Cool Creatures presents Joseph the Meerkat

A TV star and his friends popped into Guthrie House Care Home in Edinburgh on Tuesday 4th October 2016 to help residents, their guests and the care team celebrate World Animal Day.

World Animal Day is celebrated on Tuesday 4th October each year and aims to raise the status of animals to improve their welfare standards around the globe, making the world a better place for animals.

Joseph the Meerkat, a stunt double for the insurance star Aleksander visited the home for lots of cuddles with other exotic friends from Cool Creatures.

Janet Decourt, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a lovely day and were all queuing up to cuddle Joseph. He was loving all of the attention and didn’t want to leave! The residents loved getting hands on with all of the creatures and finding out all there is to know about them.”
