It is in fact a screenshot from a video on one of the BBC websites. I like it because there is tenderness in the eyes of a woman, apprehension in the eyes of the cat and total destruction behind them both.

I believe this cat does not live with the woman in the photograph. I understand that she found her and you can see that the cat has a collar so I would hope she will be reunited with her guardian and caretaker. The picture was taken somewhere in Oklahoma. I think the tornadoes travelled just south of Oklahoma City, diagonally from south-west to north-east.

When the baggage of possessions is stripped away people see clearly what is important to them: family and health and the family includes the companion animal. And in a strange way disaster and catastrophe brings people together and in doing so makes them happier.

  1. What a poignant picture, the cat safe in the arms of that very kind woman. It must be dreadful to have such severe storms, we moan about our rain in England at times but really we are very lucky here.

  2. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article.
    I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to read more
    of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I’ll certainly comeback.

  3. Poor little soul I’m glad she was rescued by this kind lady, and I’m so sorry for the awful ordeal this has ben for so many people.

  4. I am from Arkansas.We were spared this time ,but I did have all my cats and dogs in the house.Actually the cats were wanting in early and that includes my semi feral.She always the first to want in when a storm is coming.Cats are phycic that way.There are so many people wanting to help clean up,they are turning people away.Us Southerners are like that .

  5. I think it has to do with the shape of Africa and Europe along with the flow of air or something. I saw a TV program on the weather of England and was surprised how different it was from our coastal states. You do get some major flooding and rain.

  6. Wonderful.
    So much devestation today.
    Are we all aware that there is a prediction of asteroids slamming the earth tomorrow.
    I never believe these predictions; but, there are such bad vibes associated with all of these worldly destructions.
