Katrina Cats Now Available for Adoption at the
Wisconsin Humane Society
The caring staff at the Wisconsin Humane Society
has been working overtime to shower some unsung
victims of Hurricane Katrina with tender loving
care. Who are these unsung victims? One goes by
the name “Katrina” while another is “Lucky” to call
Milwaukee her new home.
When the devastating
Hurricane Katrina displaced thousands of animals
including cats and kittens who had been living in
shelters in Louisiana and Mississippi , the Wisconsin
Humane Society deployed a team of staff to help
evacuate these poor souls from deplorable conditions.
WHS has been caring for these four-legged friends,
sheltering them and providing them with love and
affection until they received a clean bill of health.
Each of these brave little hurricane survivors wants
to put their stormy past behind them and look to
a bright, dry future. They all want just one thing,
a warm and dry home they can call their own.
They have their own
distinctive personality. Little Katrina is a 7-year-old
brown and black tabby who loves to toss her toys
in the air and chase them. Rainbow is a cuddly 3-month-old
who prefers to curl up in your lap and purr. Her
3-month-old sister Lucky is as swift as the wind
and has loads of energy. These cats and more than
40 others are looking for loving companions.
The cats currently
available for adoption at WHS were among a group
of 80 cats and 12 dogs that arrived on September
22. All of the dogs have found loving homes and
several of the cats were transferred to other humane
societies who are helping them find loving homes.
