From Animal Cruelty to Creature Comforts
Today Deborah invites to the party, cat expert and animal rescuer, Marci Kladnik from Catalyst for Cats. Marci does feral cat colony management and rescue work in California which has brought her hands-on knowledge of pets who have gone from terrible circumstances to happy homes after animal cruelty and violence sometimes committed by kids. Together host, Deborah Wolfe and Marci discuss the issue of animal cruelty with the emphasis on what you can do to make things better. Stats available through the ASPCA website and other sources show that there is a huge link between family violence and animal abuse.Deborah shares the stats and Marci tells the stories like one kitten that survived having his eye shot out by children at 15 oz when he was so tiny and ended up with two families vying for him. This is an uplifting important show.
