Nursing Home Therapy Cat Snoopy is Here to Stay!
Claiming that the negative media coverage and a deluge of phone calls had nothing to do with their decision, the Windsong Care Center announced today that Snoopy the Cat may continue to live at the facility. (Thank you to all the Cat’s Meow readers who telephoned or wrote letters in support of Snoopy.)
Cuyahoga County’s Public Animal Welfare Society will be drawing up a legal agreement to ensure that Snoopy will not face eviction in the future. ”We are getting the agreement together. I don’t want this to happen again with this management or the next one,” said Amy Beichler, PAWS’ executive director.
Snoopy has happily resided at the facility since he was a kitten ten years ago. When cat lover Johanna Shapiro, who suffers from MS, moved into the facility six years ago, Snoopy took up residence in her room. Snoopy has been instrumental in helping Johanna battle the loneliness and depression that accompanies her disease.
When a new administration took over the facility in January, they gave Shapiro two weeks to relocate Snoopy. Click here for the full story.
