An HC-One care home has enabled a resident to live with her beloved cat of 13 years after fears they may be separated.
Beryl, a resident at Berry Hill Park Care Home had her world turned upside down when her partner of 30 years passed away in January. The 81-year-old was forced to relocate 75 miles to Mansfield, Nottinghamshire to be closer to her sister, but was faced with the prospect of being separated from her cat George.
Beryl’s sister contacted Berry Hill Park Care Home in Mansfield, which was pleased to accommodate both Beryl and George.
Sally Tebbett, Berry Hill Park Care Home manager describes how both Beryl and George are now settling in perfectly to their new surroundings.
She says: “We’re so pleased to have welcomed both Beryl and George into the home, they’ve adapted to their new surroundings quickly and are fitting in perfectly.
“They have a beautiful bond and we’re proud to have kept that, ensuring they both live a happy and fulfilled life.”
Beryl says: “We have to be together because George needs me and I need him. Nobody loves me like he loves me.
“It's great that I’m sharing this story as hopefully more cats will move into the home and George will have more friends."
