Reunited! 78 days later

Meet Jack … thanks to Joni Crowe, he’s now enjoying the company of his people!

Jack’s family lost their home in the April 27th tornadoes that tore through the state of Alabama. Efforts to recover their belongings were fruitless; even their furniture was never found. Although Jack was inside the house when the storms hit, everyone assumed he was dead.

Joni Crowe set up a feeding station across the street from the home, which is now a mere concrete driveway. Seventy-eight days after the tornadoes struck, there was Jack – waiting for Crowe to replenish the food and water!

“I had never even met Jack and he ran to me and started purring and meowing,” she said. “After a good meal, we called [the family] with the good news.”

First up on the agenda was a visit to the veterinarian for a check-up. The owner’s son, Jimmy, kept the news a secret from his dad. He picked Jack up from the vet, took him home, and let him out in the house where his dad was reading the newspaper.

According to Crowe, Jack walked straight over to the dad and jumped in his lap. He was so excited that he cried; he just couldn’t believe Jack was home!

The family had two more cats in addition to Jack. His sister, Kitty Kat, was found last month, but his other sister, Blackie, is yet to be found. The family is asking for prayers that she will find her way home as well.

  1. With all the awful news surrounding us every day, this kind of news makes me just so happy! Congratulations Jack, for finding your humans, and I hope and pray Blackie finds her way home soon!

  2. So amazing brought tears to my eyes. Joni Crowe thanks for caring..God bless all..

  3. This is so sweet, makes my heart melt! I love cats! They are so smart. I hope Blackie shows up as well!

  4. ohhhh…. how very, very, very wonderful!!! and I know Blackie will be home very soon too!!! Maybe she was hiding, watching to see what happened to Jack… when he approached humans… I still get very sick thinking about all of the animals that have been taken out of state, without giving humans and critters all enough time to figure out which way is up!!! I am saying lots & lots of prayers for this family and their pets… as well as for ALL of the families affected by storms and prayers for all of the critters

  8. So glad Jack came home! Praying that Blackie will, too. I’m still loking for my cat, Kate. We lost our home, but I keep laving food and water for Kate every day. Two other tornado kitties are staying there and enjoying the food. Please pray for Kate as I pray for Blackie. Also hoping to fin the owners of the little white female and the gray and black striped male I call SNow WHite and Prince Storm.

  9. Hi Becky, we sure hope that Kate returns to your arms very soon! You guys are in our thoughts and prayers.
