For those who don’t know: JBBS focuses on history and love of cats, especially, the JBT. Please invite even your pet people to join... they would enjoy seeing their baby in the newsletter under "Bobtail Antics" or stories about the silly things they do. We also have a stack of old newsletter, a couple from the 90s that are available for purchase. 

If you have recently placed a JBT help them to learn about the life, lore and love of the JBT through the Society. This issue features ten JBTS who made their mark in CFA. We would love to have the same information for TICA. Any offers?
