Yesterday two of my favorite things in the world came together in a sweet way!

Every year in May my boss and I have the privilege of helping prepare our Salvation Army officers-in-training – also called cadets – for their future roles as media spokespersons for our ministry.

According to WebMD, petting a cat or dog can help lower your blood pressure and relieve stress!

So, feeding and petting 4-week-old kittens is the perfect way to reduce stress during midterm week at the Salvation Army’s college.

Here’s a slideshow of images of the cadet-kitten love fest!
