Noel - victim of a cat-napping

Hi everyone,I wonder if you can be on the lookout for Noel, a young kitten who was apparently stolen from a vehicle parked at Atalaya Elementary School, 721 Camino Cabra, sometime between 3-4 p.m. on Saturday. Noel, unfortunately, is not microchipped. She is, however, recently spayed, and was last seen wearing a red-and-green braided…See More

Profile Information

What kind of pet do you have and what's his or her name?
Our family is blessed with Zach, an 6-year-old Shar-pei and Labrador mix. Beta, my 14-year-old Shar-pei-Dalmatian mix, died at the end of April 2008. Sister, aka Bear, was adopted from The Animal Support Center in Las Vegas, NM. Jimmy, aka James Bond, was rescued from Clovis. Our latest addition is from the Santa Fe shelter, Mimi, also a Shar-Pei mix. Our beloved Chihuahua, Olivia, died at the beginning to 2012. In May, we adopted Dolly, a Chihuahua-Jack Russel Terrier mix. She was among three puppies we bottle-feed to maturity after their poor mother died. We also have a houseful of birds, including Joaquin, a cockatiel, budgies, parrotlets and canaries.

Hi, Ben. In case you are the one responsible for posting the AP article on GPS for pets, I want to thank you so very much for doing so. Using tracking devices for our pets has been a cause of mine for years. The products are becoming more advanced and affordable. Great to see more info on these fabulous systems to help people find their lost animals.

With appreciation,

Shari

Right now it is called Rouge Cat & Dog Soiree...but if you want to promote it as SFe shelter Doggie Disco also is what I meant!  :-)

Hi Ben,
It was fun to finally meet you at Barkin Ball. What a great event. I saw one other person wearing my Dogs Rock tee shirt! Could you give a Woof Out to all doggy owners in Santa Fe...our new Flea at the Santa Fe Downs (off 1-25 and 599) IS DOGGY FRIENDLY! They can even see Hula on the big "The FLEA" sign I painted that can be seen from the highway. It's a great destination to share with a doggy...and they should come see the best doggy tee shirts (for adults!) in the Big Tent aisle 1 ! we are there through Thanksgiving, Sat/Sun 9-3. Woof Y'all.

Lieber Ben,
Es war sehr schön, Dich vorhin zu sehen.
Ich hatte noch keine Zeit, etwas über unseren Ausflug heute nachmittag zu schreiben, aber ich werde es morgen tun. Ich nehme an, Du kannst Dir denken, warum ich auf Deutsch schreibe…

It is, though there are two (other was a reporter in Kansas). Been with AP for four years. Cover the coal industry nationally. Say hi to your mother. I am jealous of the trip up north.

Hi Ben. Then I moved from the Midwest to West Virginia and tracked you down. I may have to drop in, since I have family there in Santa Fe.
