After a summer with a lot of rough spots, I was looking forward to a calmer fall. No such luck of course, although the tone of our days has changed a bit. This summer was successful in many respects but we also lost a few good cats along the way. Here's who we lost (this kind of goes on for a while).
Among all the many projects we have going at the moment (including fostering a mom with her litter of kittens), we have a troubling situation afoot. Our long-standing feral Blue has been missing for several days. (more…)

This bill does nothing but help high-kill shelters cover their tracks. It makes them less approachable, less accountable. How is that good government? I know most people don't really care about these animals; after all, if people cared more, how would they allow this to continue? The municipal shelter system works best below public scrutiny so it's up to a dedicated few to try to bring these issues to light. I don't blame you for not being aware of what's really going on here, nor am I confident this letter will change your mind. Everybody knows the city pound doesn't have enough money, so here's a way to ensure a funding source that doesn't rely on tax dollars, what's the harm? The harm is that these actions will mean a return to the dark ages of animal welfare for NY state. Do you really want your name associated with that?
