Pablo: A friend to the needy

Just a quick community service announcement to let those of you living in the Hobart area know that the Hobart Cat Centre is currently staging its annual cat food/fundraising drive at local Woolworths supermarkets. You'll see the donation bins near the supermarket entrance (having never been to Woolworths, or any supermarket for that matter, I'm relying on Kate's memory and spatial skills for the accuracy of this information. Apologies if she's got it wrong. She does make mistakes, conrtary to her self-appraisal). The Cat Centre are after donations of tinned cat food and/or cash. **Please note, kittens at the Centre prefer to eat food that does not contain fish, because fish upsets their tummies**

I urge all supermarket-going people to seriously consider making a donation of some kind to the Cat Centre, which does a lot of great work rescuing, caring for and re-housing the stray cats and kittens of Hobart. I'm not asking you to permanently divert your giving to human causes to cat causes (although I'd like to), I'm just asking you to remember the stray cats of Hobart this Christmas. You know why? BECAUSE IT'S HUMANS' FAULT THAT THERE ARE SO MANY STRAY CATS IN THE FIRST PLACE. People don't get their cats neutered. People take on a cat without properly considering whether they can adequately care for it for the duration of its life. PEOPLE DUMP UNWANTED CATS AS IF THEY ARE RUBBISH. You want evidence that cats are affected by The Fall? (apart from death and sickness, thanks humans!) There it is. Stray cats give Cats in General a really bad name due to the damage they do to wildlife, but it's not their fault! A cat's gotta live, any way it can. Who dumped them? Who stopped looking after them?

Become part of the solution. Step up to your God-given responsibilities as stewards of God's creation! Help stray cats in your area!

I've now got a link to the Hobart Cat Centre in the 'links' section of this blog. Check it out to find out more info on how you can help our local strays. If you're not in Hobart, please consider giving to a cats' home in your local area.

Thanks for your time,

There's not many stray dogs. They must like us more.

I think that stray dogs just don't survive as well in the wild.
