I love visiting the care home!
If you’ve read my book, you’ll have noticed that some of the cartoons relate to me visiting a care home.
In real life, I do visit a care home every fortnight: I visit the lovely residents at Anne Maree Court in Northcote. They always give me such lovely pats and chin rubs (as do the staff!). I love it!
I visit the care home with my mum: we’ve been volunteering for Outreach Therapy Pets for about 2 years now. I had to pass a behaviour test, and mum had to attend some training. We both wear matching uniforms which is very cool.
Mum keeps our uniforms in a special bag at home: I know that we’re going to Anne Maree Court as soon as mum gets the bag out! I do a big happy dance when mum opens the bag. I can’t wait to get brushed and wear my bowdanna. Then I leap into the car, and am raring to go!
Here are some photos of mum and I visiting Anne Maree Court visit last week. Thank you very much to Cherry for letting me use the photos – and for the lovely pats you gave me!
Ann Maree Court is a pet-friendly care home. That means that there are some cats around… and that is why mum holds me. If I see the cats, I do just want to chase them. And mum is worried that I might scratch the care home residents so she keeps hold of me. Spoil sport!
I don’t mind too much though, as mum usually has some treats in her pocket.
I am already looking forward to my next Outreach Therapy Pets visit at Anne Maree Court!
Love ‘n’ licks,
