    ... Valerie Sicignano, an animal welfare veteran and co-founder of the New York City Feral Cat Initiative of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, with illustrations by award winning graphic designer Jayne Sayre Denny.

    http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/11/01/new-childrens-book-helps-big-apple-street-cats/

    ‘The Cats On My Block‘ is published by The Humane Society of New York (HSNY), and all proceeds from the sale of the book will fund HSNY’s Feral Cat Spay/Neuter Program.

    The book tells the story of some kids who meet community cat caretaker Keith, who explains how he feeds and provides shelter to the cats. He also explains “Trap-Neuter-Return” (TNR), a process by which the cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and left-eartipped to identify them as having been “fixed”, and then returned them to their outdoor home. A glossary of feral “catology” offers readers a vocabulary that broads their understanding of the cats.

    What a bunch of bullshit. Despite his weak heart, Yoda gets more stuff done by 9am than caretaker Keith does in a whole day.


    Just ask Beth

    Yeah. But is she building a $7,000,000 cat palace? I rest my case.

    Regardless of the mainstream rightness or wrongness, pragmatically speaking a competing children's book containing substance, promoted by a major network and the NY division of one of the 2 most respected animal aid organizations couldn't have been published at a better time to compete with this clusterfuck of a farce. So this is a great thing!

    Queue Howard starting to bash CBS and the Humane Society (which actually goes into kill shelters and makes the hard decisions on which animals to rescue). I'm sure Howard will find a spin that feeding feral cats is a bad thing rather than having them die out.

    "Robin, I don't know...let's just say that maybe this Humane Society shouldn't be left alone with feral cats. Robin? Are you there, Robin?"

    She was asked about the cat palace and her response was "dodaly dawsome". She also said her next book will be "crackhead beef and her wine soaked selfies".

    BIG difference between this and Beth's vanity project, it will actually do something to solve the problem of too many unwanted kittens being born. According to dimwitted Beth, Bianca's Furry Friends will include a special facility for pregnant cats. WTF? That will only make the problem WORSE! Apparently Beth wants to ensure she has an unlimited supply of kittens since posing with them is the only way she can get attention.

    Nope. Obviously the author of this book must be hideous and repulsive to children.

    Valerie and mr Sicignano must be limiting themselves to signing copies of the book then. imagine ordering this book and getting a signed copy? it would be like getting a "golden ticket"!

    Love! Valerie

    Now I know which book I will be buying to support a true cause (and not a bored rich wife who has nothing to do and has #nopurpose).
