“Los gatos sin hogar necesitan tu ayuda.”

That translates from the Spanish as “The homeless cats need your help,” according to Google.

It also was the message of the annual Cinco de Meowo party held, appropriately, on Cinco de Mayo (or May 5) in the Youngwood Fire Hall.

Hosts were Jeannette-based SOS Cat Rescue and Greensburg-based Wayward Whiskers Animal Rescue. Both groups are dedicated to the rescue, care and rehoming of lost, abandoned, stray or unwanted cats and kittens.

Some adorable, irresistible kitties were among guests at the party, which also included a limbo contest.

Organization reps on hand included SOS president Dana Milliron and vice president Lori Hall and Wayward Whiskers president Katelynn Jones. Event chair was Suzanne Pierce.

Volunteer Karen Conder embodied the spirit of things in a furry kitty costume topped with a tiny sombrero.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
