Our very own Cassie the Cat is the unofficial mascot of the Children’s Acute Transport Service. Cassie is given free by the CATS charity to all seriously ill children transported to specialist hospitals by CATS’ specialist ambulance fleet.

Conjoined Sudanese twins Rital and Ritag are introduced to twin Cassie the Cats toys by their father Abdulmajeed. Congratulations from Get Well Friends to everyone involved in this miraculous operation.
