On Grey’s Anatomy: The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Teddy’s patient this week is an elderly man who suffered a heart attack after he and his wife came across an escaped lion. Derek and Meredith witnessed the same lion while driving to work in the morning. As expected, the lion gave the patient quite a scare, sending him to the emergency room. The man and his wife are an adorable old couple, still in love after years and years of marriage. You can tell that they share a genuine friendship. Teddy and Alex promise to do their best, and reassure the woman that her husband is in good hands. Things get a little dicey during the procedure, but Teddy saves the patient. Their joy is short-lived, because when Teddy goes to tell the man’s wife the good news about a successful surgery, she finds that the woman has expired in the waiting room. This hits home for Teddy, and when she’s alone she says the words that she could not utter in group therapy, “I am a widow.”
Alex has been growing closer and closer to his intern Morgan, especially after taking an active role in the care of her newborn baby. The other docs warned him that Morgan had feelings for him, and now he can see for himself that the line between them is getting blurred. He wants to detach himself from her but can’t find the words to do so. Instead, he abruptly cuts her off, right when she has to make a difficult choice about Tommy’s care. Alex is right to distance himself, but he should still be compassionate about it. In the end, tough love wins out.
Help Domestic Cats
The Loews Royal Pacific, Loews Portofino, and Hard Rock Hotels at Universal Orlando Resorts in Orlando, Florida made the cruel decision to start trapping and removing the cats who’ve called their property home for years.
It gets even worse. Some of these cats are being left unattended inside their traps—for hours—in the 89-degree heat. The cats are hungry, and have not been fed for over a week. Loews has forbidden anyone from feeding them. Employees have even been threatened with losing their jobs if they don’t comply.
These cats’ lives are in danger, and it’s completely preventable. All Loews must do is stop the trapping. So far, they have ignored us. Only a massive public outcry can stop them before more cats are harmed.I need you to stand with Alley Cat Allies right away and demand that Loews stop this inhumane treatment now.
We’ve already seen at least two cats with bloodied noses because they were frantic to get out of their traps. And just last night, we saw a picture of Shadow, a beautiful gray tabby, with a visible gash in her forehead from being left in a trap unattended.
Hotel guests have witnessed this cruelty and complained to staff about the cats’ treatment. Still, Loews continues trapping.
Alley Cat Allies, along with others, has reached out time and time again, offering guidance and assistance in the hopes that Loews would do the right thing. Still, Loews refuses to listen.
We’re doing everything in our power to help these cats—but we need as many people as possible to stand with us right away to stop the cruelty. We need you.
Loews goes to great pains to sell itself as animal-friendly. But these vaccinated, healthy, neutered cats have been denied food for over a week, trapped in terrible conditions, and taken from their family and their home.
We can’t just stand by while these cats suffer. We have to fight for them. Stand with Alley Cat Allies today and help stop the inhumane treatment of these cats today. We will make sure that the petition with your signatures is hand-delivered tomorrow.
