Judy Pugh didn't care much about the material things that were destroyed last month. But she was heartbroken over one of her three cats, who hadn't been seen since the storm.
This week in the middle of an interview, Pugh's missing pet walked out of the rubble.
"Come see your mama," said Pugh to her cat Cadie. "Oh God love it. Honey you probably don't weigh two pounds. Oh honey. I have everything I want now. I have all three cats."
Cadie has been with Pugh for ten years. She made it through the tornado, heat and cold without food or water for nearly a month.
The pet lover says now that she has all of her animals safely back, she's ready to move on.
