GREEN THINGS (continued):

• If a company is guilty of green-washing, they are misleading consumers by proclaiming that they implement positive environmental practices that don’t exist or can’t be substantiated. The company might falsely claim that they use recycled content in their product, or advertise one small truth to distract consumers from a larger falsehood. • The word green has found its way into many terms in the English language. If you’re a greenhorn, you’re an inexperienced beginner. When the green-eyed monster rears its ugly head, it represents jealousy; similarly, an individual can be green with envy. Those who have the ability to make anything grow are said to have a green thumb. If you have a roll of greenbacks, your pocket is full of U.S. currency. Not feeling well? You might be described as green around the gills. • Members of the Green Party focus on the environment, equal opportunity, social justice and non-violence. It is their platform that, “every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives.” The party does not accept corporate donations, shunning corporations’ influence and control over government and the media. Probably the most famous Green Party member is Ralph Nader. • The blue-green color of teal was named for the Common Teal, also known as the Eurasian 1.

Folklore states that Muhammad was especially fond of the color and wore a green cloak and turban. According to the Koran, inhabitants of Paradise will dress in fine garments of green silk. Several Islamic nations incorporate the color into their flags; in fact, the flag of Libya is simply a green field, with no other colors, designs or details.

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta Big Cats This week Paws Corner is going to go big -- really big -- and talk a bit about cats that are a little too large to keep as house pets: namely, cats like pumas, wildcats, cougars, tigers, leopards, you name it. Too often, they’re purchased as pets or as show animals only to be neglected or worse when things don’t go so well for their owners. That’s why I’m calling attention to a standout organization, Big Cat Rescue. This Florida-based organization made it a mission almost 20 years ago to rescue big cats and care for them. The story of how it began is pretty incredible -- founders Carole and Don Baskin, after visiting a bobcat breeder and finding out that most of his lynxes and bobcats were sold for their fur, purchased all 56 of the breeder’s cats and took them from Minnesota to Florida rather than leave them to be slaughtered. Their transition from casual pet owners who thought it would be cool to own a bobcat to committed advocates for stopping exploitation of big cats is a tale in itself.

If you’re interested in big cats for any reason, visit their website at www.bigcatrescue.org. The site is chock full of information about these cats, why they don’t make good pets and ways that you can help the sanctuary continue its work. P.S. If you’re a frequent visitor to www. pawscorner.com, you probably know that Purina is looking for a “Cat Chow correspondent” to travel the country on behalf of Purina, attend cat events and connect with fellow cat owners. Applications will be accepted through March 28 at catchow.com. Send your pet questions and tips to ask@pawscorner.com, or write to Paw’s Corner, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.
