Feral cats find shelter thanks to Gloversville woman

Feral cats find shelter thanks to Gloversville woman | The Daily Gazette
GLOVERSVILLE – Many stray and feral cats have found homes in cat shelters dotted throughout the greater Capital Region thanks in part to Angel Mariani. 
The Gloversville resident has made several hundred of the shelters over the years, using blankets and bins filled with straw. She often gives them to people who reach out to her on Facebook.
“They are life-saving. [For] cats out there that don’t have a warm home, it is a very rough winter,” Mariani said.
Mariani has had a passion for animals since she was a child and remembers her father bringing home stray cats when she was growing up. While the work that she does with the cat shelters is independent, she volunteers with animal organizations like Kitten Angels and runs a Facebook group called Kitty Connection dedicated to educating people about cats and how to care for them. She also runs fundraisers on the social media platform for those who can’t afford to pay for their cat’s medical bills, or for injured feral cats she comes across that need medical attention.

Swinging into Line Dancing

A group of 11 women lined up, then vined right and left, jazz boxed and shuffled Monday morning.
Those were just some of the terms for moves they were expected to learn as part of a new beginner line dancing class, organized by the Union Parks and Recreation Department. The six-week class is designed to give participants a new option for exercise, while social distancing.
“I love dancing, and I hope they’ll enjoy it as much as I do,” said volunteer instructor Lynda Merrill.
The class is free but participants are asked to bring donations to the Union Food Pantry. Between donations made Monday and those from the earlier classes, a table in the parks department offices was taken over by nonperishable food.
