Multiple studies have proven that pet therapy is a valuable tool for productivity, relaxation and overall well-being. In light of this information, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is opening a “Kitten Room” in the library.

Some of the stress of heading to the library to study can now be alleviated – UTC is proud to offer its students, faculty and staff a “Kitten Room”.

The room will feature dozens of kittens from various shelters around town, as well as play equipment for the kittens. Groups of no more than 20 students, faculty, and staff will be allowed into the room for 30 minute periods. This room will be shared by all, and we want to make sure everyone has a chance to de-stress with some kitten playtime!

The room is free and available to all students, faculty and staff. The kittens will also be available for adoption!

While this news sounds pretty awesome to most, we are actually… just kidding. Check your calendar folks – Happy April Fools Day! 😜

  1. I am so disappointed. I was really looking forward to #KittenTherapy on Monday, after a stressful week. But it’s OK, I have 2 kittens of my own, so I’ll make do until this UTC Kitten Room is reality. Can I register my favorite cat as a service animal?

    Honestly that is the meaning thing anyone has ever done to me. I will never go to the library again.

  3. Samuel Clark says:

    This is pure evil. Nothing but contempt for the library now

  4. Camil Coleman says:

    Disappointed and now very sad. I got soooo excited. I would love have something like this place for students to unplug from studies and relieve some stress. I would have love to adopt a kitten as well.
