|Nelson loved being included in my blog posts|
We were very lucky that no one was hurt, but unfortunately we lost my beloved cat Nelson (pictured above) due to smoke inhalation... The firefighters were very helpful in trying to find him, but it was just too smoky. My fat cat, Cuddles, was one lucky kitty, though. She was in the basement at the time and trapped herself in my brother's bedroom, but the firefighters found her and were able to pull her out of the house. She was in a daze from inhaling so much smoke, and her eyes looked a bit burnt, but I sat outside in the rain with her, attempting to calm her down while holding an oxygen mask over her face for about an hour. She spent the night at the emergency vet clinic, and is now doing great (she's actually curled up next to me, purring as I type ^.^ )

Having never experienced a house fire before, my family and I assumed that we could be back in our house as soon as the fire marshall deemed it "not on fire". In reality, there are major restoration and recovery measures that need to be done, and we will not be able to go home for about 5 months.
