You're my Hero musing:
This week Tuffy the Queensland kitten was rescued from the fatal clutches of a large python by her human, Ruth Butterworth, who was bitten twice and had her arm broken during the rescue. Ruth was a real hero and Tuffy is one lucky cat in March 2008.
An adoption musing:
Every week on the NSW North Coast a number of cats and dogs find themselves without a home.
