alteration and destruction.

Their mission is to promote and ensure kind treatment

love animals. You can ask pet psycologist,
Kay Cox, for pet counseling advice, check out
Dr. Peppersauce's column(written by a Persian cat),
take the Pet Test, or simply kick back and enjoy an
informative web site put together by a person that
