Peruvian nurse cares for 175 sick cats
At her job, Maria Torero cares for sick human beings. At home, she lavishes love on slowly dying cats — 175 of them at last count.
The 45-year-old nurse has turned her two-story, eight-room apartment into a hospice for cats with feline leukemia, scattering it with scores of feeding dishes and at least two dozen boxes litter boxes.
Some have suggested she shelter healthy cats instead. “That’s not my role,” she told The Associated Press. “I’m a nurse. My duty is to the cats that nobody cares about.” She said that “people don’t adopt adult cats, especially if they are terminally ill.”

God bless you and your beautiful soul :’)
The first squeeze of grave will make you forget every warm hug you had in your life.
I used to complain about not having many friends, but I realized nothing but headaches & heartbreaks comes from having too many people around
"When I young I was veryy handsome. All the women fall right for me. Now become old, even wife have enough. But at least she still laugh at my jokes.. and that is all an old man want."
Does anyone else lie in bed at 2:30am filled with the crippling fear that they’re never going to accomplish anything in life and fail miserably or is that just me
how do people even put up with me like i cant even put up with me
