    Howard Stern, Wife Beth Own 6 Cats: Inside their Animal Haven
    from article:
    While fans of the Sirius shock jock Stern, 60, may be familiar with he and his wife’s late English bulldog Bianca, they might not realize the menagerie of other animals the Sterns keep at their New York City home. “We fostered an English bulldog last year, and we’ve been fostering cats,” Beth told Us. “We’re up to 75 kittens since last June. We find them all loving homes.”

    Howard and Beth rock! I’ve read about their efforts previously and this is great. Canada’s very own Prime Minister as Stephen Harper and his wife Laureen also foster kitties and get some terrific PR and photo opps for these efforts.*I’d like to live in PM’s posh residence, hmmm*

    Hmmm … sounds like a plan JK. Purrhaps a detailed letter to my Member of Parliament would not come amiss. Hopefully purry nanny job would come with clothing allowance LOL.

    Hope so too JK! This article is heartbreaking and I assume company has been contacted. Won’t bring the furries back, but hope that some peeps decide to instigate class-action lawsuit.

    Only posting because it appears that recently murdered (beheaded) aid worker was also a kit lover/rescuer – this takes a piece out of me. RIP.

    Guess who’s coming to town?

    http://www.mylifetime.com/movies/grumpy-cats-worst-christmas-ever/about

    “In “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever,” Grumpy Cat is a lonely cat living in a mall pet shop. Because she always gets passed over and never gets chosen by customers, this kitty develops a sour outlook on life until…one day during the holidays, a very special 12-year-old girl named Chyrstal enters the pet store and falls in love with Grumpy Cat. A unique friendship is formed between the two when Chyrstal finds she is the only person who can hear this unique feline talk. In the middle of the holiday rush, Grumpy reluctantly thwarts the kidnapping of an expensive exotic dog she can’t stand and rescues Chyrstal after the mall closes on Christmas Eve. Will Grumpy Cat learn the true meaning of Christmas, or will it be in Grumpy’s words, “Worst. Christmas. Ever?””
    I don’t get the channel, but could probably catch on I’Net.
    With all the products and now a movie, Grumpy Cat’s owners are probably making mega bucks. Now why didn’t I think up a plan to make Dorry famous? LOL
    I’m wanting a film about Basement Cat. 😉

    Quattro

    Justice served for Quattro:

    Hello Quattro’s Friends and Supporters,

    Today is the day you have been waiting for since May 7, 2014.

    Renee called for an update today and first spoke to Passaic County Prosecutor Donna Gade who told Renee that the court date was a couple of weeks ago and it went as we wanted. Our voices were heard and Quattro was not ignored or forgotten. Then minutes later Passaic County Prosecutor Jennifer Bedrin personally called Renee to thank her for all her dedication and she was glad to take the time to tell Renee what happened in the court room that day.

    Because of their age, the public was not informed of their court appearance, which happened recently. However, your emails and letters where ever-present in their minds on this day!

    We were told that they took this case very seriously from day 1. To them, Quattro was not “just a cat” but the victim of a heinous and unspeakable beating, that we all know ultimately led to his death.

    They told Renee they received OVER 1,000 LETTERS AND EMAILS from Quattro’s supporters. They were so taken by your outpouring of support and determination to get justice that they told Renee it fueled them more to get Quattro the justice he deserved. They assured Renee that the charges were never going to be dropped or lessened and they were going to make sure of that!

    Here’s what happened: All three boys pleaded guilty to animal cruelty, which is a felony. They admitted to torturing Quattro so badly that it lead to his death.

    They have all received 2 years of extensive psychiatric and psychological therapy. Some of the treatments they will be receiving are anger and impulse awareness, animal sensitivity and victim awareness. The felony charge will be on their records.

    The boys will be on probation for 2 years and they are watching the boys closely and if they don’t comply to the orders from the judge at anytime they will be brought back in.

    Also the prosecutors of Passaic are working on a program for juveniles to do their community service through a program that will be dedicated to educate these children how to treat animals. They hope to have it up and running soon.

    Renee called me crying over this verdict. She was so touched that the prosecutors listened to us. She was overwhelmed at how much you all did to help make this happen. She is also so grateful and thankful for the prosecutors Donna and Jennifer for not allowing Quattro to be forgotten.

    From the bottom of our hearts, once again, we say thank you! If you see abuse, report it. If you see abuse, stop it! We are here to help one another and we are here to be the voice of those that have no voice!

    In memory and tears we at Justice for Quattro are thankful for the good people in this world and we will hug those we love a bit tighter tonight for Quattro.

    Tks for update on Quattro JK – I’m crying too! This world needs more peeps like everyone who stood up to get justice for this poor kitty, who is now healthy and whole and giving his paws up from the Meadow with a chorus of purrs from his furry companions. Listen, you can hear it!
