NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS
When 6 puppies lost their mother, a Siamese cat
named Amanda nursed and cared for them. Amazing!

In a humanitarian partnership, the United States Postal Service,
along with Ellen DeGeneres, as a representative of HaloPetfood Co.,
will provide 1 million meals to pets in shelters all over the U.S.
Sales of stamps will help pay for the food.
CAT FOOD NEWS
Pets are dying from junk food just like we are.
A study in Britain showed that cats are living much shorter
lives because of the poor quality of commercial pet food.
The researchers said the "good old days" of table scraps
should not be dismissed. It was healthier.
However, that said, we still must consider the fact that
today's table scraps consist of the junk food people are eating!
Best bet now is to provide best quality foods, either from any
of the new companies manufacturing it, or by consciously
obtaining and preparing the right kinds of food ourselves.
