MACH (Mistymagic Blueberry Mach) is an eight-year-old Blue Point Birman.
As he is very people orientated and also a complete lap cat, I decided to register him with Pets As Therapy. He passed his assessment with flying colours and we have been visiting Blackwater Mill Retirement Home near Newport on the Isle of Wight since last October.
Mach enjoys his ‘work’ and took to a harness with no problem at all. The carers at Blackwater Mill get just as much pleasure out of Mach’s visits as the residents do and they remark that it’s lovely to see some of them talking about their past pets when we visit. Pets As Therapy really does benefit so many people.
The photograph shows Mach at ‘work’ with Joyce and Bert, residents at Blackwater Mill; they both love him to bits.
