This week we're looking to hear your kindness stories and share them across the city.
Hayley Chandler, Peer Collaborative Coordinator at Health in Mind shared her story with us:
I decided to think about the kindness we can show animals by being mindful of them. I agreed to foster a cat as a favour to a friend a while before lockdown started, not knowing how much time we would be spending together and what a lifeline she would be. She was parachuted in (not literally, but almost - she was flown in from Dubai) the day lockdown started. She squeaks rather than meows when she wants food, to play or cuddles. It's been too sunny in the morning for me to work at my "desk" (dining table actually) but it's perfect for Bella’s sunbathing, snoozing and lounging on the cushions that I put out for her so that she can be comfortable.
We would love to hear your stories you can share them with us on twitter @EdinburghThrive or email us at email@example.com
