Calling All Tuscaloosa Cat Lovers

Ok, this is not my usual writers' posting, but I was so moved by a blog I read early this morning that I've just spent the whole time trying to connect with people who might be able to help. I've done everything else I can think of: Etsy convo-ing, forum links, twittering, and my blog is my last resource.

Just saw a sad blog that is totally obsessing me. This poor woman, Victoria, has an aunt who must go to a retirement place, leaving her house AND her CAT. Victoria hasn't been able to find anyone to take it, and it seems she will have to drop it off at a KILL shelter today.

Do you have any contacts in Tuscaloosa, Alabama? I'm trying to reach as many people as possible.

If you have any forum links, can network, or twitter, could you put the word out?

Her blog is http://accrispin.blogspot.com/

If someone could even give temporary shelter until a new owner could be found, it would be wonderful. They should leave their email on her blog for her to contact them.

Sorry to do this to you. I don't usually do things like this, but I am an animal lover and this really upset me.
