Sharing is caring.

If you are on any of the social media services, you most likely see pleas from animal rescue groups asking you to share their post in hopes of finding a home for a displaced animal. Sadly, it's a problem that has been going on forever but social media makes it more "in your face" than ever before.

Have you ever stopped to consider just how much sharing these posts helps? It does. It really does. Sure, maybe you are not in a position to adopt an animal but someone out there is. By merely sharing a post, these situations get exposure like never before. You may not think that it helps but I assure you, IT DOES.

If you currently have a pet I'd like you to take a moment and think about what would happen to that pet if you should suddenly (or not so suddenly) pass away. Your family or friends would step up and give that animal a home, right? At least you'd like to think that would be the case. Sadly, in many instances, that is not the case.

The purpose of this post is to tell you about some gentle, loving cats that were suddenly left without their human. Once living inside a cozy home, they now live outside in the freezing cold, barely surviving due to the kindness of someone with a big heart.

This precious boy has eye issues. He really needs help.

Just look at this adorable fluffball!

I have been in contact with Kristen Bishop, who runs Operation Izzi and she gave me the following...

"This info is from remaining family of deceased previous owner:

Spirit, white male, approximately 5 yrs old 
Morgan, female, approximately 2 yrs old 
Sampson, male, 2 yrs old 
Jinxy, female, from a litter Morgan had

Spirit, Morgan, and Sampson are very loving. We're in Northeast Arkansas (Paragould) and if anyone is interested in rescuing these cats, they can message me through Facebook.

There are other cats that stay under the house and from what the family has told me, were being fed by this gentleman before his passing. These kitties are semi feral and I don't see them too much, just leave food for them."

If you are on Facebook and want to learn more about the person behind this rescue effort, search for a page called Operation Izzi. There you can send a private message if you are interested in adopting these cats.

I can't quite explain why, but these cats have pulled on my heartstrings. I knew that I had to do something to try and help get them noticed. PLEASE share this bog post. At the bottom you will see buttons for Facebook, Twitter, Tumbler and other social media. USE THOSE BUTTONS, I implore you. Let's network this blog post and make it go viral. I'd love for these cats to be adopted SOON! Thank you.
