    Thanks JK and PG for your responses. It’s good to see that there are caring people in the world. Of course with TDKers it’s a natural trait!

    Crissy had a degree in social work and worked in a homeless shelter among the toughest clientele – a shelter that accepted people who were intoxicated with alcohol, drugs or both (I have a friend who works in a homeless shelter and you have to be tough as well as caring for such a job). Alas she was not the only victim who worked in a caring profession. Australian nurse Kirsty Boden, working in London, actually ran towards the attack to help victims and was killed herself. I believe that some of the paramedics were also injured, as was a man with training in martial arts who tried to overcome the terrorists.

    Funny, Crissy and Kirsty are very similar names, and they were about the same age.

    “She’s not just an ordinary cat, she’s a member of our family,” one of her owners, Brigitte Olavarria, told HuffPost. “She has a big personality and it doesn’t go unnoticed”.

    I loved that and sent it to friends. She put up with that indignity with great … dignity, since a 15-year-old cat is far from adolescence. They enjoyed the fluffy story after such horrible news everywhere.

    …Bro added, “I’m also extremely sorry that he chose to kill my child and to injure a bunch of other people. He didn’t have the right to do that … This wasn’t a video game, buddy. This was real people. There are real consequences to what you did, and I’m sorry you chose to do that. You have ruined your life. You’ve disturbed mine. You took my child from me, and I’m going to be the voice she can no longer be.”

    “I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion,” she said.

    Heather Heyer Matters
    “They tried to kill my child to shut her up. Well, guess what? You just magnified her,” Heather Heyer’s mother, Susan Bro, says at her memorial service.

    Rally Cat

    http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/it-s-official-animal-group-says-cardinals-won-t-be/article_b006b5a4-a8fe-5a80-9847-b152728f6b1a.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&utm_campaign=user-share

    It’s official: Cardinals won’t be getting Rally Cat

    St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach is still looking for someone to adopt the cat, Watkins said.

    Watkins said the group has not yet decided how to pick which family will get the little kitten.

    “We are looking for a serendipitous match,” Watkins said.

    For now, Rally Cat is being housed with a volunteer and needs to gain more weight before it can be adopted.

    People interested in adopting Rally Cat can email the organization at 314-669-5228 or email at stlouisferalcatoutreach@gmail.com.

    Saw an awesome movie – documentary yesterday – Seed: The Untold Story!
    https://www.seedthemovie.com/
    Seed

    Very Eye-opening!

    Taken from FB post:
    Few things on Earth are as miraculous and vital as seeds — worshipped and treasured since the dawn of humankind. This documentary follows passionate seed keepers who are protecting a 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94 seed varieties have disappeared. A cadre of 10 agrichemical companies, including Syngenta, Bayer, and Monsanto, controls over two-thirds of the global seed market, reaping unprecedented profits. Farmers and others battle to defend the future of our food.

    That looks very interesting; don’t know if there will be any screenings here. Thanks!

    There are a couple of “end of world” movies where they store seeds. The seeds are from all things so when Earth has healed herself from human annihilation.

    What we don’t see is Agri-business who are behind it.

    Deadliest Mass Shooting In Canadian History Remembered

    “Today, Canada remembers 14 students from Montreal, all female, who lost their lives after a gender-based shooting in 1989.

    Today is National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

    December 6th marks the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history, where 14 women were killed in 1989 at L’École Polytechnique de Montreal because they were “feminists”.”

    What an uplifting quote PG!

    I recall exactly where I was when this tragedy happened. Waiting for a dance class at the “Y des Femmes”/Women’s Y.

    Woo – hoo…finally a Cat Café will be opening this Spring in Brewtown/Milwaukee – WI near my n’hood!
    https://onmilwaukee.com/dining/articles/sip-and-purr-cafe-east-side.html
    Sip & Purr Cat Cafe has found a home:
    “The East Side is really an ideal spot,” notes McHugh. “There are no neighborhood cat adoption centers in the area. So, we’ll really be providing a service to people in the area. I think it’s also an advantage to be in proximity to UW-Milwaukee; they’ve proven that spending time with cats reduces stress, so this could be a haven for students who are working on papers or studying for exams.”
    (approx 1mile from my home) 🙂
    The new cafe will feature two separate rooms – a cat-free cafe and an interactive cat lounge where folks can enjoy time with a group of 8-12 felines from the Lakeland Animal Shelter in Delavan.

    Same rule in our 2 kit cafés I believe, JK.

    Although when I visited our café I did wonder if I’d have to effect a wardrobe change before entering my place in the event that Dorry would sniff out the café kits and think that I’d been cheatin’. 😉

    Anyway there are enough kits there to love! Don’t think doggies are allowed either (although our city does have a doggie café, that’s vegetarian/vegan). Kids under a certain age are not allowed in kit cafés either.
