Ralph was having a rough year.
Between covid, a heart procedure, and a lung infection, April Ralph, who goes by Butch, had spent as much time in the hospital as out. And then his beloved support cat, Shaman, died.
“We’re troopers. We keep going,” said Micki, Butch’s sister, who has helped take care of him for years. In addition to his health conditions, Butch has had cognitive issues since experiencing asthma-related oxygen deprivation as a child.
