Saving shelter cats with a high-five

Imagine walking into a shelter to adopt a cat.
There are all sorts of kitties vying for your attention (or playing hard to get), but one particular feline comes up and gives you a high-five.
Of course you’re smitten, and that cat is yours for life.
The Jackson Galaxy Project, a charitable program of GreaterGood.org, created the Cat Pawsitive program because it believes a kitty handshake can seriously seal the adoption deal.
Cat Pawsitive teaches shelters across the country to train their adoptable cats tricks like how to give a high-five or a head bump.
Doing adorable tricks shows that they are likely to listen and bond with their owners.
Plus, it decreases their stress at the shelter by boosting their confidence.
