    There’s a helicopter hovering overhead, which I can see from my house on 47th. I assume this is why!

    I was just going to ask if that’s what the helicopter was flying over the house for.

      I hope he’s OK. I am checking with SFD to see if they have any more information about the person who was transported for evaluation.

      So your house also? Is he and kitty ok ?

      • Andrea Lockwood May 13, 2019 (7:28 pm)

        No, actually.  We are separated right now and he lives in the downstairs apartment.  Fortunately everyone is okay!!!

      Hey Kersti. This kitten is only 5 weeks old. Not outside yet. But all the cats are ok. Jessica lost a lot. Just about everything. It was a hot crazy fast blaze. Very scary.
