    I was just reminded tonight that, due to the WTC tragedy, along with all the other misery, there are also now many single-owner pets in the tri-state area who are most probably orphaned. There are also pets who had to be abandoned because of the evacuations in lower Manhattan.
    I know that many of us here are pet owners. If you're interested in donating to help support and find new homes for these pets, the ASPCA has set up a page on their web site http://www.aspca.org . Petco is also accepting donations.
    Obviously, the support efforts for the many human victims of this tragedy should be first and foremost. I just wanted to post this in case there were any other members who had not thought of this additional situation and might wish to donate to it as well.

    Russ, good idea. I'll see what I can do.

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Perhaps this link can be added to the top of the forum pages along with the other important charities in this time of crisis.
    I mourn for all those affected by this tragedy. And as a pet lover and cat owner, I strongly feel towards this affected group as well.
