We were told we had to evacuate our home which was surrounded with rapidly rising and turbulent water . Rescuers were waiting in a boat in my front yard but I couldn’t find my cat, Major. He would normally come to my call but he was afraid of the howling wind and I looked everywhere for him to no avail. Finally, the rescuers could wait no longer and we had to leave my precious cat abandoned . I was devastated ! . Two days after the storm, we were allowed back in our homes to assess the damage. With terror in my heart I searched for my kitty and found him huddled in the attic rafters, very much alive, hungry and very happy to see me! A major “hug” for Major and me!!
