Shine a Light for Barbcat
by Randy Paynter
August 2, 2011 Today’s Shine A Light (where we do a simple act of kindness for an individual) is for a long-time Care2 member and her extraordinary commitment to animals.
You may know her as BarbCat. She has been working to protect animals for most of her life and has been a member of Care2 since 2002. Barb has spent hundreds of hours signing petitions, sharing stories about animals in need, talking with her Care2 friends and working to be a positive influence for good — all done while overcoming a significant disability.
Barb’s commitment to animals has always been a part of her life. Even as a young child, she was devoted to her family’s pets and they were devoted to her. Her family and friends nicknamed her “Snow White” because when they would go outside or spend time at local nature preserves, animals would literally flock to her, climbing on her wheelchair and into her lap when possible. Barb’s love for animals is contagious and spreads to all those she meets. She recently encouraged employees where she lives to sign up to do a charity walk with her to help raise money for local animal issues.
Please take a moment to send some love and good wishes to BarbCat by leaving a comment. We’ll make sure those messages are shared with Barb.

||Never stop believing in you.
|What Gives Me Hope
||God's promise of a brand new day! =)
|If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
||I would make sure everyone had a good job, a place to live, and an animal to love. If my community thought I was good enough to run for President, I'd do it. I believe we need a cabinet of sincere animal lovers who are willing to serve the public on animal welfare. I would make sure that wild animals who were stolen from their families like Tony the Tiger, were sent to a beautiful sanctuary such as The Jacoby Park where tigers, lions, cheetahs, go when they have been abused. I gleaned this information from watching The Wildlife Docs. My very best friend, Alice, contacted them about the possibility of taking Tony. They acknowledged they knew about Tony but there are many steps involved before they can accept him. I'm still working on it...I don't have to be the Mayor to get Tony away from dirty old money grubbing Michael Sandlin!!!!!!!
|What/who changed my life and why
||The person who changed my life is my Mama. She taught me how to laugh at myself, enjoy being in the "now" and believe in my dreams. She also inspired me to write poetry because of the beautiful poetry she wrote.
