Today’s therapy cat visit was at the big hospital. As usual, my first stop was in Pediatrics. Only one patient was up to seeing me today, and it was a teen girl with her parents. The girl had all sorts of tubes going up her arm and nose, but she sat up and spent a lot of time with me. Her mom called her sister on her phone so she could see the visit. I could hear her sister squealing happily to see me.
The funny thing about this patient was that, since her dad is allergic, she has never spent quality time with a cat! She said she wasn’t even sure how to pet me (she did it perfectly). And she wanted to know about the noise I was making. “She’s purring,” my human told her.
The rest of the visits were good too. I stopped by the Resident Workroom to visit with one young doctor before stopping by the Cancer Center waiting room. Then I went up to Labor and Delivery. A couple of women wanted to see me. One of them was so happy I was there because she had a kitty at home that she missed. The nurses were also happy to see me, as they always are in this section of the hospital. I spend extra time with them always.
I had really nice visits.
