from Long Term Care Blog:
Saw an interesting article on pets in Long Term Care (LTC) facilities. Not just traditional birds, cats or dogs. They actually had a small Kangaroo hoping around free. You can not keep them off the couch either. He was actually wearing a diaper because you can not house break a Kangaroo. It is easy to housebreak a rabbit. Many clinical studies have shown that petting an animal actually reduces your stress and blood pressure!
