Last week, I wrote I devoted my blog to "cats for emotional support to nursing home residents" and detailed a few of my experiences. If you missed it, you can read it right here. I talked about Lucky (pictured above) and what a wonderful "therapy pet" she was, always calm, quiet and appreciative of any and all attention. And who could resist that cute little face with such an intelligent expression! She was a rock star when I tied a little blue scarf around her neck and took her for visits.
Here is Shadow, another calm cat. I could pick him up and he would immediately snuggle next to me, purring happily.
I hope some of you have been inspired to visit nursing homes and assisted living facilities with your cat (or dog) and here are a few tips I've picked up along the way.
