There is no need for animals to suffer for the sake of human consumption
Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. Many of us bought our beloved “pets” at pet shops, had guinea pigs, and kept beautiful birds in cages. We wore wool and silk, ate McDonald’s burgers, and fished. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?

At Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats, we take special care in socializing feral kittens and graduating Ivy League lap cats into life long loving homes. We are also committed to providing grown ferals their GED diplomas by providing spay/neuter services in the form of Trap Neuter Release (TNR) within Los Angeles city limits. Our mishttp://www.pioneerpet.comsion is to provide all cats able to adjust to indoor life with a warm and loving lifelong home, while providing those cats who need to continue living outdoors with a caring colony manager, assuring all cats, lap or otherwise, a humane and happy existence. The cat overpopulation is not a cat problem, it is a people problem caused by uneducated and sometimes irresponsible pet owners who abandon their cats or do not have them sterilized, causing a proliferation of cats being born on the street. Together we can bring an end to the homeless kitten epidemic. You can do your part by adopting, volunteering or donating to our organization today.

Animals were the first, and have remained the biggest, love of Patty Gibbon’s life. In addition to being an Animal Communicator, Patty is also a Licensed Veterinary Technician and a Certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist II. This background has proven very beneficial, especially when performing body scans to gain insight regarding an animal’s health. Patty grew up on Long Island, NY. There, while still in elementary school, she started tending to animals through pet-sitting jobs, and later went on to rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned animals such as wild rabbits, raccoons, fox, and ducklings, as well as cats and dogs. There were also the ‘regular’ animal family members at home (dogs, cats, fish, birds and assorted rodents), which at one point topped over 20 animals. Though not fully aware that there were any psychic communications occurring, Patty often “just seemed to know” what animals needed, and often had the “aggressive” dog or the “unsociable” cat approach to greet her. Patty attended the State University of New York at Farmingdale, where she majored in Veterinary Technology. After graduating, Patty passed the state-licensing exam at Cornell University and became a Licensed Veterinary Technician.
