Kitten Found! - 07/14/14

Hello all- Last Thursday night my fiancee stopped to get gas on his way home from work in Antioch and there was a poor little kitten abandoned at the gas station. He's an animal lover just like I am, and he didn't have the heart to leave the little fur baby. The kitten spent the ride home in his tool box in his work van and he was so terrified. We made him a little bed and snuggled him up with food and water in our guest bathroom as soon as they got in. Saturday morning I took him to Murphy Road Animal Hospital for his first check up. Turns out the little buddy is about 5 weeks old and weighs only 2 pounds He's completely healthy, and the nurse there said she really thinks he must have just been dropped off at the gas station for a few hours before Danny found him.

We'd love to keep him (haven't named him yet), but we already have two rescue kitties and don't have room for a third. Luckily *this is why I LOVE social media sometimes* I think I found a family for him!! I posted his pics on my facebook, and someone is interested! I'm taking the kitten for a meet and greet to make sure he gets along with the family dog- updates to come! I just can't understand how someone could abandon an innocent little kitten! P.S. He has the best personality and is a cuddle monster- the perfect fit for a loving family!

CANADA-TOPLESS PROTEST

WATERLOO, Ontario (AP) -- Dozens of Canadian women -- and men -- have something to get off their chests. They rallied over the weekend to support a woman's right to go shirtless. The "Bare With Us" protest was organized by three sisters who were recently stopped by a police officer for biking topless. They noted that women have had the right to go bare-chested in Ontario since 1996. Musician Alysha Brilla says when she and her sisters were stopped they told the officer he was in the wrong. Brilla says when they started to record the interaction on a cellphone, the officer said he was just checking the bells and lights on their bikes.

OUTLAW BEER

BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- Outlaw beer has been out-lawyered. Idaho's craft Payette Brewery is changing the name of their Outlaw IPA. Founder Mike Francis tells the Idaho Statesman the move is prompted by a cease-and-desist letter from another brewer. Francis says an Illinois-based brewery owns the trademark. He says "Outlawyered" has been thrown out as an option for a new name. Francis adds they'll rebrand by the end of the year.

MINI COOPER-BRIDGE CROSSING

MACKINAW CITY, Mich. (AP) -- It's a maxi Mini effort. More than 1,300 Mini Coopers crossed the Mackinac Bridge in northern Michigan on Saturday. It was fun, but it wasn't a world's record. In 2009, 1,450 Minis drove single-file in London. The Bay City Times says there were license plates from Alaska, Texas, California and Colorado during the weekend Mini drive. The Mini lovers say they'll try again in 2017.

TOY FACTORY-HOUSING

JONESVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- Barbie is long gone. But new residents could soon be moving in. An old factory in southern Michigan is getting a new life as an apartment building. The Kiddie Brush and Toy factory in Jonesville has been quiet since the 1970s. But by next spring, the owners hope to have nearly 50 housing units with one or two bedrooms. Over the decades the factory produced everything from cars to Barbie doll parts. City Manager Jeff Gray told the Hillsdale Daily News the redevelopment project is something they've been looking forward to for a long time.
