Cleo, a Bassett Hound owned by Genny Brown, nurses seven-week old kittens from the Westfield Homeless Cat Project. (Photo by Genny Brown) Working at the Post-Gazette, I receive quite a bit of mail. I know you're surprised because I am a pooch, but I do get mail. I have a following of pooch fans as well as cat fans. Recently I received an e-mail from Kathy Meyer, a volunteer at the Westfield Cat Project in Westfield, MA. She thought I might like to share this story with my readers. Title: Dog Nurses Homeless Kittens. A sur- prised Genny Brown got some unexpected help in caring for the kittens she fosters for the Westfield Homeless Cat Project (WHCP} when her dog, Cle0, nursed them. Cle0, a Bassett Hound, has nine of her own four- week old puppies. Genny explained that Cleo let the kittens nurse contentedly for an hour. These kittens, h~ ready for adoption, are among hundreds of cats and kittens that WHCP rescues and re-homes each year. WHCP holds adoptions on Thursdays from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm and Saturdays from 11:00 am-3:00 pm at 1124 East Mountain Road, Westfield, MA 01085. This is kitten season so there are many beautiful kittens and adult cats that need homes. With the huge influx of homeless cats, cash contributions are urgently needed spaying/neutering and vet care. Checks can be mailed to the address mentioned above. For further information, please e-mail denisesinico@hotmail.com As all my readers know all shelters for pets ask for contributions. That is the only way they can keep these shelters open and help ALL the animals that are in need, and we have quite a few of them. I understand the economy is not the best right now but a few dollars can be sent'to the above address and, believe me, for everyone that contributes the animals will be happy they can be taken care of. Be kind, give up one ice cream cone for the summer and donate $3.00 to the shel- ter. You will feel greatly rewarded for think- ing of the Westfield Homeless Cat Project. I thank you, Genny Brown, for your story and appreciate that you felt I could do some good by writing this article for you. That's all for nowl REMEMBER TO PICK UP AFTER YOUR PET. KEEP OUR NORTH END SIDEWALKS AND STREETS CLEAN. ATTENTION BOSTON LATIN ACADEMY PARENTS, STUDENTS, AND ALUMNI Boston Latin Academy (BLA) parents and students recently learned that the BPS is considering relocating BLA to Hyde Park High School, thereby freeing up BLA's build- ing at 205 Townsend Street for the Boston Arts Academy. While on its face this may sound like "opportunity," it surely is not. Hyde Park High School cannot accommodate the current enrollment of 1,750 BLA students, nor can it offer students the amenities they currently enjoy, such as the outdoor class- room and easy access to cultural centers and athletic facilities. Students from East Boston, the North End, South Boston, Charlestown and Brighton will face com- mutes of up to 90 minutes to Hyde Park which will result in Latin Academy becom- ing an under selected school, thus under- mining our 130-year history of excellence and our status as one of, if not THE most, diverse school in the nation. YOUR OPIN- ION COUNTS. We need to hear from you and your Latin Academy student(s). Join us for an important parent/teacher/alumni orga- ~&t , ..~j .., ,- nizational meeting on Tuesday, August 23"d at 2:00 pm in the Area E-5 police station community room, conveniently located at 1708 Centre Street in West Roxbury, across the street from the Holy Name Church rotary. For more information, please email 205townsend@gma|l.eom or call 617-935-6659. Boston Latin Academy has been relocated six times since its opening as Girls Latin School in 1978, Twenty years a~o, the city promised a "permanent home" on Townsend Street; the city must be held to its word. BLA has strong ties to the Townsend Street com- munity; parents, teachers, students, and alumni have invested hundreds of thou- sands of dollars in improvements such as an updated language Aab, new curtains, sound for the theater and technology for the ,library and classrooms. Boston Latin Acad- emy is here to stay, and with your help we CAN make this happen.
