Formerly Feral Friday: a Very Nice Bean

You guys all had some very good plans for the nasty Bean who threatened his momma and her kitty! I hope they're building that prison-cell sized litter box right now...

On a nicer note, today I thought I'd share with you a very nice Bean who helps kitties (and woofies) who don't have forever homes and are feral or in shelters. His name is Nathan Winograd, and he used to run the SPCA here in Ithaca, NY. Now, I was never in the Tompkins County SPCA, because the Kitty Fairy dropped me off in a tree in Michigan, next to my Auntie Jane's house (she's the one who calls me Jimmy the Hut, by the way). But my momma takes stuff to the Tompkins County SPCA a lot, and she says that they are real nice there. And that's where my old buddy Peach came from!

Mr. Winograd wrote a whole book about how all shelters can become No-Kill shelters, and he runs a whole organization now to help shelters to stop killin' good kitties and woofies who are just down on their luck. You can read about this great project at this web-site, and Mr. Winograd has a blog, too.

It's great to know that there are good Beans in the world, too! Happy Friday to all of my Formerly Feral Friends out there who finally found their Forever Homes!

oh how lovely. See, some humans are great. not many, mind you, but a few are like diamonds in the rough.

Mine are just useless.

It is nice to read about some good beans, too. The shelter my Mommie helps at is for cats only, and it is a no-kill shelter.

Mr. Winograd is a wonderful person! It is great that he is helping shelters become no-kill. It is sad that there are so many animals without Forever Homes.
