Salvatore Valentino Alvear was a special needs kitty: he had a heart murmur and was hyperthyroid. He was quite the social cat, charming both cat and non-cat people. He was Diana’s best friend, and when he passed over, she wanted to create a legacy in his memory, so she wrote Sal Everybody’s Pal: Sal Finds a Forever Home, a beautifully illustrated childrens’ book.Continue Reading
