take a look at one or more of them and leave a comment or
two at Amazon. So far, I'm getting good feedback from
people who have purchased and read the books, but it
would be cool to have some of those comments posted at
Amazon to help others make a decision what to buy.

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. Here's what happened:
Outrage Over Feral Kitten Shootings
And here's what we can do:
Remove humane officer that shot kittens in front of children
from his position of authority. Sign petition:
https://www.change.org/petitions/remove-humane-officer-that-shot-kittens-in-front-of-children-from-his-position?share_id=eSoTtWVQLT&

May all who are lost, be found. May all who are ill,
be well. May all in harm's way, be saved. May all
without homes, be loved.
