Yesterday, in the late afternoon, my neighbours across the street suffered a house fire.

I'm still in shock about it ~ I can't even imagine how they feel. They left without coats or shoes.

All family members but one were able to get out safely. Their cat didn't make it out. I will be haunted by the vision of that poor kitty frantically climbing the curtains in the living room window in a vain attempt to escape the fire for the rest of my life.

I've never felt so helpless.

my thoughts and prayers are with your neighbors, as well with you having to endure the tragic death of a pet that is near and dear to you.

It is this haunting thought that made me install a cat door. As I could not fathom having to live with the thought that my babies roasted to death.
