Starling murmuration is something so unique and beautiful, you just have to see it to believe it.

In Southern Israel, this phenomenon occurs when thousands of starlings fly in sync and create shifting shapes in the sky. Like a school of fish or transforming clouds…but more incredible.

Just when I thought I’ve seen it all, here comes something like this and I’m blown away!

All animals deserve compassionate care, but is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are “ear tipped” so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.

The Animal Rescue Site is offering a chance to help these animals. Click this link to learn how you can help stray cats everywhere!
