Veterinarian Dr. Susan Whittred joined us for the day to bring us some very special feline visitors. Dr. Whittred is the daughter of one of our residents, Lillian, and also runs the Patricia H. Ladew Foundation which is a no kill sanctuary for cats. The shelter, located in Oyster Bay, provides housing to homeless cats along with free sterilization and medical treatment. They then adopt the cats out to forever homes. Dr. Whittred also runs a program called the Seniors for Seniors Foundation. This program is geared toward senior citizens and senior cats. It is well known that pet owners often have lower blood pressure and fewer health problems. Just the smiles that these cats brought to us could make anyone feel better! We look forward to having Dr. Whittred bring her friends back in for another visit soon.
