We're trying to find a home for about 20 cats who lost their human
Does anyone want a cat (or two,) or know anyone who does? The only
requirement is that you should be a good kittie parent (I trust you),
and that you can come to NYC to pick up the cat. Please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org or Sharren at email@example.com if
you, or anyone you know of is interested in adopting a cat. We can get
you more information, like ages, genders, special needs, etc..
If you're not looking for a cat, or can't have one, please pass this on
to someone you think may be interested.
I e-mailed them... hopefully I will get to rescue a kitty! Of course, I would be happy to hear that they have all been adopted already... not that I don't want a kitty, but it would be good news to hear that they aren't having a hard time placing these orphans.
I just recieved this e-mail:
I'm pretty sure the cats I originally sent the email about have all been
placed or will be soon. For more information about these cats, you can email
firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out how else you may be able to help, contact
the ASPCA at www.aspca.org.
and then, a few minutes later:
Thanks for your interest in the orphaned pets (sorry about the form letter
but responses have been totally overwhelming). As I'm sure many of you have
guessed, all 24 cats have since been placed. PLEASE DON'T PASS THE ORIGINAL
CAT EMAIL ON--ALL OF THE CATS THE LETTER REFERRED TO HAVE BEEN ADOPTED. As
we are not a cat or dog adoption agency, but simply trying to help out a
friend, please don't pass on the original message. If anyone is still
interested in adopting pets orphaned by the tragedy, contact the NYC animal
rescue or PETA. If they've placed all the pets, please contact your local
animal shelter or pound and talk to someone about adopting an animal from
Also, if you see my original message on any kind of listserv or bboard,
please post this response or remove the original as we are swamped and the
original call for help should not have become an email spam. Thanks!
Awww, shucks. Oh well! I shall now browse local shelter websites....
