Roman Cats Turn A Historic Site Into Cat Haven

In Rome, many stray and feral cats have found a haven amid the ruins at Torre Argentina. The Julius Caesar’s assassination site has been turned into a cat sanctuary for many homeless cats.
The Torre Argentina Roman Cat Sanctuary spay and neuter these cats and keep them healthy and fed. “People are interested more in the cats than in monuments,” says Lia Dequel, one of the shelter’s founders. “The two together are fantastic… because monuments come alive if you see a cat lying on it, or jumping from one pillar to another.” (npr)
Torre Argentina is home to about 250 feline friends, sheltered amongst the oldest temples in Rome (400-300 BC). Seven days a week volunteers from different countries, feed, clean and look after them.
In 2012 alone, they spayed and neutered 3013 cats as well as 125 cats placed in homes.

Turkish company Pugedon recently introduced an ingenious recycling box that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and stray animals. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well. This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food.

Tumblr, I have had a hell of a morning. I was running late to work already, and as I was driving in this dog was in the middle of the street heading towards the highway. As I parked, she was already walks over the barricades. I always have an extra leash in my car, ran out into the rain, and grabbed her. She was found in Dallas (Carrollton/Farmers Branch Area) off 35 and Beltline. She has no microchip. Definitely a Husky Mix of some kind, totally gives the derpy Husky face and has the tail.

I hoping someone is looking for her. If you could please share, I would be so grateful.
