Host Charity Nebbe speaks with Peter Trachtenberg, who is teaching this summer at the University of Iowa, about his latest book, Another Insane Devotion: On the Love of Cats and Persons. It explores the fierce and tender bonds of love between people and cats. Also, we get an update on this summer’s kitten explosion in Iowa, from the directors of two Iowa animal shelters.
When you adopt a puppy or a kitten, a dog or a cat, from an animal shelter the goals are not only to find a good home for that pet but to make sure that pet is a good fit for you and that the home is forever. Charity Nebbe talks with representatives of the Animal Rescue League in Des Moines who co-authored two new books to help families with the adoption process and to help owners solve issues that may provoke them to turn in their pets to a shelter.
