Flights for Felines to Build a Kitten Nursery


Jenny Tiner and Steve Dale

Windy Kitty Cat Cafe founder and owner Jenny Tiner makes a very special announcement HERE on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio.

It’s pretty cool, 254 cats and kittens adopted via Windy Kitty and counting in 2019. Most of the cats and kittens are from Chicago Animal Care and Control. Not only is every adoption through Windy Kitty a life saved but also more space created to save more at Chicago Animal Care and Control. Jenny works in conjunction with Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control.

We chat about the Windy Kitty Cat Cafe and what any cat cafe is all about. And also special people and special groups who regularly visit Windy Kitty to help themselves, their parents or their children.

Flights for Felines, January 24 will benefit the Chicago Cat Chicks Kitten Rescue Project at Chicago Party Animals Pillar Loft, 910 W. Jackson a7 7 p.m. The evening will feature flights of wine, beer & whiskey, food, a kitten kissing booth (for humans – not cats), celebrity guests, gift bags, jazz and more. Proceeds go toward opening of Chicago’s first and only Kitten Nursery, Tickets HERE for Flights for Felines.

Getting kitties out of a shelter environment sooner than later – even the best shelter environment, reduces their stress. Stress reduction equates with less disease; there is a correlation. A proper kitten nursery and a plan for those kittens means lives saved. And that is exactly what Tiner wants to do – to save more lives via the Kitten Rescue Project. And we chat about how she will even provide support for cats trapped in domestic violence, and how to get them out.

On Michael Vick: Then Stop Watching Football

One time dog fighter Michael Vick has been named an honorary captain to the National Football League Pro Bowl, and I think that is totally wrong.  Why Vick? Why place Vick on a pedestal? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says that Vick apologized when he toured with Humane Society of the University States then CEO Wayne Pacelle. For the first time, on Monday, December 30 at 5:30 p.m. CDT on WGN Radio, Pacelle and I will discuss the issue. Listen at 720AM or online here.
