I posted on this thread a few days ago about a guy who was stranded in his attic in New Orleans who was a coworkers friend. He rode the storm out because he had a dog and a cat who had just given birth to a litter of kittens.
He ended up moving from his house to a hotel in the French Quarter with several other displaced people. They found plenty of food in the hotel, and actually ate steak a few nights! They didn't have any water though. The guy, Jason, got in touch with a good friend here in Jax who headed out to New Orleans in his van to save them. He knew he would have some trouble getting through the check points so he had the hospital here give him a letter to help him through stating that they were expecting this person as a patient (he has a terminal illness). He was almost stopped but he begged the National Guard to let him through. He got to the hotel and by the time he was leaving he had accumulated 7 other people and 17 animals! They are all headed back to Jax. I know they are going to need to find homes for some of the animals and was thinking about asking my fiance if we could have a kitten, but I don't know that would be the best thing right now.
