Kelley, Thanks for reminding us about PETA. I used to give them donations, but when I found out what they did to cats I never gave them another cent, and I've tried to spread the word about all the cats they kill. I suppose they do some good in other areas, but cats certainly get the worst treatment imaginable, and I also agree they are nutty as fruit cakes when it comes to flies...... I read about the humane fly trap they sent Pres. Obama....... How can they consider the lives of flies more valuable than the lives of cats!!
