Apartment Fire destroys home of @BoSoxAmy, @SeaBassCat, and @DottieGP

Photo taken from my own archives

Hi Pals,


Midway through #nipclub tonight - the following tweet came from @BoSoxlAmy
"Fire in our Apartment building, but we are all okay."   Thank Cod for that!


A tweet a little later said that they had lost everything in the fire and Amy said she was "so sad."   Our hearts immediately went out to them.


@GeorgeTheDuck and typist immediately swung into action and set up a chip in for the family with the money going directly to AmyBoSox's paypal account so she will have  access to it immediately.   George has the link in his blog at http://georgetheduck.com/2012/02/help-for-our-friend-seabasscat/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Georgetheduckcom+%28GeorgeTheDuck.Com%29


@Seabasscat does have a blog at http://www.seabasscat.com/ but I  don't know how soon they would be able to post.   I have a feeling they were lucky to get themselves out of the building and all they have is a cell phone.   Our pal @Ryker_Tyker's family lives in the same state and has been in touch with Amy via texting.  Ryker's mom will have more news tomorrow.  (updated later - here's the link to Ryker's blog http://www.atonkstail.com/2012/02/fearless-friday.html


In the meantime, if you wish to help Amy, Sebastian, and Dottie, you may do so at the chip in located in @GeorgeTheDuck's blog

You may also help by keeping Amy and her family in your thoughts and pawprayers and send them positive energy and strength needed to get thru all of this for weeks to come.


We are so very thankful that Amy, Sebastian, and Dottie are okay, but feel so very sad for them that they lost everything.   That means all their personal photos and any personal keepsakes important to them that cannot be replaced - everything.    


We're so very very sorry Amy that you have to go through this. HUGS.

Hi, Mario,

Saw your comment on Zoolatry about maybe turning word verification back on. Question: Are you getting more spam POSTED or merely being dumped in your spam file? If posted, two suggestions: 1) Turn on comment moderation for all posts over (however many days old you choose) cause the older posts are the ones usually targeted by spammers. 2) A better option would be to change your comment setting from what you have, which includes Anonymous,(Anonymous is a very famous spammer.) to -

"Registered users (includes Open ID)"
