I hope everyone can send some vibes and prayers for my friend and one of his cats named Ms Kitty. Heres what happened. I went down to our friends sanctuary to spend 2 days there. Wednesday evening was great. Spent some time with the big cats and then played pool to until about 3am. I went to bed, thinking I would get some good sleep. Wrong!! I was woken up by our friend yelling JOHN, wake up, Rick's house is on fire!! So, being in a deep sleep, I woke up in disbelief saying what? Well, she yelled the same thing. Our Friend Rick also owns exotic cats. He owns Rowdy, the Bengal tiger. I said oh my God, flew out of bed and tried to get dressed as fast as I could. We hopped in her truck and headed on over to his place. Since he only lives about 2 miles away. Well, lucky for him, the only thing that was damaged was his garage, totally destroyed. But, if it wasn't for a passing motorist who spotted the whole thing, it could have been worse. This guy pounded on the door waking up our friend. Well, he grabbed all of his animals; 3 cats, 2 snakes and 1 rabbit and brought them out of the house. He even went into the burning garage to rescue 3 mice. Yes, these 3 mice are snake food, but he didn't want to know they died in the fire like that. Well, he put his cats in his truck, didn't have time to put them in their carriers. However, the fire department wanted him to move his truck further away. When he opened the door, poor Ms Kitty was so frightened, she bolted out of the truck and down the street. So far, we have had no luck finding her. To make things worse, it was very cold today and it was snowing when I left. All his other animals are fine, including Rowdy, who was very calm during this whole thing. My friend is worried sick about his little girl. She is a little over a year old, but she is a tiny thing, a gray tabby with beautiful green eyes. We searched all over and no luck. There are areas just down the road, where we think she may be hiding, we saw her paw tracks. But, we searched these areas and could not find her. So, we need as much help as we can get, to bring Ms Kitty back home.
