Hurricanes sure have been in the news, lately. And the aftermath of these storms result in many stories of stranded, soaked, lost, frightened pets who were left behind or somehow separated from their people. Thank heavens for the brave and tireless souls who work long hours in disaster zones rescuing cats, dogs, and other critters.
Here’s a link showing 20 successful cat rescues from a variety of hurricanes. My favorite photo is the one of the kitten snuggling against the boot of a rescuer. Heart wrenching. http://kittentoob.com/cat-news/20-amazing-cat-rescue-stories-hurricanes
