These are the recent articles. Please share this page. The underlying purpose of this site is to improve animal welfare. This site is an extension of PoC, a site dedicated to the welfare of cats; domestic, stray, feral and wild. I report on the current news stories regarding the relationship between animals and people in the context of animal welfare. I comment on the stories so this page is not only about news concerning the animal human relationship but my thoughts on that news.
