Loving tuxedo cat Schnookums has had a profound impact on the lives of vulnerable psychiatric patients since her owner Laxmi Kathuria took her to visit a hospital ward.

As a psychiatrist, Laxmi was thrilled to see the positive effect Schnookums had. She says: “Where words fall short, a purr soothes away the pain.”

Schnookums is one of the Most Incredible Story category finalists in the Cats Protection UK National Cat Awards sponsored by Verdo Cat Litter.
