I'm sure that everyone has been following all the news from Japan - the huge loss of lives, and now the worry that the nuclear reactor situation is going to get worse. Besides all the human tragedy though, quite a few people have asked what is happening with the animals as well. Here's a link from E_Cat on what to do if you'd like to help.
There is apparently a Cat Island too - though it seems that most of the human and cat inhabitants are safe though this cannot be verified.
For people who say that animals aren't important at a time like this, tell that to this guy.
