New Orleans Cat Blogging

The Cat of the House is Louis or Louie. This is lb0313's cat. His temperment is just like my Teddy's.

Outside in the compound there are 5 outdoor cats that are basically wild cats. They were too wild to evacuate during Katrina so they stayed here in the compound. Some strangers squatted in the compound after Katrina. They camped on the porch pictured below. They built a latrine in the back yard. But they did not go inside the houses. And best of all they somehow got cat food and fed the cats. No one knows who they were to this day but the cats made it by relying on the kindness of these strangers. The folks here are very grateful to whoever they were.

The five cats are Spot, Boots, Rita, Bandit and Chevy. Chevy was adopted into the compound after Katrina. His people never came back. I was able to get pics of only 2 of the cats.

This is Boots the head tom cat here.

And meet Bandit.....

Hey scout!

Finally got to NJ (delayed flights). What a wierd/nice feeling to see Louie and the kids blogged whileI am back at the 'evacation hotel'. I'm homesick already. Thanks for posting them.

Given that I know he is sitting on a huge pile of everything from my closet - he looks fabulous!
