Meet this Week’s “Caturday Cat”- Beyonce

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
beyonceBeyoncé is a sweet young lady looking for her new forever home where she can relax and become part of your family. She has spent time in two different foster homes, so we have gotten a sense of her true personality. She loves to chat and tell you all about the chipmunks she spies on out the window, or the birds nesting in the tree outside. Right now, she is missing all of the wonderful sights of a spring front yard, because she is still awaiting her forever home. This girl loves a good cuddle, on her own terms, and she has excellent litter box manners. She would likely prefer a quiet home without other rambunctious fur-friends. Could you be the right family for her?

Meet this Week’s “Friday FurBall” -Shamus

Posted on by Courtney

shamusMeet our fabulous guy “Shamus” – isn’t he a beauty? This lovely guy came into our care through no fault of his own. He has lived with other small breed dogs and may enjoy living with a friend again. He would love to find his perfect mature quiet home where he can learn all the wonderful things life has to offer. Right now Shamus is very timid in new situations, and would like an experienced owner to slowly introduce him to new things. He is shy at first, but once he gets to know you he will never leave your side. If you want a forever lap companion, Shamus would be your perfect match!

RMC – Sexual Assault

The Royal Military College of Canada has formally apologized after a sexual assault expert was subjected to harassment during workshops at the Kingston military university.
Brigadier General Al Meinzinger sent the formal apology to the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres in February.  It took five months to issue the apology after award winning educator Julie Lalonde complained she was laughed at openly, subjected to cat calls and other disrespectful behaviour.  Lalonde had delivered four Saturday talks at RMCC last fall and says the cadets were the most hostile audience she has ever had.
Miezinger says staff is trying to identify the Cadets involved in the allegations.

Brooke will be running against NDP candidate Daniel Beals, the Liberals Mark Gerretsen and Green Party candidate Nathan Townend.

Council – K&P Trail

Kingston city council has voted to have staff prepare plans to complete the K&P Trail…but it has been warned about the cost.

Community Services Commissioner Lanie Hurdle says work to complete the city’s portion of the trail could cost millions of dollars.

Solar Project

That massive solar project you can see part of from the 401 just west of Kingston will be generating power starting this fall.  It’s being built by Samsung and is called Kingston Solar.

Samsung is guaranteeing the municipalities $7.9 million over 20-years for infrastructure, health and wellness and environmental projects.

Meet this Week’s “Caturday Cat” -Peanut

Posted on by Courtney

Caturday 600x200
15-355A-PeanutPeanut is a beautiful calico with an even more beautiful personality. She has sweet soft meow that warms your heart. She is also affectionate and loves to be petted and snuggled once she gets to know you of course. She can be a bit worried when she is in a new environment and will need time to settle and investigate all the new sights and smells. She will start to settle after a few minutes and will come to you for a pet and then will head back out to investigate a new section she has missed during her initial investigation. Once she is fully settled, we are sure she would enjoy looking for a window to lay next to so she can see the outdoor critters and activities going on during the daily adventures. But more than anything she is looking for a loving family she can curl up next to or steal a spot on your lap and enjoy a good cuddle.
