A secondary benefit would be 'pet therapy' for the patients..

 

Why would you need cats for that?  Mice are therapy pets too.  In North America we have this weird, narrow concept of what constitutes acceptable "pets".   Where I'm from it's more broad and includes many more species, mammals and otherwise.  For example, at hospitals amphibians are great, because they can also help infirm patients in and out of the shower and bathtub.
