(NORTH SALEM, N.Y.) --The SPCA of Westchester is seeking the help of the public in identifying a woman who abandoned a white male Persian cat at Northwind Kennels in Bedford.

The surveillance tapes from the parking lot show a woman pulling into a parking space on the afternoon of Monday, March 27. The white Persian was in a carrier she took from her car. The cat, in the carrier, was found a short time later, left behind in the parking lot.

The cat had been severely neglected—the hair so thickly matted all over his body, it interfered with his mobility as well as his bodily functions. After being shaved by the veterinary team, the fur that came off of the cat weighed two pounds.

The SPCA of Westchester’s Humane Law Enforcement (HLE) Unit was notified about the abandoned cat, and the appalling condition in which he was found. “We would like to question the woman shown on the video and need the public’s help in identifying her,” said Ernest Lungaro, Director of the SPCA’s HLE Unit. “Individuals with information can call our confidential hotline at 914-941-7797.”

Winter Is Fleeting

By some alchemy, winter is flying by us this year. Faster and faster every year of our lives. We’re nearly two-thirds done with the season already. There’s just a month and a few extra days left to withstand. A snap of the fingers and it will be gone. Finished. Another winter to enter into our personal annals, in which we thrived or merely survived.    

Soon ...

I Love 'I Hate Halet'

Let’s face it, folks. Not everyone loves Shakespeare. Not even all actors. Andrew Rally is one of them. In fact, where there’s a Will, there’s a way Andrew will find to avoid acting in one of those famously timeless plays. And for good reason. Shakespeare tests, to the fullest, an actor’s mettle, and Andrew is strictly a TV actor.

He has just ended a star turn in the ...

A Trip to the 'Liberry'

Raise your hand if you didn’t—did not—call the library the “liberry” when you were little. I’m guessing not a lot of hands just went up.

Didn’t just about all of us say “liberry” when we were learning to read? (Well, whaddya expect when a place is named something way too easy for little kids to mispronounce?)

OK. Now, raise your hand if ...

I Am Woman, Hair Me Roar

When you have short hair, it is inevitable that you will spend an inordinate amount of time growing your hair out and then getting fed up and cutting it again. I have been down this hair-brained road several dozen times before, complaining for months until I am convinced my husband is going to cut it all off while I sleep just so he doesn’t have to listen to me whine about it one more ...

I'm Mrs. Heat Miser

To be perfectly honest, I did not need a large rodent with insomnia to convince me that we had six more weeks of winter. It’s been so cold outside lately that when I go out, my nostrils stick together. The dog is so hesitant to go out that he does his business right on the deck, less than five feet from the door, and then gives me a look of contemptuous indignation when he comes back in the ...

'Customers Deserve Explanation' of Ballooning Rates

February 22, 2018

The following is a letter sent from Hudson Valley lawmakers to Carl Taylor, president of NYSEG:

Our offices have been inundated with frustrated constituents who have recently received their electric bills for the month of January. Some claim their bills have quadrupled compared to the previous month. A recent review of your website shows no issuance of a press release to customers warning of ...
