new happy cat - snuggledorf!

yes, snuggledorf, snuggler of dorfs and all things magical. (but you could just call him "george.")

this happy cat was admitted to dchs as a stray, is neutered, and is somewhere around five years old.

he's a handsome guy with big, gold eyes and a fancy-pants tuxedo.  this guy is always ready for a night at the opera or a romantic evening at home.

want to meet him?  come to the west side store on mineral point road or contact the good people of happy cat for more info.

we got balls

catnip soaked glitter balls, that is. made in canada and a size smaller than our usual sparkle balls, these balls are sure to please. nikki madcat is already a big fan:

might want to rethink the placement on those balls there.

rescue underway in joplin

the tornado wiped out most of the city but it didn't take their resourcefulness.

as rescue workers search through rubble to find missing persons another rescue effort is on to reunite lost pets with their families.  a facebook page is now the quickest way to get a picture of your pet in front of 10,000 sets of eyes and the folks at the city's make-shift shelter facility.  meanwhile, shelter rescuers are updating constantly with pictures of new intakes and requests for donations, like blankets and towels. 

it's an amazing testament to the power of social media, and the people behind it. 

here's hoping this site, and the many others to follow, will give some joplin residents a happy ending...and a new beginning.

no, not raptor. rapture!

well, it looks like we're still as usual.

but, if anyone was called up by the great ceiling cat in the sky they can relax thanks to "after the rapture pet care."  that's, right.  book your very own blasphemer in advance and it's smooth sailing all the way to the pearly gates.

but in all honesty, it's nice to be around for awhile longer.  we've got kittehs to help.

happy cat Fe-Fe

it's fuzzy-wuzzy time!

our newest happy cat adoptee is a seven-year old female named fe-fe.  she's just a little thing (don't be fooled by the ewok coat, it's all fluff) who loves nothing more than to lay on laps and play with string.

but don't let that fool you, fe-fe likes to be the queen of her domain and would do best as an only-cat.

stop by madcat on monroe street to meet her.  you never know, she may be the one.

for more info, contact the good people of happy cat.

stop by and check em out!

dead goose walking

last night the board of park commissioners voted to recommend to the madison common council to "use any measures to control the goose population-including killing," despite widespread public outcry.

shame on them. if we start to endorse the killing of species that annoy us, what next?

but there's still hope.  contact the mayor and your alders and let them know that this is not "forward" thinking and this is not how madison solves its problems.

thank you to all who came out in support.  the geese heard you.

the lyre bird - wasn't he in police academy

this bird mimics the sounds of all the other birds he hears in the forest. but apparently he's been watching some star wars because those "boops" and "whistles" sound exactly like R2D2. skip to 2:10 for the car alarm and chainsaw action.

another spring, another goose fight

the parks commission is meeting once again on wednesday night to go over hefty's report on the the city's goose "problem."  along with management techniques like hazing and egg oiling, a humane harvest (nice word-choice)  is also being proposed. 

this is a listening session meeting so please come and speak on behalf of the geese.  if you're shy, that's okay.  your attendance alone will help the commission to understand that killing is not how madison solves its problems. 

where:  warner park community center (same as last year's big one)
when:  wednesday at 6:30
more info:  no madison goose kill

let's hope there's no fruits and nuts this year....

may the 4th be with you

get it?  may the 4th?  it's star wars day!

grab your T-16 and bullseye a couple of womp rats or make the kessel run in less than twelve parsecs or just spend an hour looking at animals with lightsabers.  any way you go, you're doing it right.

just don't respond with "i know" the next time someone says "i love you."  only han can do that.
