When wildfires swept through Santa Rosa, many people barely had time to escape. That meant that many people didn’t have time to look for and rescue their cats.
A 12-year old cat named Abu was an outdoor cat so when the fires spread, his family had no idea where to find him. Fortunately, Abu hid in a storm drain and survived the fires, but burned his paws in the process. Rescuers found Abu and took him to a vet where he was reunited with his owners.
Hopefully Abu will recover from his burns. At the very least, it shows that cats are smart enough to find a way to survive nearly any disaster.
