In 1964, my parents' house in Chicago had a fire on a night of a huge snowstorm, 3'! The fire department had a hard time getting there because side street were not plowed, especially not at 3 AM. They had 13 cats, and I had just moved back with my two cats because I couldn't afford my apartment

We had a house fire in 2007. I threw a couple of cats out the back door before running out the front myself. Those cats actually came back in the house! We were lucky. The fire department put the fire out before the floor combusted. (The fire started in the basement underneath us.) All the

I don't even want to think about something like that happening. It would be so hard to be alive and my babies dead. Just thinking about it gives me shivers. I would go back in until all were out. I have a plan, carriers for all 7 and I have an Astro van which will easily hold all of us. I
