Some of us need to remember that our fearless leader Anne is very close to this conflict should it arise with Iraq. She told me the other day in IM if she goes off line suddenly it will be because of a scud missile attack! I cannot even imagine the type of terror she deals with on a daily basis, and I never know what to say to her when she talks about it (which is rare).
She has honored me and asked me to write a powerful story telling the life of a kitten who was saved after a scud attack. The purpose of the story will hopefully get people to donate to The Cat Welfare Society of Israel. They are trying to come up with ways to keep the cats they have safe from biological attacks,(building sealed rooms, and they are trying to get the resources together to help the ones that will be abandoned when people flee. They need volunteers, and teams of people, and transportation, cat carriers, food, and medicine, vets standing by to help those who will have no idea what is going to happen. And in order to have all that, they need money.
We are starting to put together a page dedicated for just this purpose, but it is still in the planning stages. If you have any extra money floating around and you want to make a donation to help this noble cause- here is the website.
Again, I know that once we go to war everyone will be affected. Sadly, more will be affected then others, and in Anne's country many cats will become homeless in a millisecond with only one organization available to help them all. CWSI
