Dominique has been one of my favorite cats at Good Mews from the time I started volunteering there. She’s a cute, friendly little cancer survivor — she had a tumor removed from the top of her head, and the vet was not sure they could get it all so she has to be carefully monitored …

Rinky was adopted from Good Mews as a kitten. Nine years later, she was returned because Grandma was moving in with the family and Grandma is highly allergic to cats. However, Rinky’s human brother, who had grown up with her, now is a law student in Miami and does not live with the rest of …

The Good Mews Kitty Buddy program is starting up again. That, of course, is the program that is the most fun — you commit to spending 30 minutes a week with your “kitty buddy,” a particular feline friend in need of special attention or human/feline socialization. I signed up for the program and picked out …

What a waste of a week. Sometime Sunday or Monday I came down with the creeping crud, so all I’ve been able to do for three days is crawl out of bed, steam in a hot shower to loosen up all the accumulated snotballs in my sinuses so I could painfully hack them up (yeah, …
