In memory of James R. Richards, DVM

I felt very sad after reading this on Wildrun's blog. At the same time, I felt extremely touched by Dr. Richards' act of kindness.

Dr. James Richards, a renowned cat veterinarian and beloved Cornell University Professor died from injuries suffered in a motorcycle accident while trying to avoid a cat on the road. For someone who loves all living animals, the reflex was, I believe natural and without second thoughts.

I think I would have done the same.

Rest in peace Dr. Richards.

Thanks for bringing love and kindness to this world and showing us what compassion is.
