Shedding The Holiday Pounds
Sometimes our holiday generosity gets us into a little trouble. The spirit of the season tends to be all about sharing. Nestled in our time tested traditions are our habits and who doesn’t want to make an exception to the rules in the spirit of the ‘giving season’? We often indulge this time of year (possibly a little more than we should) in those guilty edible pleasures. Those tasty treats of the rich and flavorful seasonal foods, it’s our nature......

Feral cats, also known as “street cats” or “alley cats” are a commonality in not just our community, but in communities all over the world.
