Another update on Noah the cat

I saw on Tuesday's ATV Evening News that Noah -- the cat who broke his leg after being thown out of a second-storey window in Halifax -- is doing just fine and is back home. The Atlantic Cat Hospital has raised $4,500 for his care, which is more than needed. The excess will be donated to the Nova Scotia SPCA. His previous owners -- the ones who threw him out of the window -- are denying any wrongdoing. Quelle surprise! The case, however, has been handed over to prosecutors who will be determining whether or not there is enough evidence to lay charges. Let's hope so! Congratulations to everyone who stepped forward to help this little cat -- his new owners, the Atlantic Cat Hospital, the Atlantic Veterinary College, ATV News and everyone who donated through the Maritime Provinces and Canada. The positive power of the media at work!

I watch animal rescue shows on TV and it's always the same old same old with these animal abusers, they always play dumb. Why do they own animals at all if they're not going to take care of them responsibly.

I'm on the board of directors of a local animal shelter and hearing stuff like this just drives me crazy. You'd be surprised at the number of people who consider pets as just a piece of furniture that can be abandoned when they're done with it. So sad. Luckily, the animal lovers and compassionate people in the world far outnumber the "bad" people. :)
