"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Free of their confines, a litter of kittens chase each other around as their cage is cleaned. Looking to be held they find Ellie Bishop, vet tech and intake supervisor, and rub up against her leg.
She takes the hint and picks two of them up and lets them climb all over her jacket. Purring loudly, they curl up in her arms. "This is the best part of my job," she says.
