CAT ADOPTION UPDATE: Lucretia, from Bensonhurst, was fostering Blackie and decided to keep him. His brother Pinky, was adopted by Marina, from Mill Basin. Her father fell in love with him when they came and took him that day.


 CAT FOOD TIP: shared by Zofie Jacobs, from Dyker Heights…for the finicky feline. If you add a little water to canned food, cats ‘drink up’ some extra water.


TURKEY CRUELTY:  OUTRAGED by JOANIE LOCICERO…”Jude, I am so upset by what is happening to turkeys on Staten Island.  There must be a better alternative than to kill God’s helpless creatures, grabbing them by their neck and legs, and tossing them onto a chopping block.

“The Department of Agriculture gathered about 80 of these unsuspecting birds and sent them to be slaughtered, believing that turkey feces are a health threat. But, their droppings are in point of fact a good fertilizer for the environment, stimulating grass growth.

“Jude, couldn’t they just move them to a safe, protected place, to roam and to live out their lives without human interference?  Wouldn’t that be more cost-effective than paying the salaries of all those workers to grab and kill? What message are we sending to our children?  Aren’t we supposed to teach them to love and respect God’s creatures, not to kill?  Thanks for listening.”
