TINY kittens stole the limelight at a children's education workshop at the RSPCA Qld Wacol shelter.

Children who attended the Feline Friends class on Wednesday were allowed to pat and feed the surrendered baby animals, which helped to drive home the importance of respecting and caring for animals.

Many of the feline fans had or wanted cats of their own, and were eager to learn how to care for the popular pets.

Feline Friends educators also explained how cats communicate with people, and how to interpret behaviour.

More workshops will be on offer next week, including:

  • Canine Carers, next Tuesday, 1.30pm-3.30pm for children aged six to 10.
  • Feline Friends, next Thursday, 1.30pm-3.30pm for children aged 11 to 15.
  • Wild for Wildlife, next Friday, 9.30am-11.30am for children aged six to 10.
  • Wildlife Crusaders, next Friday 25/1, 9.30am-11.30am for children aged 11 to 15.

All workshops cost $25 and bookings are essential.

Phone 3258 5616 to book a place at a workshop.

The RSPCA Qld Wacol shelter is at 139 Wacol Station Rd.
