Psychologist wanted as a guest on WILD TIME

We have just posted the news about an open cat hate group who call themselves "Fans of the Miami serial cat killer" when we heard about another disturbing case of animal cruelty, see HERE

WILD TIME is looking for a psychologist to come on air who can help us understand what triggers mindless violence.

Please contact us!!!

"FANS of a serial cat killer" group formed on Facebook

Shortly after the arrest of 18 years-old Tyler Weinman for a string of cat mutilations a group of cat haters have formed a group called "Fans of the Miami Serial Cat Killer".

We find this incident and the following portrayal of open cat hatred very disturbing. Thomas Janak sent an email to Barry Sharon who formed the hate group and asked him to explain his actions to him and his listeners.

We'll see if and what he answers.

Cat "Petra" is looking for a new home



Petra is an adorable 7-8 months old black female cat who is looking for
a loving home. Petra is very affectionate, playful, healthy and litter
trained. She is good with other cats but would also be happy as an only
cat as she loves human company.

Vera Resch, who was a guest on WILD TIME in October 2008, is rehoming the cat and can be contacted on: 087 - 132 51 55

Update

Thomas Janak pre-recorded the WILD TIME show for June 19th today. His phone interviewee was Kiara,an Italian woman who created the ANIMAL VOICE blog, that has come to be well known in animal welfare circles.

Kiara left Thomas a message on his facebook wall:

"well, i'm glad we did this - and for sure i've learnt something today: i have to improve my spoken english!! which is good to know, cause now i'm aware of where i need to work the most... and of course am curious to hear the whole conversation! :o)

Thanks so much Thomas for giving a chance to Animal Voice to reach more people!

:: Unite as One, We'll Never Give Up - Till All Are Free, Till All Are Loved ::"

Thanks to Kiara for being on WILD TIME and for creating an amazing blog!!
