And now for some cat news:
-----------------------------------

Are Annual Pet Exams Really Necessary?
http://shine.yahoo.com/pets/annual-pet-exams-really-necessary-234600564.html

-----------------------------------

Not a win just yet: Tony the Tiger is still stuck in a
cage at the truck stop on Interstate 10 in Lousisiana.

With all the legal wheeling and dealing (appeals), it will
take more time to actually get him out of there.
He's already been in that cage for 12 years.
(What is the lifespan of a tiger?)

A SMILE FOR YOU
===================================

Cats in a box - this has to be some kind of
a record! Anyone remember telephone booth stuffing?
Or, how many people can squeeze into a Volkswagen?

A great slide show of some cats we've seen before,
some we haven't, many amusing, some disturbing, but
all beautiful in their own feline uniqueness.

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