Hi all, This came across a rescue list I am on, and I wanted to pass it on.
The lady had a fire, and is waiting for her house to be rebuilt. It took
longer than expected, and two of her foster volunteers could not extend.

If you or anyone you know might be interested, please don't hesitate to
contact Susan at susani...@msn.com or 215-435-5273. Thanks so much!

*Subject: **[UCNeighbors] Fire Cats in need of short-term fostering*

Hi, all! A couple of months ago, some friends had posted a note for me on
this list after we suffered a terrible house fire over at Springfield and
St. Bernard. It was a call for help placing my cats who had survived the
fire (sadly, we lost a third recently due to complications from the event)
in temporary foster homes. The response was wonderful: I managed to place 8
cats in 8 separate foster homes: a minor miracle for anyone who has ever
tried to find foster homes for animals. It was a huge relief for me, amid
all the chaos and grief and stress surrounding the fire and the ensuing

Needless to say, our house is nowhere near on the schedule for
reconstruction originally given to us by the contractors (wrangling with
the insurance and mortgage companies mostly to blame). As a result, I am
now faced with needing to find new foster homes for two cats within the
next week or so (of course, our house is nowhere near the completion date
that the contractors originally gave us), and was wondering if you might
know of any folks who would be willing to take a cat in for something like
4-6 weeks.

Habib, a 13-year-old neutered fat "creamsicle" cat (I call him that because
he is orange and white), is very funny, friendly, and talkative, and his
current foster parents love him, but have obligations to be away come
mid-December and cannot continue to care for him. Martini is an orange
tabby, neutered, about 6 years old, but FeLV positive. He has NEVER
exhibited any signs of illness (he was minutes away from euthanasia as a
tiny kitten in the ER at the Penn Vet Hospital, where I worked, when I
whisked him home), so he appears to be a carrier of the virus, but it would
be best for him to be in a home without other cats, or maybe with other
cats who also have tested positive. Currently, he is sequestered in one
room in a neighbor's house (due to another resident cat), and cries a lot,
and is very lonely. It breaks my heart. He is a true people cat and seems
very depressed without human companionship.

If you or anyone you know might be interested, please don't hesitate to
