About the Cat Project
The Cat Project provide opportunities for youth to learn, practice and apply animal science knowledge, skills & abilities to prepare them for success in careers and life.
Colorado 4-H Livestock programs/projects place an emphasis on working respectfully, collectively and in a positive manner to achieve the youth development goals of the 4-H program. We strive to enable youth and adult volunteers to become responsible, self-directed and productive members of society, consistent with the goals and objectives of the National 4-H program.
4-H Livestock Program/Project goals and objectives include:
- Encourage participation through safe, inclusive learning environments by engaging youth through animal science-related activities.
- Enhance development of self-concept, character and personal growth through safe and educational animal related project and program opportunities.
- Teach safe, ethical and responsible care of animals.
- Promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship and ethical behavior.
- Expose participants to the broad array of vocational and life-long avocational activities related to animal ownership.
- Strengthen families though participation 4-H animal project activities.
Providing safe, inclusive environments is always a priority.

Record Books / e-Records
4-H Record Books are also called e-Records. Each project has its own record book that members are required to complete each year. Record books need to be checked a few times for progress throughout the year:
The Cat project uses the companion animal record books.
All project manuals are received through the Extension office. These will be distributed to 4-H members through their organizational leaders (club leaders) after enrollment is complete. For more information on enrollment visit Join 4-H.
