Gas Leak!

Posted by Harry Shubin on

Eight fire trucks and various rescues arrived, FFGW was called to evacuate our cats, but by the time our Leesburg staff arrived, our caretakers Robyn and Lauren came racing out with the cats safely secured in their carriers!

Why, it’s almost Saint Catrick’s Day!  What – you’ve heard of St. Catrick, haven’t you? No?  Gosh, well gather round, lick your paws and hear about the great rescue.   Once upon a time, in a shelter far, far away, there were a lot of kittens and cats that needed a home.  And, there were homes for them!  Only, the homes were very far away.  Just when it looked like there was no hope, suddenly a cat appeared - driving a big SUV!   St. Catrick (there are conflicting reports, but we believe he was a redhead – ah, orange...
