Doggies and Kitties

Greetings to all. Hurricane Katrina really left a mess, and I hope you all are willing to donate a little cash to the American Red Cross for relief to her victims. There are so many homeless people right now and they could use our help. Go the if you'd like to donate, and do it soon.

On a lighter note, I was reminded today of something cute that Reece said last year. When he and Emily got their kitten, Cutie, they weren't sure about its gender. Their mom, Dawn, told them they would let their veterinarian check Cutie and tell them its gender. When Reece relayed this message, he stated, "We're going to take Cutie to the vet and find out if it's a male or an e-mail."

Here are some quotes regarding animals that I think are cute. Love to all.
