Maybe you shouldn't house so many animals in a structure with out a proper fire supression system.  Maybe.

Any time describes someone to me as a "cat person", I'm immediately interested, but quickly disappointed.

/toxoplasmosis is a helluva drug.

As a former cat foster, her dedication is extraordinary. I donated.

Post the story on something other than a faux news station and I might read it.

If you read the article, there were so many cats because other fosters dropped theirs off on Friday night for adoption events on Saturday. She has obviously done this dozens of times before with no problems until now.

What kind of charity work do you do?

This.

My wife and I have had the discussion that we would try to save our animals, but there are a couple of fur kids who we know would panic and not be catchable in an emergency.

People safety has to come first.

Because her house never burned down before.  Sure they're only there for one night at a time, but they were there on the wrong night.  Vet offices, kennels, pet hotels, etc. all have to be inspected by the local fire dept.  She should too if she is regularly housing a large number of pets.

Animal shelters are already overrun, thats where local volunteers, like this woman, open up their own homes for cat fostering and adopting. Vets and kennels and hotels are all businesses. There are some people who recognize that cat overpopulation is a bigger problem than for-profit businesses are willing to handle.

/cat foster for 2 years
//have had 45+ cats adopted
///this woman's only crime was that she loved too much

You're a very nice person.

Howabout some compassion for the burned lady and the dead and burned cats, instead of criticizing the lack of a sprinkler system?

Certainly the kitties had nothing to do with it.

Looking forward to seeing if "Maybe you shouldn't (X) without a proper (Y) suppression system.  Maybe." becomes a new meme.

/fingers crossed
