Not quite four months ago, Betsy Boyd spent 41 percent of her annual salary on a kidney transplant for her ailing 17-year-old cat, Stanley.As a condition of the $19,000 surgery, she also adopted the kidney donor, a 2-year-old tabby named Jay, bringing the total number of felines in her household to six.

Another condition: Stanley’s owner would be required to adopt the donor cat as well. “Stanley loves me as much as any human being has ever loved me and I love him the same way,” she tells PEOPLE. “I want him around.” Stanley underwent the procedure in November and is now back home in Baltimore, along with Jay, a formerly homeless 2-year-old cat who served as the kidney donor. “Stan is thriving and … [Read more...] about Woman spends $19,000 on kidney transplant for 17-year-old cat, adopts donor feline
Scott Davis, provided by Published 5:28 pm, Saturday, February 10, 2018 Blick Sport/YouTube Sabrina Wanjiku Simader will be the lone Kenyan at the Winter Olympics.

Simader launched a crowdfunding campaign to cover travel, equipment, and training costs and appeared to meet her goal. Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang open on Thursday, Sabrina Wanjiku Simader will be the lone athlete representing Kenya.
