If you have ever gone to your pantry or cupboard looking for something and been disappointed to find that you’ve run out, you will understand what it feels like for The Cat House on the Kings (CHOTK) staff to see our supply of kitten kibble, kitten canned food, cat supplements and other cat supplies dwindling. Bare spots on our storage shelves make us anxious, and we sometimes worry about not having sufficient supplies on hand to use for the hundreds of cats and kittens in our care. CHOTK has an Amazon Wishlist, and we keep it updated with the food and supplies that our staff needs to care for the cats and kittens in our care.

Passing boaters thought the Doral’s owners were below decks. It was only when they were close enough to see a man sprawled on the deck, they thought it was odd. Before they got near, the Doral exploded. Without bodies, it’s assumed three men, pharmaceutical executives, who were seen on the yacht were dead. The Jersey State Police declared the incident a triple homicide based on signs of a bomb found in the debris and wreckage.

I have a one-eyed pug pup asleep on my lap. She’s a breeder surrender, and she squeezes between me and the keyboard. I manage to write like this.

Dottie, a little Westie about seven years old, was picked up by a city shelter when she was found wandering alone on the streets. She had numerous health problems, so the shelter called Lone Star Westie Rescue (LSWR).

Some of you (hopefully) noticed I did not have a column last month. Unfortunately, my son, who was 28, passed away after a long illness. Frankie had a degenerative brain disease that progressed very slowly, finally ending my sweet boy’s life on what was possibly the worst day of my life. But for at least three people, the worst day of my life was the best day of their life because we decided to donate Frankie’s organs.

As far as dog shows go, Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Madison Square Garden is top in the country, the oldest, and most prestigious. Dog handlers and owners vie for the chance to show and perhaps win or place.

Kelly got Remington (Remy, a black Berkshire boy) and Ralph (a variegated gray boy) on her birthday weekend this January.
“They were a gift to myself after losing my two boys in the fall of 2019, one being my heart rat. I was very excited to get babies again, and boys are my absolute favorite!”

Finnegan, a five-year-old Scottie, was living in an unstable home, which was not safe for this sweet Scottie. He spent time in a kennel with his housemate, a Cocker Spaniel, that was pulled from the kennel by Cocker Spaniel Rescue. Finnegan was then placed with a friend of the owner. The placement didn’t work out, so Finnegan went to Scottish Terrier Rescue of New York/New Jersey.

As temperatures increase in the summer, so does the rescue pace at The Cat House on the Kings. The Cat House has two fundraisers that have just started, and we can really, really use your help. First, we have our “Every Kitten Counts” fundraiser that runs now through the first week of July. We’ve rescued about 800 kittens so far this year, and our goal is to raise the equivalent of $35 per kitten to help us offset the incredible costs of providing vaccinations, flea and deworming medication, spaying/neutering, and other vet care, as well as food and litter costs for 800 kittens!

Having a pet is a commitment, not something for which you beg your parents and then, two weeks later, are forced to care for. Parents should always remember that they will ultimately be caring for the animal! A decision to have a pet, therefore, needs to be a parental decision.

When people think to adopt from a rescue, what some may not realize is that for every animal adopted, there are many more still in foster care and some of these animals may never leave the rescue. Groups such as Rattie Ratz, a non-profit dedicated to rescuing and rehoming domestic pet rats in the San Francisco Bay Area, developed a sanctuary program so that these animals will always be safe and taken care of, even if they can’t find a home outside the rescue.

Duncan, a Scottie/Airedale mix, came into NY/NJ Scottie Rescue a very frightened little boy. Judged to be about a year old, he was very young acting, probably because he was not socialized. He had spent most of his short life in a crate or chained outside. He was terrified of other dogs and people and had no experience as a beloved pet.
