Special Note from Ray: If you’re a long-time listener to GAR!, you’ve probably heard a cat mewing in the background many times. More than likely, that cat was my pal Dewey, who I adopted in 2002 as a kitten. I found Dewey mewing his little head off in the adoption section of a Petsmart. I came over and asked to see him; he jumped over to me, crawled up my one arm, down the other, and went to sleep in the crook of my arm. We haven’t been separated since. I didn’t adopt him; he adopted me.

On Thursday, July 30th, Dewey went to the Big Farm, where he can roam and play. He was a champion mouser, and an amazing cat despite the onset of blindness midway through his life. He showed me more love, affection, and trust than any other animal I’ve ever known, and I will miss him terribly.

If you’re reading this, please consider making a small donation to your local animal shelter. They rock, and they could probably use the money. Or, if you have the room in your life and the love in your heart, consider adopting a shelter animal of your own.

Thanks to all of you for listening, and we’ll be back next week!
