help still needed for furry victims of Katrina

Adding to what my kitty friends Camilla and Madeline have written; most humans have been evacuated from New Orleans, and attention is now turned towards finding people trapped in buildings or bodies, there is also relief work being done to help the 'pets' that were left behind.

CNN reported that "a doctor euthanized some animals at the request of their owners, who feared they would be abandoned and starve to death. He set up a small gas chamber out of a plastic-wrapped dog kennel." and also "in Mississippi, many pets were either left to fend for themselves in the powerful winds or trapped in flooding cages as owners fled. Others survived, only to die after days without food and water."

These are very heartbreaking stories.

Many cats and dogs (and even birds) who are lucky enough to have been found or partially evacuated are now in animal shelters across several states. These animal shelters need assistance and donations. Many shelters are now too full. You can help if your humans live in those states and can assist the shelters to temporarily re-house kitties or dogs.

Assistance is also being provided to try and reunite animals with their humans.
Katrina Found Pets

I would not ever want to be separated from my human in such a tragedy.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


I had the triple brush last night. The wirey brush, the thin comb and also the knobbly glove.

I think tonight, we are just going to be sad.
