Woman finds missing cat during interview outside tornado-ruined home

By jim Published: May 23, 2011

Then check out this video, below, of Judy Pugh, whose home was destroyed by the tornadoes that swept through Tuscaloosa, Alabama on April 27. The ferocious twister left at least 39 dead in Tuscaloosa alone.

Pugh cheerfully told a local TV stateion that she rushed to the hallway with her three cats when the mile-wide tornado hit. The roof fell on top of her, but miraculously she and two of her cats were all in one piece. "I tried to get to my hands and knees but I couldn't. I heard the young men calling 'Ms. Judy, Ms. Judy, are you in there?'" she recalls.

What to Know When Traveling With Your Pet

By jim Published: May 18, 2011

SUMMER vacation is no longer just for two-legged travelers. Room service menus for Fido, massages for over-stressed terriers and tabbies, cushy beds for canines: many hotels have been ratcheting up the pet amenities. Best Western has even hired Cesar Millan of National Geographic Channel’s “Dog Whisperer” to be the chain’s pet travel expert.

The problem is getting your pet to the destination.

The cat with the loudest purr in the world

By jim Published: May 10, 2011

Smokey, the 12-year-old cat from Northampton, England, has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records for having the loudest purr in the world.

Most cats purr at around 25 decibels, but Smokey has been recorded at an average of 80 decibels. When measured at close range, her purrs reach 92 decibels, equal to a lawnmower, a hair dryer, or a Boeing 737 coming in to land.

Pet Adoption Event Returns to Cleveland Metroparks Zoo June 11

By jim Published: May 10, 2011

Each year, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo teams up with more than 20 area humane organizations to host a pet adoption event like none other – Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo!

This year, more than 100 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies, many of which will be available for immediate adoption, will be on the Zoo’s Ticket Plaza with their humane organizations from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 11. More than 750 pets have been adopted through the event since it started in 2001.



“This event is designed to give people looking for an animal companion an overview of the organizations out there that might be able to help them,” said Sue Allen, the Zoo’s Director of Marketing & Public Relations. “We’re proud to provide the venue to help these adoptable dogs and cats find permanent, loving homes.”

Participating rescue groups and shelters will offer advice on choosing the right pet and how best to care for it. All dogs and cats will have received a health check-up and age-appropriate vaccinations. Each organization sets its own adoption fees and policies, and some require a waiting period.

The event is FREE and takes place outside the Zoo under tents on the Ticket Plaza. For health and safety reasons, visitors should leave their current pets at home.

Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with hours extended to 7 p.m. on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Admission is $11 per person, $8 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children younger than 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 90 and 480.
