I have followed his account on Twitter, a kind-hearted man who cares for these abandoned cats in a small sanctuary in Aleppo.  You can see him at work in this YouTube video. 



I was saddened to read today that his sanctuary was hit by airstrikes, killing his dog Hope and some cats. He survived the bombings, but please keep this man and his good deeds in your prayers and thoughts.

Can A Cat Survive A Rattlesnake Bite?

We hear about dogs and rattlesnake bites a lot, especially where I live in the state of Arizona. But, what about cats? Can they survive and is there a rattlesnake bite treatment?

Yes, they can survive, but timing may be everything! It acts mostly as a neurotoxin in cats, which can cause paralysis and mentation changes. They can also suffer from coagulation problems and vasculitis like dogs. Typically prognosis is not good, but if they receive treatment quickly (yes they can have antivenin) then they may have a better chance of survival. Check out this article link for more info!
