Cockroach therapy. by johnnythemonkey on 18 August 2010 12:49am
This is a relatively new charity that's been set up to take cockroaches to visit childrens wards and nursing homes. It takes tame roaches to visit the kids ( some owners even put little masks etc on their pets, LOL, bless them. )
The idea of the therapy is to put these kids and old folk at ease around cockroaches and to demonstrate their friendliness and easy nature ( through stroking and petting. )

This has been proven through the testimony of many healthcare professionals, to enable the clients to return home and live in harmony with cockroaches.

Please lend any support you can to this worthwhile cause.

I'll donate some cockroach bait.

Well, with rogue countries getting atomic bombs and the fact that cockroaches can survive nuclear war, I think it is a very good idea to make friends with cockroaches.

LOL! Be kind to your ugly cockroach pals, LOL! For they may be somebody's mother.

Is it true that Scottish cockroaches wear nothing under their kilts?
Re: Cockroach therapy. by johnnythemonkey on 28 August 2010 2:16am
We don't have cockroaches in Scotland.
We have midges......trillions of them.

If it's true, you've got to say, only in America?!
How about reconsidering spiders or snakes, some of which are very poisonous!?
I agree with peri. and kazzzz.
It only goes to show the type of stuff some of the press/media write to do a bit of scaremongering.

No, Ken - this has come from the imagination of Mr J. T. Monkey, in response to someone's comment about dogs being taken into hospitals etc. He is trying to belittle the work these dogs do (saying that they are a health risk etc.)


That's why I haven't bothered to comment before, but thought I ought to enlighten you.
