Kris Papiernik and Kia Griffin are a big-hearted couple who have helped cats in the Philadelphia region for over a decade. The engaged pair started by fostering kittens from local shelters, but over the past few years have started taking care of feral and stray cats in the city. Going by the name Kolony Kats, Papiernik says the couple currently feeds and cares for over 40 cats spread across four different locations a day. “We feed them twice a day, no matter the weather, no days off,” Griffin says.
Daisy the Border Collie/Golden Retriever mix just has one of those faces, you know? The kind of gentle pupper you wanna give a million hugs and kisses. Of course, Daisy’s sunny disposition doesn’t just resonate with humans. Case in point: During a recent excursion to Empire Mine State Historic Park in Grass Valley, California, with her person Jacqueline Goehner, Daisy made a new friend who couldn’t get enough of her. That friend being a very tiny, and very adventurous, lizard.
Cats can be tough, independent and, yes, sometimes jerks, but as any feline parent can attest, that’s what makes them so darn lovable. In fact, it’s exactly how Don and Mary West of Charlotte, North Carolina described their beloved feline Babou when she went missing from their apartment in June. Once the Wests realized Babou was missing (she somehow slipped out of their door), they made fliers as part of their search efforts and posted them around their neighborhood to help bring Babou home.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
