What cause this madness and what is being done to protect our children. The answers are just as frightening. Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" at 7-8:30AM EST , Monday, April 7th and let's take a look this issue.
Each and everyday we will try to find a way to get out of the pickle barrel we have all found ourselves sharing.

"A compassionate soul whom has been dealing with pined up emotion memories of pains and anguish Abuse & Neglect." An advocate for and in behalf of any individual with talent that elitist would through away or out right ignore. ("Honesty is total absence of any intent too deceive you me or anyone else; Because, There is someone or something that knows everything; and that one is GOD..."D.N.)
Education is something NO one can ever take away from anyone along with the power associated there with; However there are people with whom Abuse & Neglect the powers that are associated with education which they had received. I believe in Justice even for those whom are corrupt; Abused & Neglected by those whom are supposed to protect and serve as peace officers, Lawyers, and even Judges... "The way a person walks in life; makes more noise than ever can or will be said."
Every day it seems there are new stories of cat or animal hoarding in the news. You know the cases: The ones where dozens of cats are being housed in terrible living situations, being neglected and abused, and eventually seized by local or federal officials. In this broadcast of Ask The Cat Doctor Talk Radio, we discuss this form of animal abuse and neglect, what drives it, and much more.
To help us understand WHY people hoard animals, Dr. Karen Cassiday, board member at both the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and Beyond OCD Chicago and faculty at the International Obsessive Compulsive Foundation Behavior Therapy Institute and at the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science, joins us to share her expertise. Dr. Cassiday received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 1990 from the Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science and is nationally recognized as an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders in children, teens and adults. You've seen her on Animal Planet, TODAY, and more.
We also talk about some things that have been in the news recently and how they apply to your cats! And as always, we take your questions, whether on this topic or any other topic, since no question is too big or too small!

George Dahmer was better known to his fans as “Chief White Owl” one of the original wrestlers for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF). George began his career in the 50‘s and continued long into the 70‘s with the Federation, as one of their most popular and loved celebrity wrestlers. He finished his career in the early 80‘s.
In later years George developed senile dementia and was eventually admitted to Columbia Hospital for evaluation. George was 72 years old.
At the time of admittance to Lake Worth Manor, George was fully able to walk, talk, feed himself and take care of other personal needs.
After several weeks in the home, George’s upper denture was missing, along with his shoes, clothes and other belongings. The staff responded by putting someone else’s shoes on George, two sizes too small, causing blistering on his feet.
George was chemically restrained with off-label drugs which are prohibited for use on the elderly.
George's stay in Lake Worth Manor was 63 days. George was severely neglected at Lake Worth Manor. Florida Department of Children and Families -Elder Abuse was notified and so was the Ombudsman. Lake Worth was charged with Negligence and fined $5,000.00.
George lost all residents rights as a result of the complaint and as a form of retaliation for the complaint.
On April 30, 2008 George was transferred by ambulance to Heartland of Boynton Beach, Florida. The Staff cleaned him up and then reported the horrific news- dehydration, malnutrition, lost 32 pounds in 8 weeks, decubitus ulcers on both heels of his feet and tailbone; stage 4. Both rotary caps turned in both shoulders.
George Dahmer passed away at 3:16 pm on May 23,2008.
Many elderly adults are abused in their own homes, in relatives’ homes, and even in facilities responsible for their care. If you suspect that an elderly person is at risk from a neglectful or overwhelmed caregiver, or being preyed upon financially, it’s important to speak up. Join us as we discuss the warning signs of elder abuse, the risk factors, and how you can prevent and report the problem.
FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY – This week on Universal Broadcast with Tracey Booker, Tracey is dealing with the hard topics of physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse, neglect. Author, advocate, and inspirational speaker, Cynthia Luce will share from the heart, a myriad of experiences from the pages of her epic book, “Invisible Girl”. This show will be one that you won’t want to miss, and it will encourage you greatly.
Ms. Luce has applied the principles of opting for a mindset change from that of victimization to that of a champion of her own life, based upon a strong will to be transformed by the renewing of her mind; to become restored to the dynamic being that she is; and to live an abundant life free from any type of bondage, prison or shackle. Her story will inspire you to become whole, and to get to a place that enables us to help others; to show up and not allow ourselves to be “invisible”. We all have a light that must shine brilliantly.
She lives by this advice: “This life is yours so own it. Refuse to be unseen, unheard and invisible as it is your presence and voice that will help make it better. Do not allow your pain to define you or society to neglect you. Use your history as fuel to thrust you into a better tomorrow. Live with passion, share your power and speak inspirational words that help others heal.”
We encourage parents, educators, clergy, therapists, child advocates, and anyone else who works with children to tune in to this show.
Please join us! There is a UNIVERSAL BROADCAST going on!
You are invited to study our Hebrew Series with Chapter 2.
