Many pet owners on the Eastern seaboard are struggling right now as they search for pets caught in the path of Hurricane Sandy. This story may give them hope.
A year and a half ago, the Kent family’s cat Simba went missing during the Joplin tornado. Their home was destroyed, and after a while, it appeared that Simba was gone for good, too.
The family searched shelters, posted flyers and combed the neighborhood, but found no trace of the cat.
On Sunday, the family visited the site of their old house. Jan Kent caught a glimpse of a cat, and when the family made overtures toward the kitty, she came right up to them.
She’s a wee bit thinner, but still the same old Simba. They’ll be moving into their new home next momth with Simba in tow.
