CAT RUNOVER AND SHOT-PKG


Hearing about what this stray named Laurel has been through --

will make you believe cats truly do have nine lives.

Laura Braun

ARC Board of Trustees

59:00

Most cats you wouldn't imagine would survive all of these different issues:04 even one issue at a time could be too much for most pets:09

Last Thursday, a roofer found Laurel on the side of the road -

where children were throwing rocks at her.

Rescued by the Animal Refuge Center -

they discovered she had shot gun pellets in her leg -

And fractures in another leg - likely from being run over by a car.

She was also underweight, covered in fleas, and filled with parasites --

but even still - fighting to stay alive.

Braun

06:20 06:23

to survive all of that we couldn't give up on her either

So the team at Specialty Veterinary Services is fighting too -

changing her bandages, giving her medicine

and trying to get her strong enough for surgery.

She's quickly become a staff favorite.

Stephanie Stowell

Vet Tech, SVS

11:30 11:39

she definitely needs 24-hour care. i think she probably would have gone home with one of us as a foster except we need our sleep during the nighttime hours

But even with all of the love and care she's received -

what Laurel needs now is money.

The ARC started a fundraising campaign because those surgeries could range from 75-hundred to 10 thousand dollars.

Braun

02;06 02:14

This poor little kitty received injuries and suffering in our community so we're really hoping the community steps up to help make this right for her

So this cat they say has so much love to give -

can join a loving home someday.

In Lee County, Laura Roberts, NBC2. Return to index of stories...

Vincenzo Betulia / Chef/Owner, Tulia Italian Restaurant

"We opened up 18 months ago and we got out of a cannon from day one."

FOR CHEF VINCENZO BETULIA. THE RECIPE FOR COOKING UP A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS. BEGINS WITH NAPLES.

Betulia

"The growth is here, the pattern is here, people want to be here, they want to stay here."

BETULIA OPENED HIS ITALIAN RESTAURANT MORE THAN A YEAR AND A HALF AGO,,, AND SAYS BUSINESS HAS BEEN ON FIRE.

Betulia

"We had an awesome season and now we're pushing again into the summer. Even on the weekends we're still doing season numbers, so it's pretty incredible."

SO IT COMES AS NO SURPRISE TO HIM THAT NAPLES WOULD BE DECLARED THE BEST CITY IN THE NATION FOR JOB GROWTH. THAT'S ACCORDING TO A STUDY CONDUCTED BY MOODY'S -- AND RELEASED IN FORBES MAGAZINE -- IT RANKS NAPLES NUMBER ONE. WITH AN ESTIMATED ANNUAL GROWTH RATE OF 4-POINT-ONE-PERCENT OVER THE NEXT TWO YEARS. CAPE CORAL CAME IN SIXTH IN THE SAME STUDY.

Dr. Gary Jackson / FGCU Economics Professor

"Usually, in a recovery, you tend to create more jobs because you're making up for some of the jobs that ave been lost."

F-G-C-U ECONOMICS PROFESSOR DR. GARY JACKSON SAYS A BIG DRIVER OF THE GROWTH IS THE CITY'S RECENT POPULATION INCREASE. ESPECIALLY AMONG RETIREES.

Dr. Jackson

"Their portfolio that they're saving for retirement, or whatever investments, is dong better because the stock market is doing better."

WHILE HE AGREES WITH THE STUDY. HE SAYS THE ROAD TO RECOVERY IS NOT WITHOUT ITS POTHOLES.

Dr. Jackson

"There's a lot of issues that could shock the economy, but right now things are looking pretty good."

A TREND BUSINESS OWNERS LIKE BETULIA CAN ONLY HOPE WILL CONTINUE.
