RIDICULOUSNESS


Mommy is very upset. We got an email today from our good friends at Zoolatry about this despicable idea being considered in Mommy's home state of New Jersey. The email was originally sent by Jen, Tuck's mom and here it is:

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND THIS EMAIL ON to others on your list who care about our feral cats, their wellbeing and their safety. Thank you.

I was hoping you could help me spread the word about a horrifying story I read in my local paper this morning. New Jersey officials are trying to ban TNR and instead, legalize the hunting of feral cats. I posted a link below to the story. If you could share this news with everyone on your mailing list I would really appreciate it. I'm asking everyone to write a letter or send an email to the NJ Fish & Game Council letting them know that we will not allow this to happen. I included the contact info for the council below.

All us kitties (and our beans) need to voice our outrage at this news. Write, call, email today!

Mommy is very fond of our feral brethren. She has been feeding feral kitties that come into our backyard for over a year. She and our next-door neighbors have saved 3 of 4 feral kittens and placed them into loving forever homes. Here are photos of 2 of the 3 saved kitties getting cleaned up (well, actually it looks more like they are snuggling and snoozing) at the V-E-T before getting to go to their forever home together!

Would you please post a link to the original article describing the NJ proposal to hunt feral cats? I googled for it and couldn't find anything. Just want to read it for myself. Thanks!

I like it very much when I see animals doing that snuggling thing... I just got a new cat which I adopted from the shelter and it is just so cute that she stays in the rabbit hutch piling with my rabbits.
