    Thanks JK and PG for your responses. It’s good to see that there are caring people in the world. Of course with TDKers it’s a natural trait!

    Crissy had a degree in social work and worked in a homeless shelter among the toughest clientele – a shelter that accepted people who were intoxicated with alcohol, drugs or both (I have a friend who works in a homeless shelter and you have to be tough as well as caring for such a job). Alas she was not the only victim who worked in a caring profession. Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, working in London, actually ran towards the attack to help victims and was killed herself. I believe that some of the paramedics were also injured, as was a man with training in martial arts who tried to overcome the terrorists.

    Funny, Crissy and Kirsty are very similar names, and they were about the same age.

    “She’s not just an ordinary cat, she’s a member of our family,” one of her owners, Brigitte Olavarria, told HuffPost. “She has a big personality and it doesn’t go unnoticed”.

    I loved that and sent it to friends. She put up with that indignity with great … dignity, since a 15-year-old cat is far from adolescence. They enjoyed the fluffy story after such horrible news everywhere.
