Save the trees
Fifteen people attended the tour of threatened sycamore trees on Nov. 15 at the Tower Bridge Gateway.
John Lichter, the arborist whose company performed the first arborist report on the sycamores admits that the trees were misidentified in the first report. A new arborist report done by the same company will be available after Nov. 25.

November is “Adopt a Senior Pet” month. In cat adoptions, at the Yolo County Animal Shelter there are several sweet seniors waiting for you.
Princess (10 yr. old tri tabby with white) and Buddy (8 yrs handsome tuxedo boy) came to the shelter when their owner died.  Their lives have been turned upside down and they only want what they had before – a loving home with a sunny spot just their own.  They do not have to be adopted together.
Pumpkin (calico mix) and Annie (tortie) both 5 years old, really love holding and petting.  Adopt one of these beautiful girls and they will reward you with loyalty and love for many years.
And last, but by no means least, are four of the most handsome, most affectionate boys you will ever meet. Offer Blue (6 yrs blue point Himalayan) your hand and he will not stop rubbing and rolling over. He lives for attention. Daniel (5yrs,male tabby)  and Six Toes (6yrs,tabby poly dactyl) are big boys who love a lap. While they do enjoy batting around the occasional ping pong ball, they are most focused on the comfy life – sitting on laps, treats, petting and a soft bed. Gary (orange tabby) is only 2 yrs old but he too appreciates a quiet lap with lots of attention.
Read more of the story of each of these fabulous felines on Petfinder.com or visit them at the Yolo County Animal Shelter, 2640 E. Gibson Rd, Woodland (916 375 6492)  All senior cats are $5.00 to adopt.
