Baltimore's animal advocates cheered this week to learn that a sweet cat that was horribly burned this year, then became a symbol for change, has been named the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animal's Cat of the Year. The ASPCA bestowed the honor on Mittens, a tabby with a white ruff who even after being set on fire in January, wouldn't abandon the kittens she wasnursing. Two teens are charged with trapping the nursing mother cat, pouring lighter fluid over her and then lighting a match.

I caught part of a radio call-in show the other day on which a vet was fielding questions about Addison's disease among basset hounds and a cocker spaniel's hypothyroid problem and what can be done about a bulldog who snores (he needs to lose weight), and it was interesting to discover the excellent medical care that dogs have come to expect these days. The vet was herself a dog parent, as she put it, and there was genuine feeling in her voice when she discussed the bassets' hormonal problems, something I haven't heard in the debate over health care for humans this summer.

Scientists have found Chinese mitten crabs mating and producing eggs in the Chesapeake and Delaware bays - evidence that the alien species is likely breeding and established on the East Coast. Two hairy-clawed invaders were caught recently by watermen, one south of Kent Island and one in the upper Delaware Bay, raising to 10 the number confirmed in the region over the past three years. More significantly, the two were the first females found on the East Coast. Both showed evidence of recent mating, and the Delaware crab was carrying eggs, said Greg Ruiz, senior scientist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater.

The discovery of four Chinese mitten crabs in the Delaware Bay prompted scientists to broadcast an alert to the entire East Coast yesterday amid the increasing likelihood that the native Asian crustacean is reproducing in the region. "To me, this suggests that they are more likely to be reproducing here and in the system here than continuing to be delivered fresh," said Greg Ruiz, the senior scientist at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater, Md. "It's not likely that we would see a continuing supply of mitten crab larvae from overseas, so that we would continue to catch these mitten crabs in the Delaware and Chesapeake bays."

A hairy-clawed alien keeps turning up in the Chesapeake Bay. Watermen checking their pots yesterday morning in Southern Maryland found a Chinese mitten crab -- the third confirmed in the bay during the past three years. The mitten crab is an exotic Asian species that has hitchhiked in ships to California, Germany and England and then exploded in population. The crabs are savored at dinner tables in China. But outside their native turf, they're often considered pests, because they swarm over riverbanks, dig burrows that cause erosion and rip up fishing nets.

Two more Chinese mitten crabs have been reported in the Chesapeake Bay, one near Solomons, and another south of Annapolis - raising questions about whether the exotic species has spread over a large part of the estuary, a scientist said yesterday. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources asked people this month to be on the lookout for the hairy-clawed, spider-legged critters because a pair were found in the Patapsco River near Baltimore. The crabs are savored as a delicacy in Asia, but they have multiplied so fast when accidentally introduced in Europe and California that they are considered an invasive species, a pest that can clog water-intake pipes and cause other problems.

Gee, we think it's kind of cute -- in an invasive, hairy, burrowing, delicacy-in-Asia kind of way. Yet, the Mid-Atlantic is thumbing its crab mallet at the latest thing to wash up in our waters: the Chinese mitten crab, a.k.a. hairy crab (species: E. unappetizis). Beyond a shadow of DNA doubt, two mitten crabs were caught near the mouth of the Patapsco River. Visiting Chinese crab experts were consulted. The state issued alerts. Like the snakehead before it, the mitten crab made Maryland's Most Unwanted List.

Whose ragged claws are those scuttling across the floor of the Chesapeake Bay? After learning that two Chinese mitten crabs were caught near the mouth of the Patapsco River, state marine biologists are wondering if the interlopers merely hitched rides into Maryland waters aboard tankers or are part of a larger established invasion that might throw the bay's ecosystem out of kilter. Great. Just what the Chesapeake needs. Remember the snakehead fish? The zebra mussel? The rodent-like nutria?
