Hi Cat Lover!

Here's what's in this issue:

New cover for my expanded book...
Dr. Jones forced to leave practice...
Cat food news...
Stuff for Cat lovers...
Web sites to explore...
A smile for you... the Lion Whisperer

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

Thanks to everyone who took the survey for the new book
cover. Here are the results (rounded off):

55% liked cover no. 3
14% liked cover no. 2
31% liked cover no. 4
and no one voted for no. 1

A total of 49 people voted.

So, here's what I did. Since the book isn't a complete
rewrite (2 new sections were added, doubling the number
of pages), the book isn't "new," per se, but an update. So I went with
cover no. 3. It's the cover from the 3rd edition, but my friend who
does graphics gave it a nice makeover. So I tried to keep everyone
happy, if that's possible. But the main thing is, there is more in it
about cats and some new photos, too.

The new book is for sale on my web site, but if you already own
a copy, you are eligible for all future updates at no charge. Please
send me an email telling me which version you own and I'll send
you the latest edition either by attachment or by download link.
Just let me know which is most convenient for you.

Here is the web page to buy the book if you don't already have it,
or would like to tell your friends about it:

I'd also like to thank everyone who allowed me to use their
comments as testimonials and stories for the book.

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

I know a number of you have kept up with the holistic veterinarian
in Canada over the years, Dr. Andrew Jones. His information has
been very helpful and he's been honest and sincere with his clients
for the good of everyone's pets.

But he will no longer be able to practice due to some legal issues
over his use of natural care methods and his readiness to discuss
them.

If you can get video on your computer, here is a news story about it:

http://www.theinternetpetvet.com

Here he is on television as a guest, on a show called the Balancing
Act:

http://www.theonlinevet.com/

I just attended his most recent teleseminar on "healing your pet
at home" and I hope you got a chance to listen also. If not, here
is the link to download that program:

http://www.theonlinevet.com/seminar/olvrecdl111510.php

I don't know how long that link will be up, so go get it if you missed
it and would like to listen. It's a large download, however... over 40 MB.
When you go to that page, be sure to also look for the link to download
his free ebook.
