Desolation


This picture from Associated Press shows a lady called Kay James sitting in her driveway cuddling her cat in a towel after her house was destroyed by the tornado in Moore, Oklahoma yesterday! I just found it very poignant and so sad! 

All our thoughts and prayers are with the people affected in this terrible devastation!

  2. Dang. Poignant is the word. It's just tragic, what an insane mess.

    Here's another Cat survival via the BBC: http://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/images/67724000/jpg/_67724544_67721911.jpg

    "Resident Rachel Hilton holds stray kittens she found in the debris of her parent's home."

    Small consolations, but I bet the residents of Moore in particular, are clinging to every bit of hope and smile they can.

  4. We are so sorry for all those people and animals who are now homeless after that tornado and can't imagine how dreadful they feel after everything has been destroyed. We pray that they will get help to put their lives together again and rebuild their homes.

  20. There are so many sad stories attached to this tornado. Our mommy just sat down and cried when she read about the children that died in the school.

  21. :(
    I just hope everyone will be ok!!!
    Hope that lady and cat will have a good home soon!

  22. That is sad, but it makes me feel better that she has her kitty. We got all leaky-eyed watching a TV interview with a lady whose house was just destroyed and during the interview her little doggy poked his head out of the rubble and they were reunited. I guess we are trying to focus on some of the little good stories in the midst of all the losses. Purring for all of the Peeps and animals in trying to survive this.

  25. You just can't imagine it can you?! Have you seen the lovely video of the woman who discovers her puppy survived while being filled for a news interview - it is so lovely!

  26. Oh Austin it was a most awful and terrible thing that happened to all those people....we feel so sad for everyone who lost a friend, family member, home, animal - so much loss is hard to bear. This photo makes me extra sad but I'm glad the lady and her cat have each other.....

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  27. It's very sad, it must be awful to be caught up in it. But it's lovely to see her and her cat together, there have been other lovely stories of people being reunited with their beloved pets.

  28. Moore, Oklahoma is going to need every prayer we can send them. This picture is sad but I am so happy this lady and her ginger kitty are alive and have each other. I can't help but wonder if she is sitting on her driveway where her house once stood. I am thinking that is the case, it is hard to tell with everything tossed around by the tornado.

  29. At least Ms. James has her baby, safe & sound. That's reason for happiness. But, yes, it's a mess there and I feel SO sorry for those folks ... I'd sooner face a hurricane ANY day than one of those funnel clouds. I hope I never see one outside a TV screen.
