Quote of the Day

It is a warm and furry substitute."Michael Markarian, the Humane Society's chief operating officer in Washington, D.C., on their Coats for Cubs program, which recycles fur coats to use as "nests, bedding, or cuddly replacements for mom and dad" for orphaned, injured, or sick wildlife.
