APSU Paws to Care program to care for feral Cats

 

pawstocareClarksville, TN – The campus of Austin Peay State University is home to more than 15 feral cats and kittens, and members of the university community are doing their part to both care for and provide a home for APSU’s feline family.

Rather than removing or adopting out these feral cats, the mission of Paws to Care is to provide a stable cat colony on campus.

By providing spaying and neutering services, as well as treating them for rabies and other illnesses, the territorial-minded cats help prevent the community from growing out of control.

Clarksville Beginnings – Part 3: What Kind of Man Was Valentine Sevier?

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Our lives here in Middle Tennessee are built upon the foundation of those who lived before us. The names of these souls of long ago are sprinkled upon our consciousness as they are now reflected in the names of our counties, cities, and roads: John Montgomery, George Rogers Clark, James Robertson, etc.

They are people who lived the prime of their lives in the late 18th century on the cusp of a new nation, bordering a frontier with a plethora of possibilities. These men are revered and their lives have been boiled down to a thick consistency of stories that all reflect their heroism, bravery, and sometimes larger than life achievements.

There is a definite vibe that they are only to be portrayed as one dimensional hero type characters. Along with that I get the feeling that to declare anything else is pretty much blasphemy.
