Just before Christmas I wrote about that special place “The Katten brigade” A place for very special need cats. A place where they are loved, finding the care that they need. The past week we had some sad news about “The katten brigade”. I just wanted to share with you what happened. I know you care about them and they could use your prayers at this very moment.
There was a fire in the shelter. The fire started in the kitchen and spread around. The ladies who are running the shelter woke up from the smoke and were trapped at the second floor. Fortunate the fire departement was very fast and could save them. They were admitted to the hospital with smoke inhalation.
Some paralyzed cats were trapped. More then ten cats lost their lives in this horrible event. The forty other cats who survived are taking care off by friends and family. They will get their special care and love from them until Diny and Sab are back on their feet. Some cats are really traumatized and all will get extra care (medicine, Bach-Therapy,…)
The cat community in Belgium is “supporting” in anyway they can (benefits, moral support). It warms us to see how animal lovers care for each other in times of need.
We won’t forget the kitties that lost their live, they are now at The Rainbow Bridge, healed and healthy. They will find there new and old friends. Chyna, Moby, DaisyBoo, June, Toetie, Mimimuis, Célia, Sterre, Stacey, Beethoven, Clowntje, Kitty and Minou, you will be missed. The two dogs they had didn’t survive either.
Lets send some positive energy to Diny, Sab and the surviving kitties. They could use it, so they can rebuild their dream in the near future.
I want also to thank the fire departement, they went beyond to save as many possible cats they could, they were bitten & scratched by the cats who were afraid but that didn’t stop them to return in the burned house with extra oxygen and heat cameras.
I want to end this with following saying: “After bad luck, good fortune comes”. Lets hope that this is true for “The katten Brigade”.
