I don't know if I told you that my Dad is in a nursing home now. He stayed at home with a sitter until it was physically impossible. This is a wonderful place and this is one of the pets that is allowed to roam around-I think this is wonderful, I know I would miss my animals if I was away from my home.
They also have fish tanks and of course lots of bird feeders outside the windows. I know not all nursing homes are this nice-wish they were. I think my Dad is happy here though he is getting more confused. I think it helps that his sitter from home still goes and stays with him for a while each day and family drops in every day.I am three hours away and working different hours every day so I don't get to go too often,but I don't worry that he is ok now.
