This is the sweetest picture I’ve seen lately. We all know how strict hospitals can be about anything out of the ordinary, but one hospital made an exception — and it made a world of difference to a dying woman.
This picture was posted by a guy on Reddit. His grandmother is in a hospital dying, and the hospital allowed the family to bring her cat in for a visit. I think it’s pretty clear how happy both of them are to see each other.
Those who don’t have animals probably don’t understand. I didn’t grow up with cats and dogs, so I wouldn’t have understood at one time, either. But there’s a special kind of love that develops between pets and people. I know that if I were dying, I’d like to be surrounded by my furry friends.
I’m happy that this hospital allowed the cat to come visit, and I’m happy that the family shared the picture.
Note: If you’d like to meet some of my cats (many still with me and a few departed ones), you can read about Henry, Oliver, Sam, Amelia, Thomas, William, Dagny, Merlin, Charlotte, Emily, Anne, Molly and Bessie. And if you’d like, you can meet some of their canine friends over the years — Maggie, Lucy, Alex and Munchkin.
