When the Vidor Animal Shelter was flooded during Hurrican Imelda earlier this year, Friends For Life took in 20 sick cats and kittens from the shelter. Eight of them are still waiting for their forever homes: Chadd (first photo), Bradd (second photo), Betty, Angelo, Phoebe, Delilah, Jet, and Meow Ming. Eleven of them have been adopted: Burt (third photo), Agnes (fourth photo), Jake (fifth photo), Belinda, Begonia, Angelica, Jordie, Claire, Miranda, Jewel, and Jermaine. One, Gerard, a 4-day old kitten, ultimately passed away.

These cats all received immediate medical care, vaccinations, and antibiotics.
