Can we ask fer purrs?

Some of you may know that the Mom, volunteers at a no kill shelter with the blurp and the Big Guy. Last weekend it was discovered that the shelter has an outbreak of Feline calicivirus. So far 6 10 cats have either died or had to be put to sleep because of this. The Mom can't volunteer for fear of bringing home this cat flu, that is deadly, to us cats.

The shelter is doing everything possible to get this under control so that they do not lose another cat to this virus. A dumpster was donated so that ALL the cat trees, litter boxes, scratching posts, bedding, etc could be thrown out.  Could we ask for some purrs, prayers, good vibes - anything for the cats at Center for Animal Rescue and Education, southcoast ? We know all the volunteers and directors there would appreciate it. The Mom loves those cats as they were her own.
 So The Mom feels helpless and can't do what she loves there, so can you guess what she brought home to FOSTER????

We are crossing everything we've got that the outbreak will abate very soon. That's a nasty problem.

As for the fosters, we're sure you'll be welcoming to them!

Purrs,

We are purring for all the animals at the shelter. How sad!

But we think it's very nice of all of you to let your mom bring some animals to foster.

Thank you for all you do to help the sweet furries in trouble and needing homes.
I saw your comment about not have a photo of your VSquillion you adopted. If you let me know which color, which one, the name of the one that adopted I will send you another out to you.

OMG! I did not know that calici virus could kill that quickly. We have two cats with it for years and years. Maybe the trick is improving their immune system and doing what you can to reduce stress. I imagine the latter would be very hard in a shelter. I am praying hard for you!
