NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS

Here's a blog showing a group of dedicated cat lovers
and rescuers with some interesting and beautiful cattoos:
Lovely, but I doubt I'll be getting one. How about you?
This video is 35 minutes long, but it's full of some
very interesting information and tips for anyone who
works with cats or volunteers at a shelter.
Even if you don't work with large numbers of cats,
the video is very helpful to understand shelter life,
if you've gotten a cat from one, and to understand
what helps cats adapt to a new home.
For those of you who also have a dog or two, you can
take a peek at my Dog Newsletter here:
Of particular interest might be the article about the use
of dogs by wildlife scientists to track animals, such as
some of the big cats. (Thanks to Judy for sending this in!)
