Aside from the distant whir of chainsaws, Coral and Doug Love’s neighborhood was awfully quiet Sunday. The Loves were doing rounds of sorts, making sure everyone had plenty to eat. 

 

“For all we know, we’re feeding other wildlife too,” Coral said while putting some food down for the cats the two have been feeding.  

 

“So, check this out, the firefighters also fed cats and left nice notes: ‘Hope you don’t mind, we fed your cats,’” Doug added.
