A Different Type of Selfie
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
“Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat.” ~Mark Twain
And so I introduce my Sunday Selfies. And yes, Mom L and I have a message for any of my readers who care to visit and comment.
A courageous human in Aleppo, Syria has chosen to remain in the war torn city to care for its humans who need transport to hospitals wherever the hospitals can remain safe to operate. And as he moved through the rubble he picked up cats along the way who had been left behind by humans who understandably fled to save their lives. Read recent update here.
Everyone in the cat blogging community knows of the Cat Man of Aleppo. Others have blogged about the recent bombing of the Aleppo cat house this week as well as the use of chlorine gas on the house and surrounding area. A place where children came to play in an play ground and to play with those cats who were identified as friendly by a red cloth collar on around their necks.
My Sunday Selfie is for the cats Mr. Alaa continues to try to tend to and save. Please do not ever forget this man and the cats of Aleppo.
Notice the blackened paws from escaping the bombed Ernesto Cat House.
Again, please notice this kitty’s darkened legs and paws from the bombs. On the day the bombs hit they also took out the children’s playground and a local blood bank.
If you are interested in joining a small group of cat pals workin’ on the most useful call to action, visit this private Face Book group. But please be respectful of the restrictions placed on helping.
I am joining The Cat On My Head Sunday Selfie Blog Hop.
