Cats for comfort!

We enjoyed another visit from Cats for Comfort on Thursday 19th May.  Four cats visit each time so there are plenty of opportunities for us to have a cat on each of our laps.  The cats are wonderfully calm Maine Coon cats, a breed that is known to adapt easily to new people and new situations. The residents clearly enjoyed cuddling these big friendly fluffy cats judging by the smiles on everyone’s faces!

Edna painted several plastic fish before tackling the card wreath from which the fish will dangle from. Industrious painter!.. Rosemary enjoyed painting and expressed her delight “that turned out better than I thought”, and indeed what she painted was lovely.
