Activity Ideas:

  • Using the spare pouch, play a guessing game by placing items inside the bag for the person to feel and guess what it is (teaspoon, comb, toothbrush, pine cone).
  • Provide a soft brush nearby to allow the person using Billy to brush his fur. The rythmic action can be calming.
  • Gather some pictures of different cats (different breeds, lion, tiger, lynx, Tom & Jerry, Sylvester) and talk about them. YOu could involve Billy by asking if Billy would want to be friends with any of them, scared of, laugh at etc.
