I give you a Way to Go lady!!!
It is so refreshing to watch people that have the same concerns work together. Those who wish to tear down the efforts aren't needed, let them go work in their own states. I think this is the start of something great ...
Such an uplifting and hopeful read. I wish Rebecca Katz the best of the best with the movement.
Rebecca Katz is a smart, resourceful, fierce defender of animals. Oakland is lucky to have her help.
The way she was treated in San Francisco was appalling. All she was doing was advocating for the resources to do her job. In a place as wealthy as San Francisco there was no excuse for not funding ACC adequately.
I wish Ms. Katz the best of luck in Oakland. Welcome to Oakland. I hope you find what you need here. Please know we are glad you are here.
Although I agree with the general move towards raw for cats, grinding bones removes three major benefits found in eating raw, unground bones.
1) Raw, unground bones act as "nature's toothbrush" for cats;
2) They provide a physical crunch pleasure for those sharp teeth. (A major reason kibble is popular is that it faintly approximates crunching small bones such as found in mice and small birds.)
3) They also provide emotional release for animals whose teeth were intended to gnaw on raw meat and raw bones in the wild.
That said, the best size bird bones for cats (commercially available) are quail.
Awesome to see the immediate improvements at OAS since Katz came on board. I'm sure that place will continue on its upward trend with her at the helm.
Ms. Lindquist should reach out to her southern neighbors in Ventura County which celebrated achieving No Kill status in 2014. http://www.simivalleyacorn.com/news/2015-01-23/Front_Page/County_shelters_celebrate_nokill_status.html?fb_action_ids=10204101121381784&fb_action_types=og.likes
A whole new world at OAS. It's so good to hear someone new is there, and the OPD is out!
Such great news! OAS & PALS East Bay should be a win-win for Oakland's animals!

Yay!! So looking forward!
I thinking not many people understand, that if you do not get your animal fixed this can happen with any species. Don't get one if you can't get it fixed nor keep it's shots up too date. I applaud these groups as the cat population is through the roof. I have had too TNR in Castro Valley and Hayward. I continue to feed them as some are now 12 yrs. old. Annie
Alex Hackett, cats are killing machines. They are non-native predators introduced into a foreign ecosystem, so of course they are decimating wildlife. Would it make it more meaningful for you if these birds were burrowing owls, as are found in the Presidio, instead of, say, sparrows and blackbirds?
To see people value non-native predatory cats over native wildlife makes me sick.
We have been plan to open a cat cafe and we actually were thinking of open in SF but i just heard that two veterans are going to open it. So we are thinking to open in Concord area or Hayward area since SF and Oakland cat cafes are opening.
Terrific! Now that dog breeders are realizing that vanity breeding is ultimately cruelly dangerous to the dogs, the cat world is taking up the slack. Humans just can't help but f__k things up, can they?
The former Bakesale Betty location at Broadway and Grand has been vacant for years now. Perhaps Alison BaraKAT would be interested in a sublease.
How about the ground-floor commercial space at 7th & Broadway? Serve donuts, and there's a ready-made, steady clientele with the police headquarters and a pot dispensary across the street. Just don't de-claw the cats; they're there to keep an eye on the cops, and if need be to remind them to respect the locals! ;-)
They might also help to chase away the rats that hang out under the freeway, making the Broadway undercrossing a bit less forbidding, and increasing foot traffic to Jack London. We need this here more than they do in Temescal.
I would love to have one up here in the Everett Washington State area I love cats but with pet deposit being so high I could never get one and this would take care of my kitty cravings
trap neuter return does help bird populations since it controls feral cat population growth, no new kittens adding to the population means less feral cats, which means less dead birds in the long run.
