After reading all the replies to the Cover Price topic of the “Tradition” Web Log, and becoming aware of how many of our readers are animal rescuers, we decided to create a page with photos of some of the animals we have rescued so far, since we all seem to have this common interest in our lives – besides astrology, of course.

Here are some of the cats Luís and I have helped to re-home:

Due to our lifestyle and personal inclination, we became ‘specialised’ in cats, but we love all animals (reptiles included) and we will welcome any photos of animals you care to send us, as long as they were rescued by you personally.

(Aug 2009) Here is a new rescue which originated an interesting horary chart. You can read about it in our blog.
