NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS

Pets left out in the cold will be confiscated by
St. Louis police. This time of year, many thousands
of pets will die, and many already have, from the
severe cold we're having this year. All but 9 U.S. states
have cruelty laws to regulate this problem, but few
do anything anyway. Hooray to St. Louis for doing
the right thing!

Good advice to help your pets get through this terrible
winter we're having here in the U.S.:

http://www.tricities.com/news/local/article_a978eb82-767d-11e3-b84e-0019bb30f31a.html

1. Best: bring them inside.
2. Good: provide a heated place for them if they
cannot come inside.
3. Minimum: Insulate a space for them so they
stay dry and maybe can share body heat with
a companion. Dry blankets and straw can provide
pretty good insulation.

In all situations, be sure they have food and fresh
water. Dehydration is just as difficult when it's cold
as it is in the summer heat.

And, just to be sure no one forgets this: Never ever
use antifreeze to keep water from icing up.

Good advice!

 
Cat Cafes:
 
You may remember about the cat cafes in Japan...
well, now they are becoming an item in Paris, too!

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED

How to help the animals:

1. List of FREE or low cost Spay/Neuter by state -
http://www.animalliberationfront.com/Practical/Pets/FreeNeuterByState.htm

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.

Thought for the day:
"Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody...
that is a much greater hunger, a greater poverty than the person
who has nothing to eat."
