This week, the NCSPCA would like remind you to save the date for the upcoming Birds of Prey presentation by Mark Manske of Adirondack Raptors, and Wendy Hall, of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge & Rehabilitation Center. The event, rescheduled from earlier this year due to weather conditions, will take place at the Whallonsburg Grange on Friday, April 15 at 7 p.m. Suggested minimum donations are $5 per adult; children under the age of 12 are free. All proceeds will benefit the NCSPCA. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to meet some of these extraordinary creatures and learn up close about the lives and behaviors of birds of prey. Mark has been banding raptors for the past 25 years; he is also a public school educator, a falconer, a New York state licensed nuisance wildlife control officer, an adjunct professor at Paul Smith's College, and a retired wildlife rehabilitator.
This week's featured pet is Colt, a handsome, grey-blue domestic shorthair/mix cat with a glossy coat you will not be able to resist petting. Colt adores attention of any kind. One of his favorite hobbies is playing on the computer. Given the opportunity, he will quickly become your personal assistant, typing up a storm with his soft paws! If you are looking for a feline companion with looks, personality, and a love for technology, look no further. Colt is the perfect cat for you!
