here, kitty kitty on pbs this saturday!

     you may not remember everything that happened back in 2005, but you probably recall the proposal that got the whole state talking - question 62.  it was the proposal to declare feral cats an un-protected specie and therefore shoot-able.  thankfully, it didn't pass.  we like to think that it's failure was in large part due to the success of  local, feral-friendly group, don't shoot the cat, and the efforts of madcat's very own fearless leader, ted.  

after the proposals failure, local filmmaker, andy beversdorf, filmed a documentary, called here, kitty kitty, that examined both sides of the argument and the controversy it caused.  happily, the documentary will be air this saturday night on pbs at 10:00pm, preceded by an interview with the director at 9:3opm.  be sure to tune in and check out ted and a couple of our now-famous west-side kitties as they tackle the issue that only pushed us further into no kill territory.
