NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
===================================

We hear, see and read a lot of news stories about
soldiers coming home with a dog they rescued while
deployed. But how many soldiers bring home a cat?

I love this story. And you will too:

So far, everything is still on track to get the new
book out according to schedule. We have quite a few
really nice cat stories for Our Amazing Cats, Part 2
now. Last chance to get a quick story sent in if you
still would like to do that. But the deadline is April 14,
or we won't make the publishing deadline of May 15 if we
wait past that.

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED
===================================

How to help the animals:

1. http://www.hipaws.com/help.html
Help feed the ones that never got adopted.

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 book if you haven't yet. Sales are used to
help support all the cats here. Thank you.

4. IFAW just received a desperate plea - Please help
us feed the starving animals of Cyprus.
