Cats Program On July 9 At 4-H Animal Group Meeting

Monday, July 1, 2019

On July 9 at 5:30 p.m., Dr. Jim Hammon of Northgate Animal Hospital will present a program on cats at the meeting of the 4-H Companion Animal Project Group. Hamilton County youths ages nine to 19 (in fourth through 12th grade) are invited to attend and learn about cat care and behavior. The Pet Placement Center will bring cats to the program for the participants to meet. 
 
The 4-H Companion Animal Project group meets monthly at the UT/TSU Extension – Hamilton County office, and there is no cost to join or to attend meetings. Parents/guardians are welcome to attend meetings with their youths. 4-H enrollment is available at the door. There is no cost to join 4-H, and Hamilton County youths in grades four to 12 can join 4-H at any time.
 
Dr. Jim Hammon was a member of the very first veterinary class graduating from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville in 1979 and has practiced veterinary medicine in Chattanooga since 1982. Dr. Hammon is a certified veterinary journalist and serves on the board of certification of the American Society of Veterinary Journalists. Along with his brother, Randy Hammon, he appears each month on WRCB TV’s “3 Plus You” show to discuss pet topics.

"Hamilton County youth who are interested in learning about cat care and cat behavior are encouraged to come and join the July 9 seminar," organizers said.  "4-H is open to everyone, and participating in the Companion Animal Project Group is a great way to learn about the opportunities available to youth through 4-H." The Companion Animal Project Group is part of the 4-H Citizenship Club and meets once a month at the Extension office, 6183 Adamson Circle (right next door to the Hamilton County Tag & Title office off Bonny Oaks Dr.).  For more information, call the Extension office at 423-855-6113.
