David and I also volunteeer at a no-kill shelter, NEADY
CATS, in Princeton, Mass. We dp whatever needs to be done, from stuffing envelopes and sending out fliers, to doing photographs
for their websites, cleaning cages and socializing unhappy newcomers. Some of the cats there are unadoptable for various
reasons, and so we sponsor one (currently a Felive HIV positive, nearly blind little girl named Helen). Our sponsorship
helps pay for medicines, treats, and general upkeep for this cat which might otherwise be euthanized. To see pictures
of our kitty friends and of the NEADY CATS facility, please click on the link to NEADY CATS.
