CARE home residents enjoyed a close encounter with cats at a Sheffield café – bringing back memories of their own kitties.

Several residents living at The Laurels Care Home, on Manchester Road, made a trip into the city centre to visit Tabby Teas Cat Café, on Cemetery Road.

The elderly visitors made lots of furry friends while enjoying a cuppa, stroking the cats and feeding them treats.

Resident Edith Keech said: “I had a black cat for 11 years. We named him Kilty as he was a Scot and it stuck.

“It’s been lovely to see all of the moggys here. They’ve brought back lovely memories.”

Jo MacGregor, activities coordinator at The Laurels Care Home, said: “Everyone enjoyed giving the cats lots of treats and fusses as they relaxed with a cuppa. And they were amazed at how friendly they all were.

“A huge thank you to the staff at Tabby Teas, who made our visit even more enjoyable.”
