When wildfires raged through Laura Ringenberger’s Napa neighborhood in October 2017, she was forced to flee her house with her family. Before they left, she went into her backyard to get her primarily outdoors cat, Kitty Kitty Star. She looked all around, but she couldn’t find the cat anywhere.
“I called for her for about 20 minutes but couldn’t find her. I worried that we would never see her again,” Ringenberger told.
As the fires got closer to Ringenberger’s neighborhood, she and her family had to leave before the situation got deadly. Devastated, Ringenberger and her family evacuated, hoping that they would see their cat again.
Unfortunately, Ringenberger’s house was destroyed in the fire. Ringenberger also worried that her beloved cat didn’t survive the fire. Ringenberger desperately wanted to know if her cat was alive. So as soon as it was safe to return her neighborhood, she flagged down an ABC 10 News reporter who was covering the Napa fire. She asked him to take her to her house.
