Good News Tewsday: Alabama Tornado Cat Found in Rubble


Grab a hankie, folks!


Bugsy the Cat was lost after the Lee County, Alabama tornado this week. Her home was tossed from its foundation and flipped like a pancake. The family survived, but couldn’t find Bugsy afterward.


“We searched the whole house by hand the first day and we didn’t find her,” Hunter Lashley said. “So we were thinking the worst…”


But Hunter and his wife, Emily, kept hearing what sounded like faint meows. So they kept looking.


A news crew recorded the search. Since it’s Good News Tewsday, you KNOW there’ll be a happy ending!

    Every “thing” we have can be replaced with something better… except the lives of those we love.
    So happy to hear Bugsy is back and purring in the hearts of the people who love her!
    My cats and I are crossing our paws and fingers that the missing two-leggers and pets will also be reunited with their families, where they can face the future together.

    That is good news. I hope there are more stories like this from the tornado.

    That is the best, really to catch that on film too. I hope that everyone affected will find the grace of god and be as lucky.

  5. We live outside Memphis where we get regular tornadoes. They’re so unpredictable. We have a tornado closet set up under the stairs with cages and cat food and water. In 2009 as the sirens were going off, Mom put us all in our cages. Then she went to get some water before joining us. As she turned around, she saw a huge amount of leaves blocking the outside door. A tree had fallen in a split second and damaged our roof and yard. Always be prepared!

  6. When disaster strikes, it’s terrific when one’s family stays complete.
