This is the first I am hearing about the floods. So many, to many catastrophes in the last decade.
Sorry to hear about this Cher.

That is a perfece example of what love is. Bless him for caring more about his cat than the rest of the stuff, which can be replaced while the cat cannot. God bless both of them.

That was pretty dramatic. Those waters looked like they was some serious current to swim through.

The link is not connecting but I have seen a lot of the coverage. The flood certainly affects a lot of animals and pets as well as wildlife. Finally got the link with the second try, glad they are safe.

I'm so happy for Kevan and Momo. "...we're elated to see that Yaets and Momo will still have each other." -- Amen to that! :)

Real men love ALL animals. This man is a real man to me. You can see into the soul of a human by the way they treat an animal. My animals will be the first I packed up. Do you put material items over a life? Not me!!! I can get pictures from family and friends. Documents can be obtained from a computer. Furniture and other materials things re-purchased. A life - can never be replaced.

Nawet podczas katastrofy istnieją prawdziwi bohaterowie, którzy ratują nie tylko swoje życie, oby takich przypadków więcej.

Thank G-d Kevan and Momo were able to stay together in the water. I hope they found a good place where they can still stay together.

This is more of a man, than any guy with a roomfull of mounted trophy heads! Show me a man who thinks of number 1 first, and I will show him the door!

When you go to the website you see Momo swimming. Cats can swim quite well when they have to. My cat Buttermilk - who was my mistress during my childhood - loved to get in the tub with me.
