Now is the best time to adopt a cat or kitten.

Now is the best time to adopt a cat or kitten.

The largest no-kill cat rescue in Middle Georgia has suffered more than its share of bad luck recently, and they're hoping for some help from the community to give at least 50 cats and kittens a loving, permanent home.

Only a few of the animals pulled into rescue by MPNP already have their shots or are spayed or neutered, and forget flea prevention – owners callous enough to dump their pets to die at the pound aren't likely to care about fleas, heartworms or rabies. Like every other rescue, MPNP pays for complete vetting of the animals themselves, using money donated to the rescue, funds collected for adoption fees and, sometimes, money from their own pockets.

'Agitated' Alligator Apprehended at East Bibb Home

An "agitated" and "chunky" 12-foot alligator has made itself at home under the porch of an east Bibb County house.

According to a news release, the gator crawled out of a nearby swamp and to its temporary refuge off Riggins Mill Road at 5566 Kiernan Drive. 

That was Tuesday morning, but the scaly beast first showed up last night in a "non-residential area" off Joe Tamplin Industrial Blvd, not far from the Macon Downtown Airport.

But it wasn't threatening anyone so Dept. of Natural Resources told Bibb deputies to have Southeast Reptile Rescue, out of Griffin, tend to the problem.

Deputies found themselves "on alert" overnight because the gator slipped back into the swamp before trappers could arrive.

The gator resurfaced in Hosie Mackey's yard, Tuesday morning. 

Mackey says he was enjoying a quiet morning at home when his neighbor called to say he saw danger lurking.
