A Moment for Prayer

I, Axel G Chocholoza, want us all to take a minute to pray for all the people and animals and creatures of California who are being swept up in relentless and unremitting fires. We pray for their safety and we hope that those unfortunate humans who lost their homes will have the strength and fortitude (and state assistance) to rebuild their lives.

A friend sent me a photo of two fire evacuees - a little wire and his best friend at a shelter. It does my heart good to realize that California allowed humans to bring their pets into shelters, unlike the heartache that was evident in Louisiana during Katrina when this was not the case.

I hope this man and his wire can go home soon.

We certainly will join you in prayer Axel...we are glad that the governator and his ligatures were at least semi prepared. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and the picture. That sure is a cute (little) wire. No wonder folks think I am fat!

Axel, it was so nice of you to do that. What a picture! I'm so glad that they at least have each other.

How sad for all those people. We have a cousin who lives half way between LA & SD. We haven't heard from him yet, but we think he is okay.

Koobuss Kisses,

It's very sad, lots of devastation here in SoCal. The air is awful to breathe!

One good thing is that many people who did have to evacuate did not have to make a choice to leave their pets behind... that's progress.

Much love,

It can't be stressed enough how important pets are to people, especially the elderly. I'm so glad to hear that pets are being evacuated in California with their families.

What a gorgeous little wire, too! Thanks for the reminder to add these people to our prayers.
