76-year-old man has been feeding stray cats for the last 22 years

Willie Ortiz is a 76-year-old scrap metal collector from Hartford, Connecticut. For the last 22 years, he’s fed the stray cats in his area every single day. He hasn’t skipped a feeding in the last 22 years, and cares for nearly 70 cats in total, feeding them each night as well as spaying and neutering them so the stray population doesn’t grow out of control.

Each morning he leaves his home at 6am with tins of sardines and cat food, feeds the cats, and checks on their health. Willie does this alongside his job, which requires him to collect and sell scrap metal whatever the weather, no matter how tired he is, regardless of how difficult it becomes.

Willie started caring for the cats after he saw people ignoring a hungry kitten begging for food and he plans to continue feeding the cats for as long as he can.
