Ever take a photo of your adorable snoozing cat and forget to turn the flash off?
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.”

A very irate Iroh would like to have a serious word with Dante Basco and Bryke, it seems.
Despite being promised yet denied the presence of this dashing general, LoK Book 3’s finale was epic beyond proportions. The emotional stake was that much higher than Book 2 and it was so wonderful to see how far all the characters had come. One of my favourite bits was Su and Lin’s sisterly moment before taking down P’li. And of course, Jinora getting her tattoos, Bolin lavabending and all the airbenders working together as one.
In any case, I was disappointed Iroh was a no-show. However, it seems he’ll have at least a small role in Book 4, if not more, so this fangirl is content to wait.
And even though I sketch this man far too much, it gave me some great anatomy and expression practice. So hooray for that.
