NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
Help needed after Siamese Rescue founder dies,
leaving behind nearly 100 cats and only a handful
A day in the life of an animal control officer:
(Of special note: The ACO in the story is my daughter!)
Be on the lookout for live animal sales on eBay.
The company claims it doesn't happen, because they do
have rules that prevent it. However, while live animals are
no longer found in the auction area, they are still showing
up in the classified ads section. Petitions to eBay are being
ignored, so if you have some other ideas, let me know.
I just put a new feature on my website, at the request
of a visitor from Brazil. She has a very good grasp of
English, but certainly reading a web page in one's own
language is more comfortable and probably easier to
remember. So she requested that I add a translation
service to the page. And I did.
