this week has been insane. it started with trapping stray cats (and large insects) in dc and is ending with pretty much the same thing. throw in copious amounts of work in between, and voila! you've got the life bridget speiser (and the other catnipp cogs) in a nutshell. catnipp = cat neighborhood partnership program, and it promotes the (tnr) trap/neuter/return of stray cats living in dc.

stray and feral cats are the product of human neglect and abandonment. there are THOUSANDS of stray cats in washington dc alone. some are feral street cats; others are abandoned pets. here are a few things you can do to lend a hand:

1. educate yourself. bridget, catnipp program director, created this amazing video.

2. volunteer with your local shelter or rescue.

3. foster homeless animals that would otherwise be euthanized.

4. donate. funds are largely lacking in today's economy. the smallest amount can make a HUGE difference. for instance, a one time donation of $45 sterilizes one cat!

5. donate old towels, newspapers, blankets, toys, litter, food, etc. to your local rescue.

5. adopt! animals are seriously the best. once you adopt, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!

for more info, please contact: the washington humane society, catnipp, or homeward trails animals rescue.
