The ‘Purrfect’ Valentine’s Day

Dave the Care Home cat had the ‘purrfect’ Valentine’s Day with his favourite kitty

Dave lives at the Edensor Care Home in Clacton on Sea and was introduced to the home when a resident asked for a cat that she could love and care for. Since Dave joined the home as a kitten in 2021, he has made a huge difference to the lives of the residents and spreads love throughout the home.

Recently the residents noticed that Dave was getting a regular daily visit  from a female Kitty and true to form she arrived to see her beau on Valentine’s Day.

Lindsey Miliken, Deputy Home Manager, Edensor Care Centre,  said, “Dave has a very special place in everyone’s hearts. He is a real character who likes to be involved in every aspect of life at the home. He especially likes to join in with the crafts and help in the office and he has made an amazing difference to life here. The residents recently noticed that  Dave was getting a regular visit from a beautiful female cat and sure enough on Valentine’s Day morning she appeared in the garden to meet with her ‘purrfect’ beau.”

Let’s hope there will be a very happy end to this feline love story.
