This is so sweet, good for the oldies and for the kitties. We had several dogs at the care home where I used to work and they were very much loved by the people there. Have a good week, hugs, Valerie
I think all nursing homes need pets in them.Hope you're having a great day, Val.Hugs,
I so enjoyed this thank you for sharing Sandra.I’ve tagged you in the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers award. Joining in is entirely optional, and I completely understand if you don’t have the time to get involved. I must admit it took me some time to get to it, but once I did I had fun.
Thank you, Barbara. I appreciate you thinking of me:)
And saving Seniors with the help of the Kittens. Win/win.
I so agree with Elephant's child's comment. Studies show anyone who pets an animal lowers their heart rate, so both the kittens and seniors benefit here.
Indeed, Elizabeth. The kittens need rescued and love. And the seniors need love and something to love.
What a great idea. I'd say that's salvation for both.
Well said, Alex.
Good therapy for all involved
It sure is, Steve.
Oh how sweet!
The seniors seem very happy to be able to cuddle a little one and be needed don't they?
That is great indeed. Awesome for both.
It sure is, Pat.
Lovely story. When my mother was in the nursing home, one of the residents carried around a baby doll. I thought Ma would enjoy one, too, so gave her one for Christmas. She loved to hold and talk to her baby. I think she went back in time to when she was a young mother with The Brother and me.
Awww. What a great thing to do for your mom.
Isn't it great, Jamie?
This touched my heart because it helps the kittens but also the older people. My mom always carries a teddy bear with her now and another lady has a doll. I think if this was introduced, it would awaken some of the people in the long term care places and make them feel bette. Many are depressed and just sit there in the lounge with the TV on. I wish more places would do this.
It's heart breaking to see seniors grouped together and no interaction. I agree. All long term care centers need animals.
What a wonderful thing for the seniors and cats.
My heart is melting!
guys...how total lee kewl iz thiz !!!!!!!! like mega bazillion awesum lee kewl .....we loves it ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

This is such a wonderful idea! To give and receive the gift of love!
I hope every long term care unit will incorporate it. It really helps the seniors.
This is brilliant ...A win for both seniors and kittens.All the best Jan
It is indeed a win for both, Jan.
Good to see, with both the cat and the people benefiting.
It sure is.
that's so wonderful.
I love this so much!!! More things like this should be done for animals and our seniors!! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful story Sandra! Hugs!
