NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
I just optimized one of my blogs to appear on mobile devices,
like Smart Phones, etc. Take a look if you have a mobile
Even if you don't, I redesigned it a little for regular computer
viewing, too. If this goes well, I will do the rest of my blogs.
Old story, but it comes up every so often. Worth a look!
This article is about the lady with 700 cats! No one can
tell me she does this all alone. But I'm glad there's a place
Now, here's a lady who IS doing it all alone. She's sheltering
120 cats that were displaced by Missouri River flooding. As
you can see by the comments below the story, there are always
a bunch of critics who don't like to hear about people who care
In case you didn't see this last month, have a look:
I just put a new feature on my website, at the request
of a visitor from Brazil. She has a very good grasp of

CAT FOOD NEWS
Healthy Cat Treats (from Dr. Jones)
1/2 cup of dry milk
1/2 cup of wheat germ
1 teaspoon of natural honey
3 ounces of fresh liver (or strained liver baby food)
Optional: mix in some powdered vitamin supplements
(Yours, or get these: http://bit.ly/r3fxds)
Combine the dry milk and wheat germ. Drizzle 1 teaspoon
honey on top. Add jar of strained liver baby food or homemade
blended liver and stir until everything is well mixed. Form
the mixture into balls, place on an oiled cookie sheet and
flatten them with a fork.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake 8 - 10 minutes.
Consistency should be like fudge.
Store in a jar in the fridge, or freeze if keeping more than
a few days.
I haven't tried this yet, so if you do, let us know how your
cat liked it (or not).
