A Resolution for Cat People

I would like to propose a simple resolution that requires almost no effort and will prevent countless animals from suffering: Keep your cats indoors . Allowing cats to roam outside unsupervised puts both them and other animals in peril.

Case in point: In 2011 a cat miraculously survived a terrifying four-hour, 200-mile trek under the hood of a car in Ohio . The cat was discovered when the car’s driver stopped …

In a recent appeal to hunters to support gun control in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, NPR sports commentator Frank DeFord called hunting “a perfectly reasonable sports hobby.” But not one of those placating words describes hunting accurately. A “perfectly reasonable sports hobby” is flag football or even ping pong — not a pastime …
