Readers’ Corner: Feb. 3, 2010

Hoe-down tonight:

Fiddle-player Rosemary Freeland wants to remind folks that Country Comfort will play at Five Mile House from 6 to 9 p.m. today. That’s the road house 5 miles north of Nevada City on Highway 20.

The five-piece Country Comfort offers classic, danceable country, so wear your Stets and your boots. (Outlaws, check your arms at the door.)

Animal friends in need:

For the residents who continue to think they don’t need to spay and neuter their pets, – and to the kind-hearted souls who understand – please consider these pleas from our local animal welfare folks.

Karen Pfanenstiel at the Nevada County Animal Shelter writes:

“We only have about one day’s supply of wet cat food left at NCAS. The county only provides dry food.

Some cats are elderly, missing teeth and can’t eat the rather large kibble that is provided.

“A little scoop of wet food is the highlight of their day. Please, if you can help, bring canned cat food to the shelter.

The county shelter is at 14647 McCourtney Road, just east of Grass Valley. It’s open 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, except holidays.

The folks at AnimalSave wrote this:

“It’s kitten season again in our Cat Adoption Room. Adopt a beautiful kitten or adult cat today. The adoption room is open 12 to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday at 520 E. Main St. in Grass Valley.”

Puppies also are available. View them at

And … the folks at Pound Puppy Rescue sent this:

“Many litters of puppies awaiting rescue are in danger of being given away unaltered – or worse – if there are no foster homes. If you can help, contact Kathleen O’Sullivan at PoundPuppyRescue@comcast. net; (530) 274-8079; or, (530)271-7071 ext. 204. Food and supplies provided.”
