Dean Koontz, a prolific writer whose books are typically read by adults, collaborated with Trixie Koontz (Dean's faithful companion also identified as a Golden Retriever) and illustrator Janet Cleland, to pen I,Trixie Who is Dog. The opening of the tale, written in verse, is a perfect reminder that APRIL is still National Poetry Month.
Dog is the best of the best things to be.
Sorry you are not dog.
Not everyone can be.
I decided to use Dean and Trixie's style to craft a cat's retort
Cat is the perfect creature - true
Want to see a flawless feline?
Look at me, not you!

A crafty family left a gift for the shelter cats. Eggs. Or Bunnies. Or Egg-bunnies, Bunny-eggs. They wobble, make a sound (filled with beans or cat crunchies) and tickle your nose. Now, officially cat-tested at WARL. Thank you holiday elves.

The local 4-H group stopped by on Sunday armed with a variety of donations -- food, treats, toys and cat litter, plus a money jar filled with cash The Takoma Park group's annual spring drive for WARL started out as a chapter effort in 2012 and has blossomed into full-blown community event. The members are getting older and taller and their collections are getting, bigger too! Thanks 4-H friends!
