In need of a good home…

Life on a military base is a come and go situation. Families are rotated in and out like a chicken on a rotisserie. Some families are broken in other ways, extended leaves, hardships or divorce. It’s a hard life. While living in a temporary residence, you try to maintain a homey atmosphere so the detachment from other family is not so lonesome. Pets are one way to accomplish this along with familiar items like photos and memoirs. The love of a pet replaces the spouse when they are away; they become a companion of sorts. But what happens to these pets when the couple splits up; and divorce seems inevitable? The pets are like children; helpless and totally relying on some human sole to care for them.
My daughter is now such a caretaker for former military friends who are getting a divorce. Pictured are three sweet and loving kitties who are the subject of rejection and neglect.
They desperately are in need of a
good and loving home….NOW!
I would like you to meet Daisy, Rambo and Trapper. (These photos really do not do them justice, they are confused and lonely; a bit under weight, and it shows in their sweet faces)

 Daisy is a female, grey and white, spayed cat that is 1 ½ yrs old. Rambo is a slick silvery grey, neutered male that is 1 ½ yrs old. They have never been apart. They both love to have their heads scratched and will make good lap buddies. Trapper is approximately 2 months old, is male and is very sweet and loving. He loves to lie in your lap and purr very loudly.

Please consider adopting these sweet pets. They are free and will come with their necessary items; like liter boxes, feed dispensers and also current vet records. The two larger cats also have a cat carrier.

If you are interested please let me know or you can contact my daughter Holly @ 504-392-0587 and speak directly to her or by e-mail at Holly has a special place in her heart for animals and dearly loves pets….but she is at her limit now with her own, or she would gladly embrace them and offer them her home. She acquired her own cats from the SPCA (The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and one is a rescue from the base neighborhood, which was abandoned by his owner.

Please help find these guys a loving home!
Thank you,

Precious cats!..,It makes me so sad!.., It's really too bad I live so far away from you and those kitties; too far to consider helping!.., I wish you well, and I'm so glad that you are trying to help them!

I've heard a sad story just today. at our bed and breakfast It ended well though; a gentlreman is staying with us who says that he and his wife recently rescued a lost cat that apparently was, much to their shock and surprise, turning circles in the middle of the highway!.., It was "in shock", severely emaciated and apparently blind!..,

They have recued it and after a vet trip, they say it's eating well and beginning to thrive; though the pet identification orogram, ear tattoo info., dates the cat at being thirteen years old!.., Cheers from Silken Purse once more.
