Inmate Richard Amaro walks Clementine at Larch Correctional Facility April 20 in Yacolt, Wash. The Cuddly Catz program at the Larch Correctional Facility, a minimum-security prison, is several months old, but inmates say they’ve already noticed a difference in the cats and themselves. The program began in cooperation with a local animal shelter. It has grown to include two cats and four inmates, and the prison plans to add four more cats.
