NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
Nebraska looking at culling mountain lion populations.
The state legislature is considering a bill to create
a limited hunting license to keep local big cats from
becoming too numerous. There have been recent sightings
here near our place, too.
Thanks to Amy for this story.
Help us name our new cat! We just received a new
rescue and he's gorgeous...almost pure white, with
just a touch of tan on top of his head. He has FIV,
the dreaded Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, so he
won't get to live with the rest of the cats. He's
very affectionate and hates to be alone, so that's
going to be hard. You can see him on my blog, here:
Leave a comment with your suggestion and we'll set
up a ballot so everyone can vote for their favorite
name. The top 3 winners will be featured on the blog.
And this wonderful cat will be wearing the number one name!
CAT FOOD NEWS
Don't let those pet food companies con you into
thinking their products are as pure as they say they
are. Write to your pet food company and ask those
sensitive questions they don't like to answer!
Help Feed Shelter Animals
Don't forget to visit these sites as often as you can and
click on the shelter-feed links. There is no cost to you
to do this, but it can only be done once per day.
http://www.freekibblekat.com/ (Answer a trivia question...
even a wrong answer gives a donation.)
You can sign up for their daily reminders, too, if you need
a little nudge, like I do.
WEB SITES and FUN STUFF
Visit these "cat cafes." What a fun idea!

A SMILE FOR YOU
Comedian Bill Dana said, "I'd been told the training
process with cats was difficult. It's not. Mine had
me trained in two days."
Thanks to Judy, who found this on the FreeKibble site!

TAKE ACTION TO HELP ANIMALS IN NEED
How to help animals:
This is an especially sad story. The photos are
a bit graphic, too, so if you prefer not to look,
I understand. This cat was rescued in Beirut, Lebanon,
and had been tortured by unknown despicable humans,
and left to die. The group is called BETA, or, Beirut
for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They need help
with this cat's medical care, so if you do look, maybe
you could click the Donate button and send even a small
amount. Tell them it's for "Gaia," the name they gave her.
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. Tell the Kardashians to stop selling fur!
4. Support the World Wildlife Fund. They have asked the
U.S. government to make private ownership of tigers
illegal. It's not just for the sake of the tigers, who
are abused and tortured for large amounts of money, but
for public safety, as most people don't know how to
properly care for these big cats, and if they escape an
inadequate enclosure, they could hurt or kill someone.
Wild animals belong in the wild.
