    Oh Greg! That is a great article! Everyone gets a name too! Adorable fur babies! I would definitely leave with 1 or 2 or 3...

    In the event an animal doesn't have a name he or she is quickly given one by staff, who try not to give any two residents the same name.

    A glance around the cattery section of the shelter provides ample examples of the staff's imagination: Ziplock and Twitter are purring contently in their cages while their neighbor Amazon tucks into his dinner.

    There's also a Flea-once and a Swiffer McPuddles.

I wish they would have just quietly brought her in but no they had to tell us her story and tell us (grown adults) to be nice and to help her. I'm pretty sure we could have figured that out on our own...well some of us anyways. She should be able to tell her own story and only to people she feels comfortable with.

    Anyways I'm still concerned that we haven't heard from some people! I hope they check in soon! Please be safe!

    Counseling does help. Maybe just keep your medical doctor in the know about what you're dealing with. Harvey has put a heap of new problems on your plates for the coming weeks and months. I definitely understand. I was in auto-drive for a long time in regards to holidays and birthdays.

    I agree about your co-worker maybe coming back to work too soon. And yes, you are all adults so I have no doubt you would know how to handle the situation. I thought work would take my mind off my problems, but I think it just allowed me to not think about the past and maybe not grieve properly. I postponed the inevitable.

    I'm worried about BFMD! She's in Corpus. Everyone be safe and check in when you can.

    Austin Pets Alive! has become the last refuge for hundreds of stray or abandoned cats and dogs that were plucked from danger from flooded neighborhoods and animal shelters across southeast Texas.

    Their staff have toiled day and night with thousands of volunteers to coordinate rescue efforts and bring the homeless critters back to their Austin headquarters.

    Thank you so much for telling us more about you. Can't imagine how hard this all must be.

    Please don't beat yourself up for being a 'bottle it all up until you explode' person. You can't help how you feel. You're doing the best you know how, and it sounds like you're actually doing a pretty dang good job.

    You're dealing with a nightmare you can't escape. You have the extra agony of facing anniversary dates, birthdays and holidays. It's understandable if you made some decisions you wish you could change.

    Yet, you're taking care of your kids, you're going to work, you're dealing with the chaos of Harvey! Plus, countless other things we could never guess.

    Though you're hurting, you're not reacting with bitterness toward others as many people do after tragedy. On the contrary, you're always expressing concern and empathy.

    Oh, I bet that idiots of all stripes send you through the roof! Tragedy does that. Tolerance for idiots goes way down. (Like the one who told all of you, grown adults, to be nice to the new girl.) You know what's important in life, and it's not wasting one minute of your precious time on them.

    Counselors can be helpful. They can allow you a safe place to get it all out. You don't have to worry about THEIR feelings; your own are all that's important.

    However, it's not everyone's solution. So you do what feels right for you. Same for medication. It can be helpful too, but it's your decision.

    You know your own self the best.

    We're glad you're here. Take good care of yourself in the weeks ahead. We want to know how things are going in your area too, so please keep us in the loop...

    Thanks Boots! We feel the same. Your posts have always been special. Now I understand why. Don't want to get all gooey, but I want to thank you for being the 'wind beneath the wings' of so many people here.

    You have such a gift for encouragement, especially for the personal tragedies of loss, as well as all this Harvey mess.

    So glad I 'met' you, and that you're here with us. Please keep posting too about all that's going on in your area as well.

    Clinically and personally it can be helpful to when needed set yourself with cues to allow you to weep.

    Comfi clothes, candle , grab kleenex musci that stirs you get confortable and give yourself permission to go there.

    A lot of people fear they will go out of control or that it wont end. Actually when given permission , without efforts to hold your grief in that itself rains it out.

    Music super important select something that moves you -- trigger it let it flow you willl stop let the pressure out .

    Not only will you feel , for a peroid of time lighter - and that is ok as well.

    You take care of yourself in other domains you eat sleep obtain water - there are resons why we are designed to weep

    have a weepfest - you are entitled,,,,,,,,,

    Depending on the age of your children they can join you if so inclined

    allowing them to weep is also taking care of them as well

    Ah CARIIS you hit the nail on the head! I couldn't listen to any music after my son passed. Music was my sons life. It took almost four months after he passed for me to even turn the radio on. The first cd I put on was the Eagles. There are random songs that set me off. Ozzy's Mama I'm Coming Home all the way to country music. We listened to all kinds. He loved the music that I grew up with.

    If you are in Houston/Humble TX let me know I can come out help with whatever is needed. It's really heartbreaking and we are doing what we can.

    Agree, 100%. You can't stop your sorrow; it needs to come out and be processed, as CARIIS indicates. And, sorrow pops up at the weirdest times, totally unexpected.

    Someone please tell me, that this person, knowing a hurricane / flood was imminent, was not hosting a party for a boxing fight. Are you kidding me? Please tell me that this is a misprint, or something... All I can say is thank God the seven children were fortunate enough to have been rescued. No thanks to their mother, BTW. This is the kind of BS that really, really rubs me the wrong way. Now I need to go cool off a bit.

    Kim Martinez, 28, waited Saturday for insurance adjusters to come to her Southbelt/Ellington neighbourhood, a devastated middle-class area of southeast Houston.
    The mother of two was hosting a watch party for the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor boxing fight last Saturday when floodwaters forced about 15 people to the attic. They escaped the next day. Seven children were rescued by a neighbour’s boat.

    These articles always focus on cats and dogs, but I keep wondering how many rabbits and guinea pigs were abandoned to drown in their hutches, how many caged birds died in theirs.
