The rescue group St. Seton's Orphaned Animals is trying to help disabled Vietnam Veteran, Kenny Garner find homes for his cats. They are all fully vetted, Fiv/Felv tested neg., etc.  Their photos can be viewed at  Mr. Garner is about to be evicted and these young, friendly, gorgeous babies are on their way to a kill shelter.  PLEASE, if your group could just take ONE, that is one less who will die.

“Poor Mr. Garner is dying, is afraid of losing his home, can’t pay his bills, but he is most worried about the welfare of his cats and two dogs,” said Cathy Markwith, a volunteer with KGARL. “It is emotionally draining to see this man that served his country, but can’t get the help he deserves for the short time he has left.” - BY CATHY DYSON, THE FREE LANCE-STAR  Click here to read the rest of his story
