    Please feel free to add what is important to you & worth a view!

    Starting with respect/equal time in the fashion industry:

    Lost Life Aiding Dog in Traffic

    Wow…. someone looses their life trying to help an injured dog, yet those who do harm to animals are free to roam the earth in many cases?? where is the justice I have to ask? ~~D
    It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to ACPB volunteer, Kristine Reiser. Kristine, a devoted animal lover, lost her life while aiding an injured dog on a roadway.

    Animal welfare was a cause that was near and dear to Kristine’s heart. We ask that you join us in honoring her life by paying it forward and helping an animal in need – donating blankets, walking a dog at your local shelter, or opening your home to a foster dog are just some ways that you can help. Please share with our community what you have done to pay it forward in Kristine’s name by commenting below.

    Good to see the fashion industry is looking to make changes. Slowly we are seeing plus size models becoming more common.

    RIP Kristine Reiser.

    That certainly is one purr-oactive kit JK! Now my Meadow kit Nicky once hung up phone when I was talking to a client, fun trying to explain that one, but nothing like Zeke!

    JK, you’re killing me with all these buff guys that you’ve been posting of late LOL. Big floofy Himalayan (I thing or maybe Persian) is cute too and sort of buff as colouring. 😀

    What a beautiful orangie, and what a harsh early life. So sad that he passed, but at least he lived in sanctuary which was the very least that he deserved. All our Meadow furries will surely give this hero kit a warm welcome!

    Mr. Tom Brooklyn was quite a majestic cat – I remember his story. Think I’ll buy a white bulb so he can help light my hometown shelter holiday tree.
    Girl kitties must be falling over him at the Meadow!

    Looks like Montreal’s cat café is getting ever closer to official opening!
    http://www.cafechatlheureux.com/en-ca/our-cafe
    Supposedly if one wants to order noms one has to book a table. KJ might just opt to spend time lying on floor and playing with the kitties instead. Seems different than neat café KM visited in Japan as although they have strict rules regarding washing before entering, seems one can interact with the kitties – yes!

    And here are pics/bios of the first resident kits:

    They have some pretty neat digs! Better not let Dorry see this or he might pack his little suitcase and go!

    Aww, that baby deer is too cute! And that dude is A1 in every animal lover’s book!
    Such a sweet story of Roscoe. If Opie wasn’t so insistent, or if it was a day later, the story would be tragic.
    Thanks for the feel-good news!

    JK wish that all of TDK could come visit when our kit Café opens. Not allowed to use flashes but will take lots ‘o pics w/generally trusty cell phone. If/when staff is distracted might try to sneak Chopin out for Diva Scoot in my generally trusty backpack! They’d make a lovely purr! 😉
    Tks for good news shares – so need them. Love story of kit rescued by (Nama Game) Lia’s awesome goggie!
    And oh deer … the baby deer … the dude … he’s wearing a wedding band, but a grrl can dream! LOL
