Excerpt: "One day my daughter called me in a panic: 'Mama! I saw this Pitty girl at a shelter in Boston... She needs a forever home. She needs YOU.' I only knew what I heard about Pit Bulls (nothing good), but eight-month-old Fergie, who was born to be a "bait" dog, stole my heart. At the same time an unfortunate cat/kitten situation also needed my attention. Was it possible for me to foster a mother cat with her six-week-old kitten in the home of a Pit Bull? To my surprise, Fergie acted like she was their mother, sleeping and cuddling with the cats. What do I now know about Pitties? Devoted, lovable, and intelligent - I'd get another in a heartbeat." -Gail Reed
