This is a lovely heart-warming live video about the pets-humans relationship. I have just watched it and am still moved by it. I would suggest you, if you love cats, to go the VOKRA web site (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association). They are a non-kill shelter, who save cats from the miseries of street life, treat them medically and offer them for adoption. I adopted a female cat from them, and we love her very-very much. As opposed to VOKRA, the SPCA, which "protects animals against cruelty," in fact kills the dogs and cats turned over to them ("Puts them to sleep") if they are not adopted within 3 months. But VOKRA is a no-kill shelter; they keep the rescued cats indefinitely. Years ago I wanted to adopt a big, calm, responsive, friendly male cat from SPCA, but they refused to give him to me, for they wanted to feel safe that I "wouldn't return him to them." Maybe they put him to sleep afterwards, because the manager of the house where I rented did not want to give in writing, as SPCA required, that they accept pets. I moved to another place, and the other manager accepted my lovely VOKRA cat, Jamie. So I suggest you check out VOKRA - they also need some financial support from cat lovers, as they are an independent organization, without Gov. funding.

A look at dogs, cats, and those who love them. Cute, and tends to pull at the heartstrings.
