Foxy, a mini-Pinscher/Chihuahua mix, was found roaming the streets of Fresno, California and is a real party girl. Fetching is her scene. She nibbles her food daintily as if determined to keep her perfect figure.
And then there's Tux, a black and white tuxedo kitten, the newest member of our clan. One of my mom's caretakers found this kitty crying and shivering in a gutter in Queens during an icy storm. In from the cold, she immediately melted our hearts with her hijinks. But, Foxy –used to being the star- has given Tux a bit of the cold shoulder. It doesn't help that Tux miraculously took to fetching as well. Hence Episode One: Foxy's Jealous. I hope you enjoy it.
As a journalist I feel it's my obligation to speak for voiceless animals and I do every week on my TV show that airs Monday through Friday at 7pm EST on HLN. Sometimes I bring my rescues on the show with me. It takes the edge off the horror I feel the obligation to discuss. 9 billion farm animals – cows, pigs, chickens, lambs, ducks, turkeys -- raised in factory farm conditions whose cruelties have been revealed in numerous undercover operations by organizations like the Humane Society of the United States, Mercy for Animals and PETA. Many of these sentient beings will only glimpse the sky on the packed ride to slaughter.
