In early May, the SPCA of Texas’ Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit seized 20 animals from a home in Southeast Dallas. Becker was one of the animals rescued that day. From day 1 she proved to us how strong-willed, kind, and independent she is. She had a rough start in life but she doesn’t let that define her; that’s one of the many things that we adore about. Becker. The kitten is eager to begin the next chapter of her life and if you want that to be with you, then we encourage you to visit her at our Jan Rees-Jones Animal Care Center in Dallas. She can come home with her new family today! Your donations helped to make her story possible, so if you’ve ever wondered if your support is helping we want you to know that it is. Without your support, Becker, wouldn’t be with us today so thank you! #TransformationTuesday

The original story can be found at bit.ly/2wqjHdX

Why would anyone representing the University of Texas, want to be on a show with a person who repeatedly disrespects our President of the United States, with vulgar, nasty, and immoral verbal insults???

Love it! Got two for the price of one, a Northwestern grad and a Texas prof! Go ‘cats and hook em!

This is so embarassing for the University of Texas. It demonstrates how devolved the university has become by its Berkeley President.

I love her!! She’s come to our school and puts on an amazing, educational show.

An entire semester on that much speed would be exhausting

Brenton Galley this was my chemistry teacher!

We saw her at Alumni College. She is awesome and inspiring to her students! Wish I had had her as a professor!

I’ve seen her at the Longhorn Halloween event & she’s great! She has a lot of energy, but safety is her #1 priority.

Channeling her inner child! Hook 'em Horns, Kate! Love your enthusiasm. Can see you passion. 🤘

Oh, if this was the enthusiasm my professors showed during my time at UT.... She's fabulous!

I would have loved chemistry if she'd been my professor during my UT days!

Jonathan I have lost all respect for Colbert also but this lady is a fantastic prof.

She was my chem Professors! She was aight lol. She was definitely more explosive than her chem demos

She was awesome!!

Soi this is what you post after that dangerous event in Helsinki? What happened to the University - especially when there is another clip that Stephen Colbert has posted that reveals the admission of Putin that he did, he did. This University should hide its head in shame. Exposure of treason is not political unless you agree that treason is not to be outed in fear of being called political.

I wish she had been my UT chemistry professor 🤓

Terrific! Where were these Professors when I was in college? 🙂

She cheated - he was already a dragon.

I couldn’t sit through a whole semester of her awkward, overbearing personality...

My chem prof at UT didn't nearly have this much personality. But how would I know, there were 400 other students in my class.

♥️🤘🏾🔥💥❗️

Stuart Ray elephant toothpaste FTW! I will forever remember this experiment lol.

Making Science fun. Where was she when I was in school?

Lori Kelley she came to village I got to see her do that in person!

Hanna Yi wow my chem professor, I miss chem.
