This is very nice. The dynamics of being at an airport change instantly when you have a therapy cat padding around waiting to meet and greet and be stroked and admired.

At Denver Airport, there is a group of dogs called CATS! This is an acronym for Canine Airport Therapy Squad. The squad has acquired a cat, Xeli. CATS is designed to relieve traveller stress at the airport. Nice. I am always stressed at airports until I am in or near the departure lounge and the aircraft is out on the tarmac warming up.
