The Cat Immersion Tent For A Teen Cancer Patient That Restored Our Faith In Humanity


Maga is currently a patient at the Seattle Children’s Hospital. Due to her suppressed immunity, she can’t leave the hospital, and being an intense cat-lover, what she misses the most from the outside world is her feline friend Merry. But now, thanks to some ingenuity on the part of the hospital staff, her prolonged hospital stay took a turn for the better, and Maga is now able to enjoy cat contact from the comfort of her hospital bed: “We asked our Facebook fans to share their favorite cat photos with us, and got an awesome response — 3,000+ photos! We used these pictures to create this “cat immersion” for Maga — an audio/visual experience to bring thousands of “virtual” cats to Maga’s room.” Aww! Watch the video to see the cat immersion tent in action, but beware, it might kick up some dust in your room and make your eyes water.

    So sweet. I love my dog and cat so much, I can’t imagine not being able to see them! Well…and my husband.

    I have a fleece Beatles blanket exactly like hers. 

    I think kitty immersion needs to be available for everyone. That purring soundtrack was soooo soothing.

    Love her voice and her reaction to what they did for her. Can’t help but smile watching that video!
