When Oreo the cat started showing up at St. Augustine Healthy Ministries, the friendly stray decided then and there that the retirement center was home. Every day, Oreo would hang around outside, sitting with residents as they waited for rides.

Years ago I was adopted by a stray cat. She was my constant companion for a long time. Rest in peace, Ragamuffin.

Cats or other animals that visit nursing homes, are so welcome!
Brings joy to the residents. Shame that they can't own pets either!

Thanks, Barb xo
