Today, she's the editor-in-chief of AdoptAShelter.com, a shop-to-donate website that benefits animal charities. In 1986, a chance event changed her forever and set her life on a new course. A family moved from their apartment, abandoning their pregnant tabby cat in the snow. Accidental midwife, Dusty received a real life lesson in the plight of unwanted pets. After she found homes for Mom and her kittens, Dusty jumped head-first into cat and kitten rescue. Over the years, she has successfully bottle fed over 800 orphan kittens, and rescued and rehomed more than 700 adults and weaned kittens. She's an associate certified cat behavior consultant and member of International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.   @Dusty_Rainbolt
It has been a news story impossible to miss for months and months. It’s called Brexit, a clever term combining “Britain” and “Exit.”  That may be all you know about it, or you may be a step ahead and know that Brexit is a fight for Britain to leave the European Union. The Brexit saga is filled with controversy and infighting that can be difficult to understand for the typical person living in London, let alone over here in the States. This week we are diving in to “Brexit For Dummies” by Nicholas Wallwork. Nicholas is an international real estate expert, in fact, he wrote a “For Dummies” book on that topic too. We’re going to lean on him to help us get a better grasp on Brexit, and why it’s so important to get right.
