Cats Need Homes

If you live in Northern California, and are looking to adopt a kitty...

42 Cats in Los Gatos Need Homes

Dear Best Friends Members, For years, the Magills have lived close to a park in Los Gatos that was a convenient dumping ground for unwanted cats.For years, Doug Magill and his wife have helped the cats abandoned near their home by providing them with medical care, food, shelter and love. But now the Magills are the ones who need help. As the couple has grown older, it has become harder for them to care for the 42 felines who live inside their home or outside on their property. Recently, someone called San Jose Animal Control to complain. The officer who came out to visit the Magills could see that they were trying their best with the cats, who appeared to be healthy and friendly. He didn't want to confiscate the cats and take them to the shelter, so he agreed to work with the Magills as long as they continued trying to find other homes for the cats. The Magills have managed to find homes for a few of the cats on their own, but they both have health problems that make it difficult to spend much time posting flyers or attending adoption events. You can help them by spreading the word about these cats, many of whom are Siamese mixes. Please forward this email to anyone you know who might be able to assist the Magills in finding homes for their rescued cats. If you need more information or would like to adopt a cat yourself, please contact Doug Magill directly: 408-356-1602 or at
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Having done the abandoned cat rescue thing, I really feel for the Magills. They must be heartbroken. If we already didn't have our quota of rescued cats, I'd take a couple myself.

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Merry Christmas!

(I'm still hopeful, that come the new year, I can get the blog fixed, so I haven't quite yet given up hope.)

Just wanted to thank everyone who has emailed with suggestions and pleas not to leave forever. While the comment problem isn't fixed, Russ is going to take one last look and see if he can get them working. But it may be a few more weeks till he can fit it into his schedule.

Until then, if you really miss me, you can always look for me on my Live Journal, though there's no politics, just regular old stuff :)
