On Saturday, I received a desperate email from the Animal Shelter where we adopted Alice the Cat. [We love Alice, but we needed her like we needed a hole in our head!]
It stated that hundreds of animals were turned in or picked up before and after Hurricane Ike. The facility was overcrowded, understaffed and electricity had just been restored. It was struggling to keep up, just like so many places in our city.
Many animals were going to be euthanized.
Meet our new family member (because one hole in our head wasn’t enough):
His name is Ike.
