Thinking of our Friends

My heart was heavy when I read the news about the terrible fire that destroyed the home of Lilly Lu, Mu Shue, Iris and of their mom, Laura. We are still waiting to hear word about the fate of Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and Iris, but I am purring and purring that somehow they were able to escape to safety. Here is a link to the news story about the fire.
One way you can help keep cats and dogs safer in a fire is with pet rescue window decals that will alert rescue personnel that pets are inside your home. And you can get them free from the ASPCA. We are going to order some today.
Be sure to check in with the Cat Blogosphere for updated information. And let us all hope for a miracle.

I believe one of your comments may be loaded with a virus if you click; perhaps a good idea to delete?

I'm sending many prayers to Framingham; I hope they're found safe and sound.

I also wanted to add - I found your blog a few weeks ago, and have enjoyed it immensely; my children think it's great!

If you are ever inclined, please consider giving a PSA to all of your readers - it applies to dog and cat owners alike. Kitty parents, please, please keep your kitties inside. Dog owners, please ALWAYS keep your dogs on a leash. Even if your dog lives amicably with (a) cat(s), it doesn't mean s/he will respond favorably if they find themselves outside their homes, especially off-leash, and a cat runs from them.

My most beloved Polo, the coolest kitty ever, was outside enjoying a late afternoon stroll along our property line, when a neighbor's dog gave chase. Later that evening, I had to make the most horrible decision a pet owner must ever make, and say good-bye to my buddy of nearly 11 years. Please, for your pet's safety, keep your cats inside, and your dogs on a leash.
