'Cathy' Raises $10,000 for Homeless Animals

By: E&P Staff As marriage nears for Cathy and Irving, about $10,000 in real money has been raised through the cartoon couple's online gift registry for homeless animals.

The Universal Press Syndicate-distributed Guisewite -- who's scheduled to be a guest on tomorrow's "Jane Pauley Show" -- is having her characters tie the knot in the Feb. 5 "Cathy."
