This was my feel good story for the day - maybe for the last several days. I know Alfie has joined Roadie, Madi, Homer, and my kitties in a happy place. Thank you for this story.

Alfie did what cats and dogs do that people often can not, provide uncompromising love to those in need. Bless his heart.

Animals show so much compassion and the people in this hospital realize they were blessed to have Alfie. The people the torture and kill cats and dogs, I wish they know how much love they could of had, instead of killing them.
