Archie the kind, hospital cat

A child with curly hair stands next to seat where Archie, a ginger cat, is sitting, so they are eye to eye looking at each other affectionately. Archie is wearing a blow up pink collar.

When Dawn was waiting in A&E for over 5 hours while in a lot of pain, she was thrilled to meet Archie, a cat who visits the hospital to comfort patients.

Dawn shared her story with me “I was in so much pain due to gallstones but then we got a visit from the famous Archie who is a local ginger tom cat who visits hospital regularly to comfort the patients and staff.

I believe he does it out of kindness plus he loves attention and cuddles!

It was such a lovely thing to see a packed room all happy to see a cat and it helped me forget about my pain.

It reminded me that animals are capable of great acts of kindness πŸ±πŸˆπŸΎπŸ˜ΊπŸˆβ€β¬›.”

Archie even has his own Facebook group created by his family where the photos with this post were shared so if you want some extra kindness and joy on your Facebook feed, go and join it!
