Cats and care home residents make purrfect friends
CARE home residents enjoyed a close encounter with cats at a Sheffield café – bringing back memories of their own kitties.
Several residents living at The Laurels Care Home, on Manchester Road, made a trip into the city centre to visit Tabby Teas Cat Café, on Cemetery Road.
The elderly visitors made lots of furry friends while enjoying a cuppa, stroking the cats and feeding them treats.
Resident Edith Keech said: “I had a black cat for 11 years. We named him Kilty as he was a Scot and it stuck.
“It’s been lovely to see all of the moggys here. They’ve brought back lovely memories.”
Jo MacGregor, activities coordinator at The Laurels Care Home, said: “Everyone enjoyed giving the cats lots of treats and fusses as they relaxed with a cuppa. And they were amazed at how friendly they all were.
“A huge thank you to the staff at Tabby Teas, who made our visit even more enjoyable.”
The Laurels Care Home is part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit www.hillcare.net.
