Preparing for floods in Flash Flood Alley

By John Hofmann 

They call our region Flash Flood Alley for a reason. Water here can rise quickly and cut off escape routes, tear homes from foundations, and rip up even the sturdiest of trees and send them barreling downstream. Lake Travis rose more than  50 feet in a day during a 1952 flash flood, and just last year Central Texas experienced deadly flooding on Memorial Day, then again over Halloween.

Please Have a Heart!

Our funny Valentine, Isabella, needs surgery! This sweet girl came to SSCFOA in September of last year, barely eight months old, with four kittens, a badly injured joint on her left front leg and a VERY loving spirit. Once her kittens were weaned, we had the injured leg evaluated and learned that Isabella needs something called an “arthrodesis” to fix the joint and allow her to move around pain-free. Isabella was so young, we needed to wait until her growth plates closed, but she will finally be able to have this much-needed surgery in March.
