animals

I got stuck watching Animal Precinct. Too awful, what people do to their animals. It hurts me in the stomach to see them, but it is gratifying to see forces trained to deal with it. I think one of the best hopes is the Animal Planet network. People can grow up seeing animals differently, understanding them better than their parents did. And maybe they will learn more about treating them well and understand the need for protection.

speaking of that

I got my new kitty today. He's six years old, about 15.5 pounds, orange, friendly. I put him in the back bedroom to adjust. With food, water, litter, and his bed. I hope he and Bullet get along and I figure they will, one way or another. But Bullet has not shown up yet this afternoon. That always worries me.
