Very urgent petition!

I don't know if you've read it or not, but Skeezix has a petition on the blog he and his mom do for Catster: The Cat's Meow. There's a resident therapy cat at a nursing home in Ohio who is facing eviction by the new administrators of the home. The cat has been confined to the room of the resident he "adopted", and was being allowed to stay there, but the administrators have since changed their mind and are going to evict him. The resident's doctor even wrote a note saying that this would be very detrimental to the resident's emotional health, and they're ignoring it!

Click here for the story and the address to write letters in support of Snoopy and his human friend.

As a fellow therapy cat, I am outraged at this! Therapy animals are pets and don't have any government-sanctioned rights like service animals, but these people should know enough about the power of purr to let Snoopy stay!

Please, please, everyone, write to them! Mommy is going to!

We couldn't believe it when we read the story. It's so mean. There is no other word for it. It's mean to the people in the nursing home, it's mean to the kitty, it's mean to the families who feel comforted at the knowledge their loved ones are recieving kitty therapy.
