posted before about Switters the Katrina kitten found on the street by

group I’m in working to reunite Katrina pets with their owner. She’s
nursed him back to health, domesticated him, chipped him, neutered him
generally brought him back to health! He is FELV+. She has to move

every rescue group and feline organization she could find. She has
her friends and neighbors but part of the problem is that those handful
people who have returned to New Orleans are all taking care of other
in the street! ALL shelters in the Gulf Coast areas are full; almost
are no-kill and almost all would euthanize Switters because of his FELV.
his caretaker, found a place in Ashville that will take her and her
but landlord would not even consider a fourth cat—go figure. Her
cats hate Switters and she really can’t just keep them separate.
told Jean, Switters’ caretaker, about a place called “animal rescue”
in Denver but she knows nothing about it nor can she
fly Switters up there. Jean has talked to Marley’s fund and they
are full but put him on a waiting list. Jean is moving to Ashville.

just put everybody over the edge. Anybody out there who might be able
help? This little guy went thru so much to stay alive! This is
