energetic cat he is and deserves to be:

What a sweet and lucky kitty to have such good help after a tragic accident.

Is Kissing Your Pet Okay or Risky?
Always a controversial topic, some say it's fine to kiss and be kissed
by a pet, but others say it's risky, as some diseases do cross over to
humans. What do you do with your cat? Kiss or not kiss?

According to Washington State University veterinarian Raelynn Farnsworth,
 "More pet owners are living with more than one cat;
and more men are cat owners.  It used to be that only
women brought their cats in for examinations. These
days, I see a lot of men as well,” she said. “It’s more OK
than it used to be for men to admit that they’re fans of cats.”

Here is an interesting story about the dogs on the Titanic,
the famous ship that sank in 1912. Be sure to read the last
paragraph of the story to see what happened to the cats!

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED

How to help the animals:

1. The only large organization I ever donate to is:
http://deltarescue.org as they are not caught up in the
politics of rescue. They care only for the animals.

2. Always remember to check with your local shelter
to see what they need. Your donation will go directly
to the animals, in sharp contrast to some of the large
national groups, whose donation income goes toward
large administrative salaries and other expenses, not
necessarily for animals.

3. Buy my books if you haven't yet. Sales are used to
help support all the cats here, and you can enjoy some
heartwarming stories, too! Thank you.
