Meet our red head, named after the most famous red head of all time, Lucille Ball. Just like her namesake, she is extremely animated and had to be held for this picture; she just wouldn't be still. Lucy came here in mid August, rescued by a passerby from the side of the road, when she was about 3 weeks old and sickly. After some antibiotics and good food, Lucy has become very healthy and is leaving next week for the Big Apple to find her forever home. Since she likes other kitties, we hope that she will meet her Desi and they can have a fun filled life together. We will miss her as she is such an endearing character and really reminds us of her namesake.

We want to let everyone know that we were very fortunate in the wake of Hurricane Irene. Although the Sanctuary lost electrical power and it won't be restored until Saturday (we do have generators that have kept the lights on and the washing machines working), everything else is fine. All the animals are safe and there has been no damage to any of our buildings. In fact, it was such a beautiful day on Monday that the cats were able to sun themselves on the catios. However, not everyone in this area has been as blessed, and there has been a great deal of destruction and suffering. We'll do what we can to try and help the others and are truly grateful for having been spared.
