Miss Kitty: The Conclusion
Posted by Jill | 1:38 PM

Some of you may remember me blogging on the story of Miss Kitty, the heroic cat who saved the life of her owner, Bill Harris, as the flood waters rose in his Slidell, Mississippi home during Hurricane Katrina. (Previous entries here, here, here, here, and here).

I'd like to be able to say that Harris and his cat lived happily ever after, but alas, Harris died last week from a recurrence of the gastrointestinal bleeding that took him from a Red Cross shelter to a hospital in September, where he was reunited with Miss Kitty.

Miss Kitty, who at age 17 is no spring chicken herself, will be moving to her new home in Canada with Donna Wackerbauer, one of the animal rescuers who found her.

Noah's Wish is working on a way to commemorate Bill Harris and Miss Kitty in Slidell.

The story of this amazing cat should put to rest the idea that only dogs have the heart to save the lives of their owners.
