A black house cat that ran away from an Easter morning fire that displaced six families in Parkesburg was reunited with her family a little over two weeks later, writes Bill Rettew for The Daily Local News

King had been wandering around until she noticed a can of cat food inside a trap near her former home that was devastated by fire. 

“It’s been a stressful two weeks,” said Leonel Salinas, King’s owner and fire survivor. “I never lost faith that I would find her.” 

The reunion with the cat was joyful, and even a few happy tears were shed. King was rescued by April Brade and Mel Keen, who are part of a team that spends hundreds of hours protecting and rescuing cats. 

“We found that something positive came out of the fire,” said Keen.
