Kitty Litter

Toyya Braskey lives with 100 cats. They are her life. Now the city says they have to go.

Pat's inquired with Oklahoma health department officials about what the rules are. Once she hears back, she'll start looking with a realtor. When Pat's home in Galveston sells, she will have more money to invest in the new shelter.

Toyya cried for a week at the idea of leaving Texas. She's never lived outside the Houston-Galveston area. Her attorney told her to stay and fight. But right now, leaving seems like the best plan. Even if the city lets her stay, she doesn't have the money to pay rent after October. She recently received a $1,000 donation, but donations that big don't come along very often.

The idea of knowing only two people in Oklahoma -- Pat and her daughter -- frightens her. But they promised to help move all the cats. And the cats, after all, are what matter to her most.
