Cool Cats on Campus

If I ever need something inspirational to look at, I just have to go to Flickr and see what’s in store. And it looks like I’ve been doing lots of that lately. And being that I’m a cat person, I just get really excited when I see one that looks like mine or at least close to mine.

looking at mom…

So here’s where I found these picture of the pretty cats. Andrea from Flickr, is living used to live in Japan and found herself able to help a family of feral cats on campus. These cats are one lucky bunch! Andrea is part of a supporter of Animals Asia. Their mission statement: “Animals Asia Foundation is to improve the lives of all animals in Asia, end cruelty and restore respect for animals Asia-wide.” Great job with everything Andrea!

Andrea was able to trap, neuter, and release them again. There is also a similar program in Palo Alto, California for the Stanford University cats. This is the best way to take care of them. So they get to live in the wild but not end up with too many kitty liters and hungry mouths to feed. So next time you want a new pet, just visit your local shelter. Both dogs and cats will be so happy to be with you.

Hybrid Scooter

I like to think my little German car gets pretty good mileage at 32 hwy and 28 city. But with the price of gas in northern California being at $4.37 it cost me almost $50 to fill up my tank. I remember just years ago I would get a full tank on only $20. Someone out there is getting rich. And I know it’s not the everyday people having to go to work, school, or basically the commoners. My only resolution at this point, besides having to walk, ride a bike, or take public transportation is to go out and get me a scooter! I should have jump on one three years ago, but the thought of getting run over by a giant SUV was a big determent.

Well, here is what I found from my research. This is an older model, 2006 Vespa Hybrid scooter.
