Meet Zen and Zora

Zen and Zora are therapy cats at Solace Counseling and coaching. They are both beloved members of our team and the Trost family and play an important role in helping our clients feel comfortable and supported.

Zen is a 2-year-old grey tabby cat who has been with us since we opened our doors in 2022. He is a self-proclaimed “boundary coach” and is known for letting you know when he doesn’t like something. But don’t let that fool you – Zen is also very loving and affectionate. He loves to greet clients in the hallway and curl up on the end of the sofa near them during sessions.

Zora is a calico/tortico kitten and a therapy cat in training. She is Zen’s best friend and they do just about everything together. Zora loves snuggles, being held like a baby, and is very sweet. She is still learning how to be a therapy cat, and when the ‘zoomies’ take over, we usually put her in the other room, but she is already a natural at making people feel loved and cared for.

Both Zen and Zora are available to clients during sessions, if they wish. Some clients find that having a cat in the room helps them to feel more relaxed and comfortable. Others enjoy the companionship and unconditional love that Zen and Zora offer.

If you are interested in having Zen or Zora join your session, please let your therapist know. They are always happy to see new faces!
