ROUND ROCK, Texas — The senior residents at Poet’s Walk Round Rock — a memory care facility — have opened their home to some furry friends.
Four 4-week-old kittens — Betsy, Brenda, Bailey and Brian — made their way over to Poet’s Walk from the Williamson County Humane Society to spend quality time with the seniors.

Working closely with the WCHS, Poet’s Walk said the seniors will be fostering the kittens who were abandoned by their mother.
The kittens get showered with love while bringing joy to the seniors. It’s a win-win!
“Feeding the kittens brings tears of joy to my eyes and it gives me so much happiness to do this,” said senior resident Gail Burke.
It’s safe to say they make purr-fect friends.
According to Poet’s Walk, the kittens have made the facility their home for two weeks and will remain there for three more weeks until they are adopted.
