This is awful. I cant bear to think of these babies outside. I will give $20 per cat to a verifiable rescue who will take each cat in. Maybe some others will do the same.

I know that for some, the stories of Hurricane Sandy are a distant memory, but the horror lives on for those people directly involved and for their animals who have also been affected.
I received a call today from my friend Joann who works at ACC in Staten Island. She was in tears after going to a disaster site in Staten Island where there are 17 homeless cats being fed by a gentleman who lost his home completely and is now living in his car. The cats are homeless because their owners also lost their homes. These cats are living in feral houses and Joann brought them some hay to keep warm. These cats are all young and friendly, they are not outside cats and are crying for attention and love. They tried to follow Joann into her car and can not understand why they are being left out in the cold. This is beyond heartbreaking and is only one small area that has been devastated by this last hurricane. Please if anyone can help even one of these cats, that would be wonderful. The oldest appears to be about 4 years old, a neutered tiger cat and he is awesome! The others are under a year, petite and adorable. White/tigers. Another cat is a 2 yr male, tiger/white, extremely friendly. Joann will have all the cats altered/tested etc. She needs help ASAP, as she is going on a planned vacation at the end of next week! Please if anyone can help email me and I will forward your info on to Joann. or email her directly firstname.lastname@example.org
I wish I had pictures, but believe me, these cats are worth your time. We are committing to a few, so if there are any rescues out there who can squeeze one or two in, the cats would be forever grateful!
Thanks for your time...

I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
