Photo of Mocha, sweet orange cat“Conversations with Mocha” is a series of videos sponsored by New York State Humane Association and hosted by Pat Valusek, president of NYSHA. Mocha and Pat are speaking with various people in the community who are involved with the protection and care of animals. (Granted that Mocha makes limited contribution to the discussions and, in fact, frequently has to be removed from the taping, she is definitely part of the hosting partnership.)
