Latest Animal and Pet News - Laurie Kay Olson

I write on the latest animal news and most interesting animal stories. I come to PetsLady with a background in print journalism for the Colorado Daily newspaper. Some of my favorite assignments there included theraputic horseback riding and Canine Companions for Independence, so this is a natural fit. Living in Boulder, Colorado, where wildlife abounds, I am frequently dealing with deer, fox, skunks, squirrels, rabbits, snakes, birds, and mice. My cat, Naomi, helps round out the menagerie around me.

A Hemingway's Cat

Cats are known for being able to land on their feet and this fact is certainly true of Hemingway's Cats. Well, figuratively that is. The colony of six-toed cats still live in the home-turned-museum in Key West, Florida.
