This beauty’s name is Lafawnda. She’s a Snowshoe cat, about 12 years old. She was returned several months ago due to no fault of her own. This is actually the second time she was returned. The first time she was in her home for nine years, but her owner became ill and could no longer care for her. The second time she was returned because her family was moving and couldn’t take her with them.

Denise Rowland gets the facts wrong (“Tennessee Walking Horse Industry Follows Regulations” May 30) about our organization and the widespread nature of the cruel practice of horse “soring.” But consider the source: Ms. Rowland herself has violated the federal Horse Protection Act; two USDA veterinarians disqualified her horse from showing because of evidence he had been sored. She is an apologist for the industry, which has had four decades to eradicate soring and has failed miserably. Meanwhile, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, all 50 state Veterinary Medical Associations, the American Association of Equine Practitioners and many other industry organizations support the PAST Act and staunchly oppose the bogus Blackburn/Alexander legislation.
After reading a previous letter written to you by Michelle Lukasiewicz, I feel compelled to correct her gross misconception of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breed and her rainbows and roses description of the PAST Act.

Roxy is a furry, purry bundle of love with one spot of gray fur on the top of her head. Nothing makes this sweet girl happier than being with her people.

It would be interesting to see just how long she’d be content to stay put in your arms or lap.
