Fidget the cat is joining us just in time for our Charity Partnership with AFC Bournemouth, and will be attending their home games this season!


The name Fidget was chosen from lots of wonderful suggestions received from our service users.

The decision to have a cat as our mascot was influenced by the book ‘All cats have Asperger Syndrome’ which draws inspiration from the feline world and brings to life familiar characteristics of individuals with Asperger’s, a form of autism. 

These characteristics include sensitive hearing, particular eating habits, and scampering away at the first sign of being stroked. The book is a light-hearted introduction into what life can be like for some people with a diagnosis.


We are looking for volunteers to wear Fidget during the AFC Bournemouth Home matches; if this is something you would be interested in, click here!
