Good/Bad News - Apartment Fire Update

CJ Home from vet after fire in apartment building.

Hi Pals,

Fantastic news -  CJ the kitty who was injured in the bad apartment fire where @SeabassCat and family lived, is now home with his mom Kathi and hopefully will be okay.  Pawprayers have been answered for him.  


But his mom, Kathi, desperately needs our help now.  It seems she had no Rental Insurance on her belongings in the apartment.   Everything burned up, and she even lost her car.   Now she has vet bills for CJ on top of losing everything she owned.    Our buddy Ryker_Tyker has a chip in on his blog for Kathi and CJ along with the chip-in for @Seabasscat and his family.  If you can spare a dollar or two for Kathi, it would be so appreciated.   If you can't, that's okay, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and maybe leave a positive comment on Ryker_Tyker's bloggy.   Oh, the chip-in for Kathi isn't updating with the current totals, but she does get any money sent to her paypal account (the chip in) and deeply appreciates the acts of kindness.  Kathy, Ryker_Tyker's mom, and @Seabasscat's mom all volunteer their services at Wayside Waifs Animal Shelter and are good friends.


Now please go over to Ryker_Tyker's blog and read their update that was written Saturday night - before CJ Kitty came home.   http://www.atonkstail.com/2012/02/sunday-for-sebastian-cj.html

Another piece of good news - M talked with Amy (Seabasscat's mom) on Twitter Saturday night for a bit.  She's still in shock, but they are slowly getting their life back together.   Saturday night they were to spend the first night in a new apartment, had already gone out and bought a bed for the mom and dad and some necessary items for Sebastian the cat and DottieGP.   They are very very appreciative for all the $$, prayers and support that they have received and will express it themselves when they have a computer to do it with.  They are still operating with only a cell phone.   Once again the animal community came through.   M and I are humbled and so proud to be a part of such a wonderful community.

We are so glad that CJ is home now! We got our mom to give some green papers to both Amy and Kathi. It wasn't much, but we hope it helps.

Yay! I just heard the good news about CJ being home. *happy ducky dance*
We'll help however we can. We dropped what green papers in the jar we could. Maybe we can do more later. I knew every single $1 adds up, though. We'll definitely send prayers and ducky hugs and purrs for Kathi and CJ as well as Seabasscat and family no matter what.
*ducky hugs*

Oh my, I am so glad CJ is okay although he looks pretty banged up - I am sure super scared too. You are totally pawesome for getting this post up, thank you. I am just getting caught up on the details about the fire etc. What a tragedy, but you said it... the paw community is pulling through - nobody should have to walk the journey alone. Paw forward.

Mom and I sent some green papers for both Amy and Kathi. I'm so glad CJ is home and on the mend. Time and love will do the rest!

Lisa's post was harrowing about CK and about what transpired the night of the fire. I'm proud of our community for how fast everyone acted to help. Pop gave some green papers and TW is gonna do what she told you but needs an address, which Amy is going to give us. Thanks.

Sparkle said...

I am so happy that CJ is home, but I feel bad for Kathi - she lost everything and her car and her other kitty. I am posting tomorrow about her and CJ to help.

If you don't know what features are available in your area, try exploring the websites of online apartment locator services. You can search for apartments based simply on whether you want a one- or two-bedroom apartment or by other features. It's a great way to find out both what your pad will cost and what neighborhoods have the features you want.

I sure am glad to hear that CJ is okay, what an awful ordeal for all of them.

It's good to hear that CJ is back home now. Being at home is ALWAYS better than being in hospital. I hope she doesn't have too much pain and that she will recover soon. Many, MANY purrs being sent her way... from all twelve of us... and the peeps, too.

So good that CJ is home where he is loved and needed! The Twitter community is just wonderful!

I am so glad to read this update. This is one of the most awful things that can happen to us. To lose our home, our vehicles, every single thing we own, and a pet and injurted other pets..horrific.

I too am proud to be a member of the Animal Comminity both here on the CB and on Twitter. The best people in the world are right here where we know and love them.

How great CJ is home with his mom. I chipped in, it was not much but I hope it can help. It's such a difficult time but I hope all our prayers, purrs and positive thoughts reach them.
