"Mercury was found when he was about 4 days old (just over 5 ounces in weight, and eyes still shut, born about September 3rd/4th 2013), and we believe he was hit with a weed whacker since people in the neighbourhood had been doing yard work in tall grass shortly before he was found. He was taken to our vet, his wounds were cleaned up, and we were then called to care for him since we do a lot of bottle babies and special needs kitties for rescues. We fed him around the clock, and cleaned his wounds multiple times a day until they fully closed over. As far as bottle babies are concerned, he was actually very calm and content, only crying when he was hungry or wanting a cuddle. He grew well, and from the very start he would move on his own."
Mercury suffered severe injuries and has made remarkable progress. You will hear the heart warming story of raising Mercury.
Phone lines will be open to speak to both guests. For more information about rescue cats, please visit our web site.

WHAT IS "ANIMAL HOUSE"
"Animal House" is a television show concept that will renovate or build animal shelters in struggling communities. It’s family-friendly, inspirational and very close to becoming a reality. We are preparing to shoot the pilot episode and will then be in a position to lock a home for the show on network television, cable television or with an online content provider.
THE PILOT EPISODE OF "ANIMAL HOUSE" FEATURING ADAMS COUNTY PET RESCUE IN OTHELLO, WASHINGTON
Through their Facebook campaign, "Animal House" has been contacted by approximately 180 non-profit organizations in need of help. Adams County Pet Rescue in Othello, Washington is attempting to rebuild after their facility burned to the ground in 2009. Caring for mostly dogs and cats, they have a partial shelter and need assistance completing the building. The pilot episode will profile the animals of Othello who are in need of a safe haven and the dedicated individuals who are fighting for them.

There are three domestic breed cats that were created by cross breeding a domestic breed to a wild small cat specie resulting in a domestic cat with the coloring and physical characteristics of their ancestors. Most of these cats today have less than 10% wild cat in their lineage, but some animal rights groups are calling these cats a monstrocity, "frankencats" and is pushing the state of California to outright ban the sale, ownership, and breeding of these beautiful animals. The "Bengal" cat is the most popular of these breeds with over 100,000 in the USA.
Joining us today is certified cat behaviorist Marilyn Krieger who is an expert on the Savannah and Bengal breeds, and Savannah breeder and TICA Savannah Breed Chair Brigitte Cowell will dispell the myths and misconceptions of these breeds. Marilyn wrote an article about this subject on Catster. The backers of this legislation are the Animal Legal Defense Fund and Big Cat Rescue., who both did not respond to our invitations to join the show. ALDF is based in Portland, Oregon and has been successful in passing a ban in Alabama, Georgia, Hawaii, Nebraska, and Rhode Island.
