G is getting close. They say we'll start seeing it get rough about 1AM and the eye would make landfall about 1PM tomorrow, but as with any hurricane it's sketchy.

We are watching the news and they predict landfall tomorrow. It is all over the news here. There are weather bug type programs out there where you can see the path of the storm. Doesn't look like New Orleans is going to get hit head on this time but still will get about 6 foot waves.(predictions from the news)

We've already gotten our first feeder band this afternoon and all kitties evacuated along with 2 of the neighbors kitties as well. Peeky hates the car

PS. Katie they're still not sure where she's gonna land, but somewhere between Lafitte and Morgan City.

I seriously do not understand how/why anyone could leave an animal behind much less tied up or crated with no chance at all to make a swim for it. These people should be banned for life from having animals in their "care".

Thanks ya'll, we just do what we can. Neighbor was having a hard enough time trying to evacuate her pit bull and was crying over the cats so I took them. It would be nice if those people who left their animals tied up in their yards would get some kind of penality. There really was no excuse this time around; evacuation arrangements were made for both humans and animals. All you needed for the animals was a carrier and proof of shots, something every pet in America should have anyways.

Poor Peeky hates car rides, but because of 2 extra kitties someone had to ride outside a carrier. I figured she would be least likely to give me problems while I was in traffic. She was a good girl and sat on the floor of the backseat under an empty gas can and meowed loudly, (which wasn't so nice but understandable).
