To illustrate the ongoing needs of animals during this holiday season, we have highlighted the story of Noel, the magical cat who survived after recently being hit by a car on a busy street in Metairie. After the accident, Noel lay motionless in the street with a broken jaw and several broken teeth. Another cat darted up and down the street as if to warn other motorists of his friend's injuries. A passing motorist, State Representative Tony Ligi, saw the black cat in his headlights and slowed down to give assistance. Noel, bleeding from her nose and mouth, was rushed to a veterinary clinic.
Noel's jaw has been reset and wired, and she is expected to make a full recovery. Her vet bill has reached over $700, so we are asking everyone to give at least $5 as a stocking present to the Humane Society of Louisiana to help pay for her medical expenses. Noel, a wonderful 2-year-old short-hair, is also looking for a home for the holidays. To donate to our special Noel Fund, please send your stocking stuffer to the Humane Society of Louisiana, P.O. Box[masked], New Orleans, LA 70174. To inquire about adopting Noel, please call[masked]-humane.
To honor Mr. Ligi's actions, the Humane Society of Louisiana recently presented him with our group's Good Samaritan Award.
A recent video shows Noel during her recovery.
Noel sends you her love and appreciation on behalf of the Humane Society of Louisiana.
