We all know that kittens can sometimes be just what the doctor ordered. So when a shelter in Kansas heard from GC Hospice that they had a resident whose only wish was to snuggle some kittens, they couldn't say no.

Carol is a hospice resident at Groves Community Hospice and has always had a deep love for cats and kittens. When staff asked what she wished to have, her answer was that she wanted to snuggle some kittens.

The orderlies knew that they had to make Carol’s wish come true to soothe her in her ailment, so they called the one place they knew had loads of kittens - the Great Plains SPCA in Merriam Kansas. The shelter was more than happy to help the ailing lady in her wish.

What both the hospice and their patient didn’t know is that the shelter didn’t bring just one kitten for Carol. They actually brought a basket full of different kittens, which brought a big smile to Carol’s face.

As Carol held one the kittens in her arms, another one crawled up on her shoulder and lay there. “They are precious…He’s adorable," said the overjoyed woman as she played with the kitties.

Kittens make the best gift for anyone, young or old. So don’t hesitate to visit your local shelter, where you can search for the perfect gift for someone you love.

    God Bless this dear lady and God Bless those kittens, the people that bought them, and her family that allowed them to come to bring them. There should be more people like this in the world.
