Guardian Whiskers Community Programs & Events
Kiddos & Kitties | Madison-Area Literacy Program
Kiddos & Kitties Reading Program is an irresistible way to encourage literacy among children. We hope our program stirs up excitement for reading among kids (and pets) in the Madison community.
Research shows our relationship with pets improves human health and quality of life. The sound of a child’s reading voice comforts our kid-loving cats too!
Guardian Whiskers is looking for kitties who love kiddos. Contact us if you know just the cat, and we’ll send you more information.
Taradiddle Young Writer Contests
Taradiddle is a youth writing program we created in 2019. The contests inspire youth ages 9-18 to write with fun animal-themed story prompts.
We utilize the magic of the human-animal bond to improve youth literacy and writing skills on an exciting, supportive platform. Learn to love writing with the support of this encouraging animal-positive organization.
Write original stories inspired by Taradiddle animal-themed writing contest prompts. Enter for a chance to win prizes and become a published young author!
Katarina Luther, DVM Founder of Guardian Whiskers Inc.
As a child, Katarina Luther was the student who begged to take home the classroom bird or guinea pig during breaks and was the first whom neighbors would call for pet sitting while on vacation. Her draw to caring for animals naturally led her to jobs such as pet store help, polo horsegroom, veterinary assistant, dairy farm crew, and even a snail colony manager in a research lab.
