Now this is such a neat thing I had to post it - even though it's about kittens and cats - the Atlantic Cat Hospital is putting on a little class called "Kitty Care 101" - at 6:30pm on the 3rd Thursday of the month they're going to answer questions new cat and kitten owners will have and cover topics like nutrition, vaccinations, parasite control, and feline behaviour - I think that is just awesome. The Atlantic Cat Hospital is on Quinpool Road in Halifax
Here is something to watch out for if you have a high definition television - this was in the newspaper this week - it would seem that there has been a documentary crew filming at the Hope For Wildlife facility in Seaforth - they've got one season in the can and are beginning to shoot a 2nd season. That must be quite lucrative for the organization, I'd say!
