This is Tom’s endearing tale, so read it now!
He is the one who ensures that everyone receives a lot of love rather than a lot of medication to make them feel better.
Tom was saved by palliative care coordinator Dorothy Rizzo from a nearby animal shelter a few years ago because she believed that having him about the hospital would help the doctors feel more secure, content, and comfortable in their last moments.
Tom’s presence also emits a good vibe that has a relaxing impact on these veterans.
Even when WWII veteran Edwin Gehlert took his last breaths, the orange tabby remained there. Tom had hopped onto his bed, snuggled up alongside him, and placed a fluffy orange to ensure he passed out comfortably.
