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.

The day before our training, the leaders of our training college (seminary school) invited me to bring my four foster kittens from Stray Cat Alliance so the students could get their cat fix.

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!
