Meet “QuaranTina”



So many of us take comfort in having pets.  We have dogs and cats…some of us birds or hamsters or even just having a fish can bring you comfort.  There’s something that feels really good about taking care of an animal.  Seniors are no different.  In the wake of the Covid-19 Crisis, we have had to cease our pet therapy.  Bryanna stumbled upon an unexpected comfort during our Health and Wellness Expo.

One of the vendors brought her electronic therapy cat. It moved, and breathed and purred.  It feels very real! I was amazed to see the curiosity of so many of our residents.  It sparks memories of pets they have had over the years, which in turn, sparks conversation.  

We ordered our very own therapy cat and she couldn’t have arrived at a better time.  She has fittingly been named Quarantina, or Tina for short.  It warmed my heart to see the residents interact with her. 

“I know she’s not real, but it just brings me such joy to hold her and listen to her purr.  She has no claws and you don’t have to feed her or clean her litter box”  

Tina will be a welcome addition to our Royal Brock family, she was definitely popular today!
