     Please read Niame's story:    
Niame is originally from Turkey (raised in Germany) and always wanted to come to America.  She was able to realize her dream in the early 80s when she settled in FL and joined the Army. Unfortunately, the dream did not last. During her first parachute jump 17 years ago at the Ft. Benning Airborne School, she fell wrong and severely injured her spine. As a result and over the years, the injury led to her now being 100% disabled
In addition to this, she suffers from PTSD, panic attacks, social isolation, and borderline agoraphobia, resulting from a traumatic event that occurred while she was enlisted. Her  beloved kitties have helped her cope with her condition. They are "wonderful, loving sweethearts" who love to talk and love to go to bed and snuggle with her.
But she has gotten to the point where she really cannot take care of herself anymore -- physically or financially. She struggles to afford the food and the monthly flea medicine, and lives in fear of needing vet care for any of them. But more importantly, she just can't physically do it anymore. Niame has been alone since losing her fiancĂ© last April when his car overheated and he was struck and killed by a truck when he was pulled over on the side of the road.
To illustrate how isolated she has become, while she was talking to me, someone rang her door bell and she had to go. When she called back, she told me that it was employees from the local gas/convenience station come to check on her because they had not seen her in several days. She had not left her home in days because of the panic attacks brought on by her last visit to the Veteran's Administration. Going out is a real ordeal for her.
Because of her PTSD, Niame is extremely anxious about the welfare of her cats, and agonizes about them being caged. She is willing to let them stay with her in a temp foster situation, if a rescue would be willing to try and get them adopted for her, but because of her condition, she would not be able to bring them to weekend adoption events, however. I asked her how long she can hold on and she said "as long as it takes". If it would be easier to adopt them out from a rescue facility, then of course, that would be what she would do. She just needs to do something she says.
Please help her if you can!

Niame's descriptions of her 7 kitties:
Angelina and Kara are 6 yrs old,  spayed, and vaccinated. Both girls lived by the big garbage dumpster at the apartment where I lived. The kids in that place were unsupervised monsters who would abuse the cats to no end and Kara has never recovered from it. Both are very sweet but Angelina is more outgoing.

Maxine (Max) is 6 yrs old, spayed and vaccinated. She was found in the woods screaming hear head off from hunger and trauma. I was only to keep her one week but the man I was keeping her for believed cats belonged in cages at least for 20 days in an new environment. Max would not have it. After her paws were bloodied and her nails all broken from trying to get out of the cage, I took her out. She was so grateful, slept with me all night and would not leave my sight. When the man came back he got angry at me and we got into it. I kicked him out and kept Max. She is what I call a "Moxie". She is very vocal. She will tell you right away if she does not like something!

Baby is five years old, neutered and vaccinated. He was abandoned as a kitten in the shrubbery in front of my Ex's house and would have died from the heat and dehydration if he had not been found because it was August and 105 degrees outside, with no one in sight, and not even noon yet.  He should be named ",gentle giant" because that is what he is with his 12lbs. When I come back from anywhere he will report to me and I listen and tell him what a good job he did and pet him and he loves it.

Next are Morris and Sari (Sari means Gold in Turkish), both 2 yrs old, fixed and vaccinated. I got them as tiny kittens after they were found next to the body of their dead mother. The people who found them were feeding them Carnation milk and were not wiling to buy them kitten replacement. So I ended up with them. They are both wonderful. Morris is a menace while Sari is quiet. Sari likes to find a nice corner and sleep but Morris is always into something but when he gets tired, he  to me and literally sleeps in my arms.

Last but not least: Penny (for her copper highlights) is 1 yr old  and fixed. My fiancĂ©e was at home while I was out and the subdivision children had found her during winter when we had really bad, cold weather. He told me that she was hungry, shivering and scared and he kept her. She is adorable, goofy, can play 24/7. She is terrorizing everybody, including me. She bounces off the walls and tries to play with all her siblings and tries to get treats from me by acting all innocent.

Memphis TN: Reposting! Artie is Desperate. Three Street Dogs Need Your Help! Young & Good-Natured!

To: Beverly King <>

A lady in North Memphis, Artie, is desperately trying to save these abandoned dogs from going to Memphis Animal Shelter or being abused in the neighborhood!  Artie loves dogs so much and tries to help them, but she cannot have any dogs of her own because she lives in a rental house, and the landlord does not allow pets.  So, Artie has the dogs in a yard of a vacant house, and she  takes these dogs to a park everyday for exercise and to keep them socialized. They are very friendly dogs.   Funds are being raised for their medical expenses, but we really need  foster homes or permanent homes!   Please see the attachment and pass around.  Maybe someone will foster or adopt one of these sweet dogs.   Thank you!

Please share with all of your contacts and please put on facebook. I need to get this girl adopted and could really use some help getting her story out there, also as of Monday I need to move her from the vet clinic that she's at to another vet clinic, I can't afford to continue to pay $15 a night, does anyone have a vet clinic they can refer me to that will let me pay $10 or less a night? I can only continue to do this for about another week my money is running out. this sweet girl only has demodex mange so she does not need isolation but she does need to be at a vet clinic for another week while she continues her treatment. please forward far and wide thank you. I can be reached at the number below or through email.

Hi Liz, I found this sweet little puppy girl 2 days ago while I was out Pet Sitting, can you even believe?  She obviously was dumped in a very nice neighborhood. She's out of harm's way now and at my vet clinic getting treated for demodex mange.  She is the sweetest little thing ever!  Despite the obvious horrendous neglect, her spirit has not been broken! She is full of love and joy and just loves to give and receive affection.  She is a beautiful soul of a dog once her hair grows out she's going to be even lovelier.  She is going to have orangish brown and black coat possibly medium length.  The doctors think she's four to five months old.  Would you mind posting this for me?  She is going to need a very very special home because that's what she deserves...she is in Spring, Texas and I can be reached at the number below, thank you so much!!!

Kayla also said, if a rescue can step up to take her that would be fantastic or of course if there's a potential adopter out there who will just love this girl and nurse her to health and adopt her permanently, that would be absolutely fantastic!!! Kayla is definitely qualified to screen people so if anybody does call wanting to adopt her they will have to go through her adoption process of course.

Donations are welcome; if you want to make a donation, email Kayla and then she will put you in contact with the vet clinic since she wants to moderate if there is a stampede of donors :-)

Kayla will be picking her up on Monday from the vet clinic and will be her foster/adoption representative, however if there is a very reputable group that can take her on she would certainly be okay with that. They would have to be someone that she truly trusted.  Kayla says "this is going to be a special adoption but she will stay with me until the right home or rescue group comes along."
