SEATTLE — When looking for a new furry friend, some people are hesitant to adopt because some shelter pets don't know how to interact with humans. 

Designed for 5-10-year-olds, Seattle Humane's Kitty Literature Program has helped socialize over 150 cats while also giving kids the opportunity to better their reading skills in a judgment-free environment. 

The cats become more comfortable with human interaction, therefore more adoptable, and the kids get better at reading aloud. It's a win-win of the cutest, cuddliest kind.  Seattle Humane Education Coordinator Heidi Muir is here to discuss the program and the benefits for both cats and kids.
