4 cats have been abandoned in the Southfield, Michigan area and Animal Control will not help. They need to be rescued before they freeze/starve. You can read more about it on Cat Chat. Please pass on the information so these cats can be rescued.
Ah, yes, if only every shelter dog and cat could get its Christmas wish for a happy home.

Opy, the Original Gruff Puppy, died today. She was 14 years old. Her family co-founded the DWB (Dogs With Blogs). The DWB was put on hold when Charlie died and they just lost heart for continuing, so things are looking even grimmer for it now. There are so many dogs who started blogging through the inspiration and camaraderie of the DWB, and they are grieving too. We never joined the DWB because it's easier to handle one blog where we're all together than each of us as individuals - even though there are only 3 of us dogs - but many of our friends belong. We hope Opy's family can draw comfort and hope from the many who love them.
We mentioned the other day that Moe ran off to the bridge Sunday but we didn't have a link for him because he didn't have a blog. But his mom will be starting one for his sisters and there is a memorial photo of him on today's CB post.
Remember Wyatt and Storm, the two dogs turned into an Arizona shelter a few months ago that reportedly were in the care of a friend for a deployed soldier? Well, it turned out to be a rumor. The dogs did not belong to a soldier overseas. You can read the story here.
However, according to their Facebook page, the two dogs were adopted into a home together in November. That was the only place we could find an update. The dogs are safe because the misunderstanding brought out the best in a lot of folks who worked separately and together to find the soldier or find them a new home.
Jan has a respiratory something or other and although she feels pretty good for feeling so miserable, she's not accomplishing anything. So we need to go snoopervise and get her cleaning our house. It's a mess! She says it's because we cats have knocked things to the floor and we dogs have dragged our bedding around and spread it so she doesn't even have a walking space, but we all know that's just a human excuse. After all, what would she have to complain about without us?
