One friendly feline brought a smile to patients' faces at The Royal London Hospital last week.
London the cat is a Pets As Therapy cat who visits patients to help them feel better.
London’s owner Isobel said: “I’m always looking for different things to do with my cat. That’s how I found Pets As Therapy, through browsing on the internet. I thought it was a wonderful activity to do together and to give back at the same time.
"For me, the biggest reward is the smiles.
"The expression “London made my day” is something we hear regularly. London provides an escape to what the patient is going through. It triggers a conversation about their pets, on how much they miss them and how special they are in our life. He brings joy to the family and friends of the patients."
