Thought for the day:

"Beware of people who dislike cats."
-- Irish proverb.


You've probably seen all the recent news articles about
cats causing toxoplasmosis. It's almost as if all the
cat-haters have been working overtime to find more ways
to vilify cats. This only leads to more cat abuse and
death and makes everyone feel justified in doing so.

Before you feel tempted to believe everything you read
about that disease, please read my article on the subject:

Every year, we tell people not to leave their pets
inside a parked car on a warm day. Yet every year,
people still do it. Aren't they listening? Are we
not getting through? What does it take? Apparently,
letting pets (AND CHILDREN) die isn't even enough.

Here are two links you will find interesting. In one,
a veterinarian sits in his car on a warm day for 30
minutes, documenting the temperatures as they rise
to deadly levels.

In the other, a baby dies, and that was just a few days

1. Vet sits in hot car:

2. Baby dies after being left in hot car in Alabama:

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.
