So, unless you live under a rock, you know about Hurricane Katrina. I've been watching the reports and it is all very devastating. One of the things that hits me the most, is that the people couldn't take their pets. Some of you will think I am crazy for saying this, but I would die before I left Festus behind. It brings tears to my eyes every time I see a stranded pet or even someone with their pet. To some people, losing a pet is like losing a child. Don't get me wrong, I feel bad for the people, but pets can't do anything without the help of others. There are now a few places that are helping to go rescue the pets and get them back to their owners or another good home. I really like the following organization http://news.bestfriends.org/
Here are a few pictures of pets they have already rescued.

So, AJ brought home 3 cats on Saturday. They are cute, as long as you ignore the fact that they are cats. I thought of a few uses that most people have already thought of cat stew, cat tacos, and cat tire tread. Well, Sunday night I learned a new use for cats. Alarm clocks. For some reason the one I fondly refer to as "The Bitch" decided that I should be up at 2 A.M. I'm sure my boss liked it, because I got to work over an hour earlier than I usually do. But, I'm still catching up on sleep. Good thing they are outside cats.
