    Having bottle raised orphaned kittens for 30+ years now, i know how much work is involved and i am thrilled to see this.

    Maybe i can convince our shelter to start a similar program as we could always use more help.

    This news is very uplifting but I can’t help feeling like the newscasters were joking about it!!  Of course seniors and babies (human, kittens, puppies) would be helped by nurturing and being nurtured!  And of course the babies need the nurturing.  So do the older generation.  The only thing amazing about it as that stupid humans didn’t realize it sooner!!
