Cats on wheels!

One of our great local shelters here in Boston, Animal Rescue League, has launched a mobile pet adoption van. When I had lunch with two of ARL's guys last week, we talked about this and I asked about screening. After all, for someone to take an animal in while it's still a cute kitten or a puppy only to bring it back a few months later, when it is considered less cute and adoptable, is a crime. But as this article makes clear, the ARL is being pretty good about screening. At any rate, they're trying -- which is why I'm contributing both a set of signed books and the right to name a character to their big October fundraiser "Moonlight Ball", and why we'll be doing a fund-raising event later this year. More details as they come together.

And, yes, this is where we got Musetta. This is what she looked like in those days:

Can anyone contribute books? That's a great cause and that is disgusting that someone would return an animal. Musetta has got to be the most personality-packed cat on the planet, judging by that photo!

Click on the link to the ARL and contact them - the big benefit is Oct. 20, and I bet they'd love more donations to the charity auction.
