There is always so much to be thankful for, but today I want to pass on a story about a friend in distress. Oh, I know, how in the world could I be thankful for a friend in distress? Well, actually, I would never be thankful for anything like that. But what I am thankful for is the amazing sense of community and friendship that exists in the Cat Blogosphere, Twitter and Facebook.

The Plight of FuzzyMice

We have a friend who is an cat rescue person and she has made it her mission to save as many as she can. She always has fosters and works so hard to make sure they are happy, healthy and placed in loving homes. Enter bad luck. Through a series of unrelated circumstances she lost her job. Not good. I understand the human hunting circuit is challenging these days so, as has happened to many, she was loosing her home as well. No job, no green papers, no rent payment. She had about 30 days to vacate. She wasn’t worried about herself, no, she was worried about her foster kitties. She managed enough donations to keep her cell phone and was running her entire rescue and foster care operation from her cell phone, trying as hard as she could to place her fosters in a safe place. She knew that she would end up living in her car, and she had accepted that, but that wouldn’t work with about 14 foster kitties. She was only focused on her kitties.

Many of us had communicated with her for a good while before this happened and we consider her a friend. Lots were outright determined to help. One friend in particular refused to let this happen. The end result is that, while not out of the woods, a certain measure of comfort and an interim result has been achieved. All thanks to individuals from around the world coming together to help one of our own during a crisis. That is something to be thankful for.

Please read her post at The Fantail and see the excitement popping through.
