Update on vet who shot cat with an arrow

Following a two-day hearing in Austin, the Texas Board of Veterinary Medical Examiners is still probably at least five months away from making a decision on disciplining a Brenham practitioner who boasted about killing a cat with a bow and arrow.
Dr. Kristen Lindsey, a licensed veterinarian since 2012, caused a storm of controversy in June when she shot an orange tabby with a bow and arrow and posted a photo on Facebook.
Following an uproar from animal welfare advocates, the veterinary board filed a formal complaint in October to revoke Lindsey's license.

City Dog Austin: 'Happy Cinco de Mayo'

iPet Companion to offer extra playtime for their rescued cats and for internet users

27 shelters partner with iPet Companion to offer extra playtime for their rescued cats and for internet users.
While this service isn’t new, it has grown from two shelters to 27 over the past five years. iPet Companion first tested its product at Idaho Humane Society in 2011, and expanded its reach across the United States. Only one shelter in Texas participates: you can play with the kittens at Central Texas SPCA in Leander, Texas.
Navigating the camera feels a little weird at first, but soon you’ll get the hang of it.
