Animals are something that I hold dear to my heart, and making sure every animal has a home is a huge priority for me. Every week, I will feature a different dog and cat that are looking for a home from the Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption. APRA is a non-profit, volunteer-based, no-kill shelter dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs and cats so they can be adopted into safe and loving forever homes. Please check out these cuties!
CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen are on a talk tour together as AC2, Deep Talk and Shallow Tales! Kaedy’s a BIG fan of both, and got a chance to speak to the 2 ACs recently about their show at Cobb Energy Center Saturday, June 20th. Listen to the full interview below or click here.
Cox Media Group National Content Desk One Missouri man didn’t get the chance to pass go, but he did go straight to jail. Too bad it was a real jail and not the spot on a Monopoly board. According to the Stone County Sheriff’s Department, John Litton, 69, participated in an annual Monopoly tournament with others in the community. Tournament organizers told Litton he would not be invited to participate in this year’s tournament due to unsportsmanlike behavior at the event last year. According to WXIN, a disgruntled Litton arrived at the 7th Annual Stone County OACAC Monopoly Tournament in Branson West, where he started a fight with the organizers after hearing of their decision. He was arrested Friday and was charged with multiple counts of third-degree assault and disturbing the peace. No serious injuries were reported.
Cox Media Group National Content Desk Pets are often reunited with their owners after becoming lost thanks to microchips that link the animals with their owners’ information. What doesn’t happen often are homecomings of pets that have gone missing for more than a decade. One Iowa family is the exception. Jill Petticord was a young girl when she adopted Ralph as a kitten from an animal shelter in 1998. The cat went missing three years later. Last week, Ralph showed up at the animal shelter again. A microchip connected the cat back to the Petticord family. “I don’t have a cat,” Rita Korn, Jill Petticord’s mother, told the shelter when they called her. “They said, ‘Yeah, you do,’” she added. “I’m just glad that he gets to finish out his life with me and not somewhere out on the streets,” Petticord told WISHTV. Ralph lost lots of weight and fur during his time as a stray, but the family is working on helping him regain his health.
It’s hard to believe we’ve know David Bowie for over 40 years! Or have we ever really known him? We sure didn’t know he’s been battling cancer for 18 months. I’m so sad this morning. Click here for Melissa Riggieri’s column on ajc.com today with video of a great live Bowie performance.
