    So sad about what has happened to so many people in OK – their homes destroyed. Good to hear at least one good story from all this

    I am happy that you were able to find your cat! I am glad that Sammi is back where that kitty belongs, with family soaking up the cuddles!

    I am sorry that you must now rebuild your home but at least you have all the family together. Walls can be replaced, the members of the family cannot. All my prayers that everyone manages to recover from this quickly.

    That would be the thing that would scare me the most is losing my furbabies… with 6 of then it’s hard to keep them safe, but I’d what I could to save them. So happy for these people finding their sweet baby… brings tears to the eyes…Prayers to all the people affected by this, but Midwest people are strong and they will recover.

      that scares the crap out of me, too. i recently moved to a part of the states that is notorious for hurricanes and i don’t know what i’d do if i couldn’t save my cats :( i am so happy for this couple and their cat

  6. Amber Mac says:

    I am so happy for ya’ll. I know that there were a lot of human lives lost, but sometimes we seem to forget about the animals who lose their lives as well in a crisis such as this one. I’m glad they found their beloved kitty, I know I would be even more devastated if I would have lost my kitty on top of everything else. Thank-God she/he is alive and ok…

    This photo was very moving and portrayed the bond between humans & pets and cannot imagine the relief to have Sammi back in your arms as well as neighbour & family too.
    Prayers to you all in Moore, OK. USA, from a little village called Kingsthorpe in Queensland, Australia. Even from 10,000 miles away “Down Under” we feel your pain & suffering.
