Some comments from our visitors book:

Hilary’s poem:

“Fingers clenched

Breath shallow

Shoulders hunched

Complexion sallow
Fingers uncurl

Lungs fill with air

Posture relaxes

Skin now looks fair
His fingers now moving, stroking the fur He sits up and takes notice, if he could, he would purr A light in the darkness, when no question is asked At peace with himself, no need for the mask.”

“I work on a brain injury unit and we’ve had Nuzzlets visit us three times over the past year. Each visit has brought so many smiles to the faces of the residents here, it’s truly a joy to see. It goes miles beyond what any other activity achieves in terms of the atmosphere during and after a visit from the fluffy animals. Never underestimate the power of animal therapy and the benefits one sees in such an environment.”
