only know hy置muns left them, did not know why. only know brother and sister and other left them, did not know why.

did not know water, too, had killing bite.

dog-thing, cat-thing be pets, not be told 礎out evacuate. not be taken off roof by helicopter, be taken in boat.

sometimes. when there be room. small life-sparks, pulled from water.

little afterthoughts.

dog-thing, cat-thing, even horse-thing once be pets, now be lost. now be scrup値. some hy置muns find, bring dry pless, like same for hy置muns. like same for hy置muns, food dish, water bowl soon empty. hy置muns be evacuate to 創other dry pless, many dry pless, where now food dish and water bowl full.

maybe scrup値 be evacuate later. maybe not.

little afterthoughts.

this be called bleg. not be ask for much because not need much. hy置muns, help, plizz?

not be ask that hy置muns send to help scrup値 instead of to help hy置muns, just small extra for help scrup値. something for keep small life-sparks alive...

Done. I am praying for the poor animals that bonehead owners locked in their houses thinking they'd be back. The dead will be more than humans, but will have been loved none the less. Let's hope that the rescuers going house to house leave the doors open when they are done.
 
Oh dear, Muffy. Such a sweet post; you made me get all misty. I will send a little something to help keep the "small life-sparks" alive.
 
*hugs name muffy because own scrup'l, name sparky, isn't here* I know a lot of hy'umuns stayed behind so their dog-things and cat-things wouldn't become scrup'l. But it hurts my heart to think how many didn't and didn't take their animals with them. I'll do what I can.
 
The local news (Denver) carried a story Thursday night about a group headed for the coast with scrup'l supplies- they especially needed pet-carriers of all sizes and whatever food people could donate. I dragged out my cat-carrier and then went by Wally World to get some kibble Friday... The drop-off point was the Denver Dumb Friends League. And what a scene that was!! The lawn was literally covered with carriers- new and used- and workers were dashing about trying to organize enormous stacks of canned and dry food. Bags, boxes, and flats of it- and more coming by the minute... And bowls- a lady and her husband had two large boxes of plastic pet-food bowls (several hundred, I would guess) that "they didn't need anymore"- that's what she said- and all were brand-new with the bar-codes still on 'em, heh. Cars, trucks, SUVs- a stream of them. I helped for a while with traffic control and we got it organized fairly well. Then I spent an hour with some others, taking apart the carriers and nesting the same sizes together... again, several hundred of them. People kept coming and dropping off- food, carriers, bowls, boxes of flea and tick powder and collars- and collars and leashes, too. Almost all of it brand-new, straight from the store. When I had to leave, donations had slowed but were still coming in. The director of the DDFL was kinda at wits end- she and several friends had planned to drive the stuff down on Saturday, but hadn't anticipated THIS sheer volume... I understand that a call to a manager type at Conway Western Express from one of the board members brought a semi, which departed early Saturday AM for the coast- no charge (can't confirm that but I believe it). Almost none of this (beyond the initial story Thursday night) made the news. Good thing I was on the ball- the worthless huy'man I allow to share my den just sat around drinking cheap beer and wondering how the Broncos will fare this season... Please help where and how you can... Squeaky out.
 
Wow- what are you feeding Ninja?! Sardine milkshakes and herring dumplings?? That is one ummm, 'big' kitty...
 
Ninja, like all the furry ones, is a rescue. One of Beth's co-workers had a boyfriend move in. Boyfriend had a parrot. So, cat which had lived with this guy for 12 years... was going to be put in a shelter or worse. When he arrived, his belly dragged low enough he dusted the wood floors. That is an 8 pound lighter Ninja. We took him in. And he appreciated it, even if he did have to compete with 6 other cats at that point. He was a wonderful night-purrer. He's no longer with us, being the point man in the Castle Advance Party in Heaven, sent along some 6 years ago. He's got plenty of company now though... Gabby, Mickey, Sebastian, and Little Guy. Sniff.
 
...hopefully he can rub noses with Spike- my old cat, he was with me through thick and thin for 19 1/2 years. I lost him last December... he'd been deaf the last coupla years but ate well and got his skinny butt around OK. I was gonna take him for 'the shot'if he stopped eating but (Gott sei Dank) he spared me that by slipping away quietly in the night; on my bed where he belonged. He was a 'free kittens to good homes' pick-up; there will be more kitties in my life but never again one like that furry little shitbird.
 
Muffy is a wise scrup'l ... "test first, then lesson" indeed. I've been traveling, and just heard the news that people had been given opportunities to leave - but their pets could not go with them. I don't know specifics yet, but that made me weep - and then to read Muffy's on top of that ... *sniff* My furball is my only child, unless you count the Hubster ... I wouldn't leave.
 
Donation made... must keep scruple life-sparks lit. Thanks Muffy- keep up the good work!
 
Thanx Muff - you speaks the truths. If only life would teach you the lesson first & then the exam...
 
Thanks for the reminder that some of the family members impacted by Katrina have 4 legs. (Made my donation to the LSU Vet School's Hurricane Katrina animal shelter today.)
 
I wrote about leaving my pets if I were in New Orleans on ROFASix. Bottom line is my pets are my family, we share the same fate. I would be one of those they would have to ferret out and take my gun from my dead fingers before I would obey a mandatory evacuation order - without my kids.
