A Surprise

June 25, 2008 at 7:41 am 7 comments

I am a regular visitor to LOL Cats. It’s a fantastic way to start my day. I get a little giggle (or sometimes an outright laugh!) and it gets my day off to a happy start.

As usual, I clicked on the link in my bookmarks and went, expecting to see the normal cuteness and hard to read captions that I have come to love.

Instead I found this:

cat

and I almost cried.

I know it’s supposed to be funny, but that is one of the most touching pictures I’ve seen in so long.

Any kind of natural disaster is awful. Beyond horrific. The human toll is amazingly high. We lose lives, property, possessions. The cost is more than we can count sometimes.

Not often do we think about the effects on the pets that trapped in these areas as well.

Kudo’s to this man and all those like him who rescue not only the people who are affected, but the beloved pets as well.

    Great photo! I know that’s one of the most wrenching parts for disaster victims–hope we’ve learned something from Katrina.

    Wonderful picture..The humane society around here took a lot of dogs from Louisiana, after Katrina. Very sad when animals get caught in the middle.

    Wonderful post! It’s something that I think about all the time lately. I can’t imagine the devastation of going through something like this and then to think of the animals, who have no idea what’s going on – it’s very, very sad.
