Michigan’s world record cats missing, feared dead in house fire — 6 Comments

  1. Since the firestorm in Sonoma County in Oct 2017, there have been many volunteers trapping cats who’ve come back to burned out areas. Many have been re-united. An album of lost and found cats is posted, with information on where they had lived or where they were found. It’s been heartwarming to see the effort put into re-uniting these cats with their guardians.

    One cat who’d been missing 10 years, was discovered with other cats in the burned area, and was re-united with his owner, via microchip, even though they had moved to another state!

    • I must say I was somewhat shocked to read the news. So sad if the cat were killed. Horrible. But house fires and cats being killed are not that uncommon. I read about them quite a lot when looking for cat news stories.

  2. Oh gosh how terribly sad! I remember finding a friends’ cats dead after a fire… a momma and her kittens… An image like that haunts you your entire life. It doesn’t take much to stop you in your tracks in a fire – one panicked lung-full of burning air and you can’t breathe. It’s awful. Also you’d think that cats being low to the ground might have a better chance, but they might run in the wrong direction or something too… and hiding doesn’t help. Their bodies could be found if burned in the fire – they don’t completely disappear and sorry to be morbid. Lastly, if they got out they might have been kept by others, which is pretty bad too. Beautiful, weren’t they? I’m sure Will and Lauren are devastated…
