Nick and Annie were warm and kind and welcomed us as you would a good friend despite having only lost their beloved 17 yr old cat Neesha that morning

Sadly our sit with Nick and Annie never took place due to Corona virus restrictions. We do however hope to sit with them when they next plan a break
