Hello Kitty

I am originally from New Orleans. In fact, my entire family (mom, dad, 4 sisters, 1 brother, various BILs & SIL, and 13 nieces and nephews) still live there. They survived Katrina by evacuating and eventually returning to their original homes pretty much unscathed. The rest of N.O. didn't all do as well. Especially the animals. There were so many abandoned cats and dogs that N.O. is still dealing with the aftermath to this day. There are a gazillion stray cats running around the city because the original huge # of abandoned cats multiplied. And they continue to multiply. The SPCA continues to put dozens of these poor little animals to sleep every week. :-(

Well, my sister has been volunteering to help the animals since Katrina happened. She goes every week to put food in various feeding spots throughout the city for these homeless animals. She adopted a Katrina dog, Rex, who was rescued from under an abandoned house. Now she has 2 kittens that need a new home. Aren't they cute?

Anybody out there know someone who knows someone who lives in the N.O. area who would take 1 or 2 sweet kitties into their home and save their lives? I would, but I am severely allergic to cats!

Anybody? Anybody? Bueller??

Awww, they are precious!

My sister who lives in Maryland just adopted a dog who was rescued from New Orleans. He is so sweet. Unfortunately he only has one eye, I guess it was pretty tough on the streets of the Big Easy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

That was very cool of your sister!! My sister's dog, Rex, has some health problems but is also the sweetest thing. They guess that he is about 11 years old and part chihuahua.
