k-- call ny spca and have them go rescue the cats. they will probably not press charges due to her current medical problems. there's no reason for the cats to suffer. i wish your aunt and your family the best. prayers for all of you!
will do halloween or not, as you wish. love halloween but get no trick or treaters. this year, however, i am going t or t with olivia! she will be a dalmation. ( in a side note while she was trying on her costume the family female beagle tried to "h..." her. sounds awful, but was really pretty funny. sure made olivia laugh! 8-)
