Re: Therapy Chickens bring joy to Aged Care Home

They tried having a small resident dog or cat present (esp in the geriatrics ward where the dementia people are) but the staff found taking care of a litterbox/ taking the dog outside a few times a day way "simply too much work".
So the few very lucky elderly around here borrow their neighbours cat who just loves being on the lap of anyone sitting still long enough.

(and I am sooo going to be dead before ever entering one of those places if I ever have anything to say about it)
