When Sheila Marsh, 77, was dying of cancer recently, she had one last
wish -- to see her horses one more time. The staff at the Royal Albert
Edward Infirmary in Wigan, U.K. worked to arrange a visit for her from

Rest in peace Colonel Meow. Move over Grumpy Cat. Garfi, the angriest cat in the world, is here!
