  • Webster sponsors CCAS ‘vetting’ for cats

    Homes for cats and kittens are one of Carroll County Animal Support’s toughest tasks.

    It is CCAS policy that the animals will be “fully vetted” (meaning they will be either spayed or neutered and have all up-to-date shots) before they are adopted.

    Dog adoptions require both an approved adoption application and an adoption fee.

    As cats and kittens are difficult to get adoption fees for, the group gets donations to have the cat “fully vetted.”

    This ensures that CCAS cats will not be producing more cats.

  • Grandchildren join in to create their own pizzas

    You may wonder what I have been doing since my last column.  I can honestly tell you…everything. I’ve taken up knitting again, which I probably haven’t done for more than 30 years. It really helps with the evening snacking issue, too. Who wants to get their hands all gooey with something sweet and knit at the same time? Me!
