Libby is a petite black and white cat about one and a half years old. She is small but has a big “purrsonality.” She loves to stand on her hind legs and welcome her people home. When her foster mom comes downstairs to play with her, she stands up and swipes her paw from the top of her head then out to her mom . . . almost like she’s saluting.

Last week, the Governor presented his State of the State address. This annual tradition, much like the President’s State of Union address, is an opportunity for the Governor to set forth his priorities for the upcoming state legislative session. The State of the State address is usually in the beginning of January but this year it was appropriately delayed due to the passing of the Governor’s father. If you didn’t hear much about the State of the State, it is because the day after the State of the State address long-term State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver was arrested for public corruption.

giraffes search for a snack

I, like many people, enjoy seeing animals in their natural habitat and have done so in many places. John and I went on safari in Kenya where we saw thousands of wildebeests and zebras migrating.

When I tell people that we have spent a lot of time over the years in the rainforest I always add that we have more wildlife in our backyard than we ever saw in the jungle. The best place to really see and observe animals is in a zoo.
