Mellow Yellow Monday : People and businesses with a soft spot for animals
I was at a cafe at Omaha beach. Outside at the Alfredo dining, near the columns, were bowls of water for dogs. Good job, cafe proprietor.
Judith was my neighbour in NTU, in Singapore. She was the founder of Cat Cafe and invited me to be one of the founding members. Though she had left for UK, she is still very involve with Cat Cafe.
"We're still right here in Wootton Wawen, a village of about 1200 people in Warwickshire, near Birmingham, in the British W. Midlands. I continue to be involved with animal welfare in my helping role for the NTU Cat Management Network and as a supporter here in the UK of the Avon Valley Cat Rescue, where I periodically clean cages and help with fund-raising activities such as their bazaars. I will be taking on the running of our local public library here, together with 58 other volunteers, now that the county government has decided to close the local branch of the county library system and turn it over to a community enterprise (ours.)"
What a wonderful woman!
Today, she circulated this email:
A cat caregiver has asked for help on Facebook to recover someone's lost pet. Poster is attached. If you stay in Bedok North or have friends/family there, please watch for this kitty and forward the poster to your contacts.

Not much yellow in this photo, I needed a TV for this story.
I normally don't do advertisements for companies, but I make an exception for Harvey Norman, in appreciation for their generousity. Beside, it is a very yellow photo.
