Cat Found Alive 5 Days After California Wildfire

A couple who had to evacuate a California wildfire Thursday returned to the ruins of their home five days later — and found their cat, Ruthie Rosemary, had somehow survived. Debi and Jeff Brusatori had put the tabby in their car before evacuating, but she somehow escaped and they couldn’t find her. When they returned to the site, they heard a meow coming from under their burned out truck. There was Ruthie Rosemary. Firefighters aren’t sure how the cat, who’s 3 to 4 years old, survived the blaze. Ruthie Rosemary was unscathed except for some singed whiskers and eyebrows. The Fork Complex Fire, which was started by lightning strikes, has consumed more than 22,000 acres, reports the Los Angeles Times. — Read it at CBS News and see more photos on Facebook
