Aw, thanks Lindsey for posting. I went though Hurricane Andrew in 92 in Miami, unfortunetly had to leave my cats at the house because we had to evacuate, I couldn't bring them to where I stayed at through the storm. When we were finally able to return to what was left of my house, all of my cats were accounted for expect for "Bonkers" who was kinda my fav! lol. A few days later my brother who was patching my roof up for me, came inside to tell me he spotted him next door. I was never so happy to see that cat, as I was that day! Especially after all the devastation, it was definetly a bright spot. :)

Why do I put myself through these videos? The woman lost everything material, but got back what really mattered.

This is wonderful. These pets are going to be very therapeutic for the people who lost everything. For some, it might even be a reason to go on. Animals are the best aid in recovering from a trauma.
