Animal lovers gathered at the Canad Inns over the weekend for the annual Manitoba Animal Welfare Conference focusing on cats and dogs 101.

All day Friday participants got to listen to Kit Jenkins from PetSmart Charities in Phoenix, Arizona speak about cat types and personalities as well as address the issue of homeless cats in the community. Saturday participants got to listen to Brad Pattison speak about dogs and their behaviour.

Jenkins was a very engaging speaker injecting a lot of humour into her presentation with her Southern drawl. Her discussion of the homeless cat problem was very frank and full of useful information for participants who came from all across Manitoba.
