A large gray cat sits perkily in front of the hospital. An old woman comes up to him and strokes him. A tall man calls out for him. A little girl lures him with a treat. The cat is present every day, quietly looking around, winking. Since he first came, it’s hard to imagine the hospital without him. He is subject of conversation, makes people smile and offers consolation. ‘He’s a bit of a mascot for me’ says one woman as she lights her cigarette, ‘If he is there, I’m fine’.
