When an EF3 tornado leveled her home in Monson, Massachusetts this week, Daphne Meaks assumed her cat, Merlin, was lost, or worse, that he hadn’t survived the calamity.
Anyone in Meaks’ position would have thought the same thing. Her home was reduced to a now-too-familiar pile of rubble and Merlin was nowhere to be found. It was inconceivable that he could have escaped harm’s way.
But Merlin Meaks is no ordinary cat, and purrhaps by exercising his wizardly chops he miraculously survived the onslaught and was discovered under the debris on Thursday — unharmed, but a little thirsty.
