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

Good news: My new book, compiled with the help of
many of you, is now on sale at Amazon.com. The title
is "Our Amazing Cats."

I didn't have the link available for you in the
last issue, as it was only released on Thanksgiving,
Nov. 22. Here is the current link:

http://amazon.com/dp/1480292559

If you have not seen it yet, be sure to go get one
(or more) for holiday giving. It's only 7.97 and is a
very entertaining read. You will enjoy reading
stories from your fellow newsletter readers:
Nancy Dutton, A. L. Wilson, Christine Houde, Anna
Balsamo, Cateline Beem, Cheryl Wright, Fritz owens,
and Dena Johannes, with a special contribution from
a well known newspaper columnist in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, Stu Bykofsky.

Blind Cat Sanctuary Offers Cage-Free Oasis

I have a blind cat here in my shelter, and she has
been one of the most delightful cats we have! Being
blind is no reason to put them down. Read this heart-
warming story about a young woman who agrees and has
done something about it:

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

A "camera trap" photo documents the first-known occurrence
of an extremely rare spotted cat in Madidi National Park in
Bolivia.

The Oncilla (Leopardus tigrinus) occurs across the Amazon and
along the tropical Andes. About the size of a house cat, they
are the smallest cat species of South America's lowlands.
Very little is known about their life history.

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

It's going to be a long time rebuilding homes,
streets, infrastructure and jobs, not to mention
lives, after Hurricane Sandy. One way to help, which
is seldom thought of, is caring for the animals that
also have suffered the loss of their homes. If you
know someone, or are someone, in that area, consider
rounding up some foster homes for displaced pets:
