Kimi, the black cat, a fursib cat, two dogs and their pet parents Akane and Fonzo have been living in a motel room since a car hit their home and the gas line. They were forced to evacuate and then their home was burglarized. They are chefs and unemployed since Covid. There is a GoFundMe (see the link in the bio of their Instagram

Life in a cramped motel room got worse because of the poor air quality is limiting their time outdoors. This pet family story is one of thousands. We all know what big hearts pet lovers have, please do what you can to ease the suffering. Pick one one out of the 9 and it will make a big difference.

  1. This is so helpful and important. Thank you for sharing these, Layla. It’s easy just to feel hopeless and not feel like there’s anything we can do from afar. It’s good to know there are actionable items that will help make a difference. XO

  2. That is an excellent resource Layla. Those fires are so scary and it sure makes the heart ache with all those people are going through dealing with this. Thanks to all the firefighters, they are such heroes.

  3. Layla,

  4. Fire and water are two of the most devastating entities that there are. We send purrs and prayers out across the world to all that are impacted. It is even more heartbreaking to learn how many of these fires have been intentionally set.
    Thank you for the wonderful info for places to donate.
