Willie Ortiz has dedicated his life to caring for the stray cats in Hartford, Connecticut. Last year a friend helped him set up a GoFund me account to help pay for their care. When it went viral on Reddit, he raised more money than he could have ever imagined!

    God bless Willie Ortiz for caring enough to make a difference. This man is my hero and I pray it continues even after he can no longer help them.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
