Helping Stray Cats, the Humane Way!
I found this article a while back and ran out of room to share it with you then, so here it is now:
Frankly, when it comes to helping cats, this information is never out of date.
Congratulations to my friend in Iowa who took in an abandoned house cat this summer and has found him a wonderful home! Every cat should be so lucky!

Help! Name This Cat!
I need some help again. A new cat was dumped in my yard this week, and I need a name for her. She's very sweet but scared and just wants to cuddle, or, as seen in this photo, yawn. [Tip: Animals that are nervous often yawn a lot. They are not bored, just wary. Probably more common with dogs.]

I found some names at these sites:

Visit my blog, http://loveablecat.blogspot.com, to see the ones I like so far. Also, thanks also to Cheryl and Amy for sending me some ideas.

Drop me an email with your suggestions and I'll let
you know which one she chooses. Yes, I'm going to let
the cat select her name. Have you ever done that?
Let us know how it worked. Write to me at felinehelpline@live.com (yes, you'll have to type that in) or just leave a comment on the blog.
Over 100 Tuxedo Cats Dumped At California Shelter In Boxes, Shelter Overwhelmed

OK, who's dumping cats in California? The humane society in Novato has been flooded with more than 100 cats, dropped off late at night, a few dozen at a time. They appear to be in good shape and are likely the result of a breeding operation or perhaps a hoarding situation. The shelter doesn't have room for them all and is looking for the person(s) responsible so they can get them some help.   http://bit.ly/1pg2Xue
