SIMBA NEEDS A FOSTER HOME
Simba is blind -- but don't think it slows him down for a minute or gets in the way of his being hyper affectionate. Simba recently came to Illinois Humane as one among 16 kitties, all from a single household overwhelmed trying to care for too many animals. Simba is a neutered male, approximately 9 years old.
Simba needs a foster home! Simba is active -- in fact, he seldom stops moving. He is very trusting and bold about exploring his environs. We expect he will slow down and relax when he grows accustom to a new home. When completely new to a physical setting, he vocalizes regularly so it is fairly easy to keep track of him.
Simba will soon be ready to find his permanent home -- we are accepting applications to adopt as well. Simba had a fairly bad case of flea dermatitis. His coat is recovering remarkably well, but the underlying skin is scabby. He has been treated with antibiotics, and is healing quickly. Simba, despite his disability, can locate a litter box in a nanosecond and he uses it very well.
Illinois Humane is currently in need of additional foster homes to accommodate the large number of cats coming in from this single household. Many have no special need other than to be loved.

The domestic dog and Grizzly Bear both are in the taxonomic order Carnivora, in the branch Caniforma (dog-like) families. All you dog lovers, help your pup's wild bear cousins!!
Stop the Hunt in British Columbia.
Bear viewing is a sustainable economic model, based on healthy bear populations, The bear hunt is a trophy hunt -- Grizzly meat is not palatable, even First Nation sustenance hunters do not harvest Grizzly. Scientific uncertainty surrounds current bear population estimates. One sure way of avoiding overkill due to incorrect guesstimates is to Stop the Hunt!
Donate to buy up hunting rights. Raincoast has already purchased the rights to two large BC areas, to protect Grizzlys and it also holds the rights to the area where the Spirit bears are found, The organization is gearing up to buy rights to additional areas.
And the other branch of Carnivora? That would be Feliformia, cat-like families. Cat lovers, please help your kitty's (ies') wild counterparts:
