BILL AND MISS KITTY
Bill Harris was trapped in his home for three days in Slidell, La. Harris found himself standing on a chair above rising floodwaters with his cat, Miss Kitty, in one of his arms. In the other was a two-way radio which he used to call for help. Harris would be rescued eventually and rushed to the hospital, but without his cat. Miss Kitty would not be abandoned for long, however. Noah's Wish volunteers were alerted of the situation and rushed to find her. After Harris underwent surgery, he described his cat's appearance and told them of her whereabouts. Several days later, they were able to trap a cat that matched his description. Almost a third of the 506 animals in the Slidell shelter were identified, thanks to hardworking volunteers.
