Like I had never heard before: A dialysis rescue story

Temarie Lee's story:
About five years ago I went to the Humane Society. I stuck a finger in a cage to say "hi" to a chubby black cat. He took to me straight away!

Three years later, I had fallen asleep after dialysis, when my arm started bleeding. Tubbee put his front paws on my face and started meowing like I had NEVER heard before. He woke me up and I was able to stop the bleeding. Tubbee saved my life.
