Kitty Cat Rescue – Why Beth and Howard Stern and Other Celebrities Do It and You Can Too!

  Rescue a Pet and Save a Life! You don’t have to think far outside the litter box to know that animal welfare is good for your soul and for the pet population, but have you considered various ways you can help?  Cats make purrfect companions but sadly they end up in animal shelters when people don’t do their research, OR buy them as gifts, a big NO-NO according to animal advocats and celebrities like Beth Stern.  Rescuing from shelters is a grrrrreat thing, but pet gift-giving, not always. So why is this such a purrroblem?   Well for one, as cute and cuddly as they are, many people are ill-prepared to take on a new family member.  And that is exactly what they are, part of the family.  Pets require additional expenses, not too mention daily care; including feedings, love and playtime.  Neglect them like you would a child and you guessed it…all hell breaks loose.  In addition, kitten and puppy companions are a handful and can be exposed to dangerous wires, electronics, and more, not too mention get their purrrecious paws caught in doors, drawers and even have their tails injured if not careful.   They are not toys for small children and should be supervised initially.  We are not saying if you are an experienced pet owner that these things are always problematic, but in many cases, gifted pets end up in rescues because they were more then the recipient bargained for.  So please consider their little lives as fragile as that of a babies. What are some ways you can learn to care for current or future pets?...
