Well after a few hectic days at work, I am finally getting an evening off ~ so I'm able to blog again ~ Snow is totally fine after his meal the other day. His big eyes are brighter than ever and his long hair are growing back (when he came to me few months ago, he had lots of matted hair that caused most of his fur to shed - his new hair now are smooth and straight). Forest is doing great with her babies who are beginning to support themselves and try to walk.
In other good news - the cat blog reached its ten thousand visitors on the last day of July - I think it's nice progress for the first three months of a new blog/site. I hope people keep visiting and learn more about the great cats of the world. The long term goal is of course to some day start a conservation program/sanctuary for big cats at some point in future when I get settled - but that's still a long time off. So for the moment I think I ought to keep highlighting the great people who are already working for threatened and abused animals. I'll try and mention an animal sanctuary/conservation program monthly and hope some of the readers go across to their website and help these people in their noble contributions for the vulnerable.
This month's highlight belongs to the Shambala Preserve of the Roar Foundation. Located on the edge of the Mojave Desert, forty miles northeast of Los Angeles, California - the Shambala Reserve houses a large number of wild cats - it takes the abandoned and abused animals who desperately need our love and care. I've gone through their site and I think these people are doing great work and need our support. The sanctuary is presided over by the marvelous actress Tippi Hedren whose great work in the Alfred Hitchcock thriller 'Marnie' I came across recently.

Meanwhile there is lots of excitement in the house as the kittens have stepped up their meowing and their attempts at standing and walking.
