Mancat Monday: The Horrible Irma Weekend and Remembering 9-11-2001

mancat monday brian 09112017
It’s Mancat Monday and today we’re all passing along our best purrs and prayers for all of our pals in Florida. It was such a horrible weekend all around down that way and we’ve still don’t know the extent of the devastation. It all makes our hearts hurt. Like many other bloggers we’ve got so many dear friends down that way and we’re thinking of all of them.

We’re not out of the woods in Upstate South Carolina either, of course it will be nothing like the others are experiencing. We’re expecting 4-6 inches of rain today along with tropical storm winds and possible tornadoes. That’s the outlook for here.

I’ll make this short today because so many have other things on their minds.  I’ll just leave you with this…

always remember
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Thank you for this post, and for the reminder about 9/11. It’s always good to remember the tragedies that take place in our lifetimes and remember the hardship people have gone through. I hope many donate to help those impacted by Irma the same way they did for those impacted by Harvey. The world needs to continue to become a more empathetic place.

Stay safe Brian…….hope Irma doesn’t bring any really BAD weather your way. Rain and breeze are one thing but good grief – that storm SURE did make a mess in Florida! As for 9/11 – my Mom and Dad will NEVER forget…..they were out of the country in Europe at the time and were NEVER EVER so happy to get back home.

Hugs, Teddy

My friends in Florida have reported that they are okay; they are WAY inland. I was worried about the cats at Hemingway House on Key West, Florida, but the reports are that everyone is safe there. My family in Georgia have been evacuated already, but I offered to put them up in our house in Michigan. I was in a TV studio on 9/11/01, and watched the horror on big TV screens. It was terrible then, and still today. My heart goes out to all who are mourning today, and to all those who are suffering from hurricanes, floods, earthquakes,… Read more »

We are hearing that most everyone is coming through OK so far, and were glad to hear that included you. We’re relieved that nasty storm is now finally fading away, though we know there is still so much to deal with for those impacted.

We will never forget….all these years later it still brings tears to our eyes. 🙁

Irma has been one very nasty storm wreaking damage and devastation in so many places. Our hearts go out to all of the folks so horribly affected. Lots of prayers and help will be needed.

We hope you don’t get that much rain – we need to push that Irma out to sea.
