“We can never know about the days to come
But we think about them anyway, yay
And I wonder if I'm really with you now
Or just chasin' after some finer day

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'”


 


Carly Simon,


Anticipation


 


 


This very nervous very cute little furry guy


Like thousands and thousands of dogs and cats


Stands very anxiously in his Gulf Coast holding pen


Hoping for a miracle that will change his life just like that


 


They anxiously wait for the arrival of the human they love


And they will anxiously wait and wait and wait some more


Until they see that face - that one particular human face


That deep inside their furry hearts and souls they adore


 


If you know of anyone at all who has lost their pet


In the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina’s wrath


And they really don’t know how to find their lost pet


Please compassionately refer them to the following path


 


http://www.petfinder.com/disaster/


 


In most instances all the animal rescue organizations can do


Is post pictures like this on this lost pet webpage on the Internet


Most of these forlorn creatures have no ID and have not been microchipped


And the vast majority of these lost creatures have not found their humans yet


 


This will be an extremely massive undertaking


For the next several grueling months to come


And I hope and pray that for both human and pet


Thousands of them will have a joyous reunion outcome


 


In the several joyous human and animal reunions


That I witnessed at our pet rescue camp in Mississippi


We could never really tell for sure who was truly happier


Because both human and pet were filled with utter utter glee


 


 


Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin' me late
Is keepin' me waitin'


 


 


And if you can afford it, please microchip all of your pets, so this doesn’t happen to them, or to you, if any type of disaster should strike your own community.

lovely little terrifed waif. I'm glad you are doing so much to help reunite critters and their humans. Can't understand what idiot gave the orders to leave the pets behind.

Bless you, Ed... keep posting all your copious amounts of insider knowledge and wisdom for us to share and be educated with. And thank you for your efforts... we will all feel moved to respond to different things, but, in each act of giving, some relief will be brought somewhere... every little helps.... And, who knows... one day we may be blessed to get to see the full picture of how things have worked their way through the chain from beginning to end. You are ALWAYS a Happy Ending to EVERYONE who is lucky enough to call you friend - be they animal (Turner), vegetable (Burnside) or mineral (pure gold! - Rebecca!! :)) Bless you and thank you, Kate xx

Ed, Would you please post the sites where we can go to make donations to help keep these precious pets safe and fed until either their humans or or another finds their way to adopt them. I have found the Northshore Animal League and donated to them and committed to sponsor a pet, but I know that there are smaller shelters for these sweet babies that don't have the resources to advertise their websites, that also need our assistance. Thank you for all that you have done to help these precious angels in animal wrap.
Take care,
Sherry
