Beth Roberts, a cat foster parent, was heading into the Greater Birmingham Humane Society Tuesday morning to have her current litter of kittens immunized. But the sight she encountered at the desk stopped her in her tracks. A grieving woman was sobbing, telling her cat goodbye.
“This woman was hurting, and it made me hurt. I was so sad to see this, and felt tears filling my eyes. I walked over to her and gave her a hug.”
