This is an article from the local news. Last June the old people living in this Center, suffering not only the bad the management of local politicains, saw how the cats nearby were taken away.

I like to help out whenever I see a petition that needs signatures. BTW the way C2 has this ''new system'' up for signing petitions, we can't go back to check and see if our name's on it like we used to. If you do, you lose butterflies. In fact, after leaving the petition you just signed, you lose the 50 butterflies you just earned. At least that's been my expirence! *soapbox* But in the long run, it's not the butterflies that count, it's the help we give by signing petitions. God Bless!

You're right, of course, BarbCat - It's the cause that counts. I'll miss my flutterbyes, but I'll sign anyway. Here's hoping they repair the system!

Noted the Story & Signed the Petition with a letter. Sent the Story to Note & the Petition to all my Care 2 Friends. Published the 'LINK' to the Petition to my Facebook Wall & asked everyone to Share & Cross Post with their Friends and Contacts.

It has been well documented that animals help old & sick people in many ways. They can be merely a companion animal, which has a positive effect on the elderly person's quality of life. Animals are also sensitive to people that are elderly and/or sick & have a positive effect on their physical/mental health. Also animals are theraputic & provide great comfort to those patients that are terminally ill.

It makes absolutely no sense at all to take these Cats away from the Elder Daily Care Center. These Cats provide companionship, happiness & great comfort, which improves the quality of life for the elderly residents. Also it is a nice quiet, calm & safe haven for the Cats to live in. There are so many unwanted dogs & cats roaming the streets as strays. These cats could very well end up being homeless, abused or even destroyed. It is so wrong on every level and I cannot comprehend why the authorities have forced this action which has a negative impact on the elderly people and the Cats.

Thank you to everyone who has Noted & Commented on this Story & Signed the Petition. A friend of mine on Care 2 Moggy W, wrote to me & said she was very shocked & upset that there are only 218 signatures on this Petition. I too was shocked that there are so few Signatures on this Petition. Moggy W pointed out quite rightly, that animals especially cats, mean the world to an elderly person. They are Perfect Companions, bring a lot of Love & Happiness into their lives & it is so rewarding for an elderly person to know that they are providing Love & Care to these Cats. I am not elderly & I would be devastated if I did not have Cats in my life.

When I Signed this Petition, I also posted a 'link' to it on my Facebook Wall. As of July 2010 Facebook has more than 500 million active users. I cannot believe that so few people have Signed this Petition. I will Share the 'link' to the Petition on my Facebook Wall again.

If you have Noted & Commented on the Story & maybe you forgot to Sign the Petition, please do Sign this very worthwhile Petition. Please also Share the Petition with all your Friends, Contacts & any other Animal Welfare or Human Rights Websites you belong to.

I feel the same way as Moggy W & I would like to see the Signatures on this Petition exceed its target.
