WEB SITES TO EXPLORE


The most complete information about fleas:

http://felinetreatment.net/2013/09/21/fleas-treatment/got-cat-fleas-feline-fleas-treatment-what-works-what-doesnt-2980/

This is what helped me the most in my own battle with
these little blood-suckers. It's been over two weeks
now without one sighting of a single flea! However, I
know better than to sit back and assume it won't happen
again. I'm keeping this site on my front burner so I can
refer to it as needed. I plan to print much of it also.

The declawing controversy is in the news again.
A veterinarian in Calif. has created a documentary
film on the effects on housecats. She already has
accomplished a ban on the procedure for large cats,
such as tigers and lions, who often suffer unspeakable
pain and disability. Click below to read about her work and
to find out how to view the film, due out the end of
Sept., at these links:

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED

How to help the animals:

1. Free to Good Home? Read this to find out why
you should never do it:

Thanks to Maggie for this link.

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.
