Furry Feline has Taken Residence in Wailuku


Keoki, also known as George or Jorge, is a recent addition to Hale Makua Wailuku’s community. He is a large white cat who chose to adopt the nursing office as his home. Staff and residents have found Keoki to be very friendly; he loves being held and petted. In the photo resident Midori Hayashido holds him while sending a shaka sign to the camera. Midori broke into a smile as soon as she saw Keoki and reached to hold him. 

This story illustrates Eden Principle #2: “An Elder-centered community commits to creating a human habitat where life revolves around close and continuing contact with plants, animals, and children. It is these relationships that  provide the young and old alike with a pathway to a life worth living.”
