and Keep them Out of Shelters!
Do you belong to a club, group or association and want to help keep kitties out of the shelters? If so, encourage your group to hold a cat food drive to benefit the Cat Lovers Club Food Bank. Cat Lovers Club members distribute these donations to families / caregivers who need food for their pet cats / free- roaming/community cat caretakers. We accept both wet and dry cat food (any brand).
Please contact Rita at
info@CatLoversClub.org for more details.
Don't leave your cat's fate to chance. Plan for those you love by signing up for the

Turkey Pumpkin Jerky (Kitty Cuisine)
1/2 pound ground Turkey
1/4 cup 100% Pumpkin puree (not for pies)
1/2 tablespoon Catnip
In a large bowl mix all ingredients, using your hands is probably the most effective way to make sure the ingredients are completely mixed.
Flatten the meat about 1/8-1/4” thick on a cookie sheet 1/2 inches apart. Use your hands or a rolling pin to flatten the meat into strips or whatever shape you desire.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, or the lowest setting.
Dry in an oven, with the door slightly open to let out moisture, for about 3 to 4 hours, until meat is dry appearance and texture.
Cut into kitty sized pieces and store in an air tight container for about 1 week.
As Dark As My Fur
by Clea Simon:
Three figures, shadowy against the light. That’s all I remember from my past life, as I am dragged, dripping and half-drowned, from the flood. My saviour, a strange, pink-haired girl, is little help. She can barely care for herself, let alone the boy she loves. And although she has sworn to avenge the murder of her mentor, she must first escape the clutches of drug dealers, murderers and thieves. I would repay her kindness if I could. But we are alone in this blighted city – and I am a cat.
The past is an enigma to Blackie, the voice of Clea Simon’s dark new mystery. Combining elements of feline fantasy and classic whodunit, The Ninth Life introduces this unusual hero and his companion, Care: two small creatures in a nightmarish urban landscape, fighting for their lives, and for the lives and memories of those they love.

- Dear Teddy: How do you handle fleas?
- Answer Carefully! Since fleas can jump through screens, my Mom gives me a flea treatment recommended by my Veterinarian. The treatment takes seconds, doesn’t hurt and meets my needs.
