Give shelter pets a chance — a home
Every week I have to wrack my brain to come up with something to write about for this column. Unlike a handful of people in the newsroom, I don’t have kids or Godkids to talk about, but I do have a cat I adopted from JCARL back in January.
I won’t talk about him much here — I’ve done that plenty in the past (by the way, the whole cat-walking thing didn’t turn out too well) — but, due to recent events at the Animal Rescue League of Iowa, I have to take a second to advocate for shelter animals.
When I headed over to JCARL in January to play a little cat roulette (there were literally dozens of felines vying for my attention), one gray, tiger-striped kitten would not shut up not matter how much I held him. I figured I’d feel the worst leaving him, so I filled out a little paperwork, handed over $20 and Oscar was mine.
