Robert De Niro is a ruthless gangster; John Cusack is experiencing motel hell; a hot hooker with a heart of gold is on the run; a satchel bag with mysterious contents. Haven’t we seen all this before? The Bag Man desperately borrows from dozens of other dark and gritty crime-thriller films, but, unfortunately, it is more ‘bore’ than noir.
Over the weekend Ironwood Library in Ahwatukee celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by inviting the community out to enjoy a morning filled with entertainment.
Kora was found in an abandoned house with several other cats. She is a somewhat shy, but quickly warms up after she gets to know you. She is an extremely sweet and calm cat who basically gets along with everyone. She recently lost her “sister” to an illness and could really use some extra love and support. She enjoys sleeping in a cubby within a cat tree and will always come out to greet other cats and people. She is very loving and needs that special person to give the patience and attention she desperately needs. Can you give Kora a chance at a new life?
Charlie is a beautiful, affectionate, energetic 2-year-old kitty. When she’s not directing her energy towards talking to you, snuggling with you, or trying to score a meal from you, she’ll focus her energy on a vigorous playtime! Charlie loves playtime and in particular loves wand toys of all types, be it feather wands, swizzle wands, or some other type of wand.
Declawed Chloe is an independent spirit, a lap kitty when she chooses to be and prefers to observe the goings on from her reserved standpoint.

Adopting a pet is a great thing to do! Giving a dog or cat (puppy or kitten) a second chance can be a wonderfully rewarding experience. Unfortunately sometimes it can be quite frustrating when things don’t go as expected. Here are five things to consider before adopting a pet:
Mesa will receive free sterilization for homeless cats living in two zip codes — 85201 and 85204. The Spay Neuter Hotline will be scheduling appointments, giving out humane traps and aiding in the process. The money for the program comes from a grant given out by PetSmart Charities.
Junipurr is a young adult short-haired black and white kitty with wonderful markings. She purrs and purrs and purrs. She’s not a kitten so isn’t too crazy with energy, but she does like to be silly and play. She’s been defined as “sweet” and enjoys spending her days showing her people how much they are appreciated. Junipurr would do best in a home with another cat that is quiet ... and she seems to enjoy the company of male cats. Junipurr has been tested FELV/FIV negative, altered, microchipped, current on vaccinations and housetrained.
LOS ANGELES — If a scared dog bolts from home, it's likely to run as fast and far as it can. But if a house cat panics, it's more likely to slink away and stop at the first good hiding place it finds.

WASHINGTON — Using videos that claim to teach toddlers, or flash cards for tots, may not be the best idea. Simply talking to babies is key to building crucial language and vocabulary skills — but sooner is better, and long sentences are good.
In one year of working together to encourage the community to fix, adopt and save homeless pets, seven animal welfare organizations in Maricopa County say they’ve seen positive results.

Are you looking for a true lap cat? What about an affectionate, eager-to-please cat who is a big-time snuggler and is good with cats and most dogs? Meet Henry, the embodiment of all of those qualities. He is a mature cat who has lived more than seven cat years, but you wouldn’t know it. He is looking for a family who will let him enjoy relaxing around the house while getting a nice belly rub. He may not play with cat toys often, but will always enjoy human companionship and a nice perch by a window to watch the world outside. Can you give Henry a second chance at a new life?
Ashley is a sweet kitty who will steal your heart. She’s a gray Dilute Tortie and is quite fine with being an only kitty, or sharing your affections with another laid-back cat. She is very smart and with a little encouragement hops in and out of her carrier with ease, thus she may be an excellent travel kitty. Ashley enjoys brushing, scratching posts and running a sprint through the house looking like a wild, demented muskrat.
“The Cat in the Hat” is on stage at Tempe Center for the Arts.
Lennox is a great looking boy. He was adopted in 2013, but recently returned because in his adoptive home he exhibited separation anxiety. His separation anxiety though since his return has seemingly been solved with a simple dose of daily medication. Lennox has been living in a foster home and doing wonderful. There he has two dog friends and a cat friend to keep him company. He enjoys walks, playing with other dogs, toys and during his down time a cuddle on the couch is just what he needs. He knows basic commands and is a quick learner. He is very eager to please his humans. Lennox would do best in a home with other dogs and one where a family isn’t gone for long extended amounts of time. Lennox is neutered, microchipped, and current on vaccinations.
