students stopped by in small groups to pet and cuddle four kittens named after Charlie’s Angels characters – Bosley, Jill, Kelly and Sabrina.

“Typically the kittens are rescued off the streets, but these guys happen to come from a pregnant cat that Metro Denver C.A.T. rescued,” Stacey Baum with The Feline Fix said.

Both groups focus on getting tame, feral, and free roaming cats the services they need to find happy homes.

All four cats during Thursday’s cat therapy session will be available for adoption once they are 12 weeks old, are spayed or neutered, and have all their shots, Baum said.
