It is estimated that domestic cats in the United States- both the pets that spend part of the day outdoors and the strays and ferals that never leave it- kill a median of 2.4bil birds and 12.3bil mammals a year.
For all the adorable images of cats that play the piano, flush the toilet, mew melodiously and find their way back home over hundreds of miles, scientists have identified a shocking new truth: cats are far deadlier than anyone realized.
Rich Egger’s guest on Emphasis is Kim Orth, Executive Director of the Nauvoo Tourism Office. They talk about the traveling Smithsonian exhibit Journey Stories and the accompanying local version of the exhibit.
The local exhibit can be seen in the Nauvoo Tourism Office, 1295 Mullholland Street. The national traveling exhibit is housed next door.
Orth said the local exhibit focuses on four groups that played key roles in Nauvoo’s history: Mormons, Catholics, Germans, and Icarians.
