Found: Almost all black male cat near Fireside Inn in Idyllwild. Blue collar. Please call ARF at (951) 659-1122 to identify. Abandoned on the ARF front porch in a cardboard box, alone and afraid, was a beautiful female Maine coon tabby mix we are calling Sweet Pea. A soft mixture of gray, black and white, she will be available soon for adoption. A reminder: It is against the law to abandon your animals. Without a medical record, we have no record of prior vaccinations and rabies shots, which could result in over inoculation.

Off the Cuff – One More Time: The ups and downs...

You don’t get to be 82 years old without learning, often the hard way, that life is full of ups and downs. It could be as early as kindergarten when someone you really liked didn’t give you a Valentine’s Day card, or in high school when you realized that tomorrw was the beginning of summer vacation.
