National Hug Your Cat Day!! Post Card Blitz for our endangered pets - May 3rd, 2007

Those of us not affected by having a companion sickened or killed by recalled pet food need to have our voices heard. The stress of trying to find food that is safe for our beloved companions has taken it's toll. Even when you think you've found a food that is safe it may be recalled three days later. The only people not affected by this poisoning are those who do not have cats or dogs.

On May 3rd, mail a post card for each of your pets to your senator. If you don't know who your representative is they can be found here - http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senator s_cfm.cfm

Do not be rude, do not use foul language. Simply tell them that you too are affected by the recalls and the lack of regulation in the pet food industry. Let them know that it has been stressful, time consuming and upsetting to you, as a pet guardian, to find food for your companion. Use your own words, as long as you get the message across. You may also wish to send post cards to the following, but it's not mandatory.

Anderson Cooper and CNN are still reporting that only 17 animals have been injured by the pet food recall. They need a wake up call. We hope that by letting them know this has affected more than the 17 killed in Menu Foods testing they may take steps to protect our pet (and human) food as soon as possible.
