The heart-wrenching tale of one man rescued from Florence and his cat named ‘Survivor’


As the remnants of what was once Hurricane Florence continues spinning inland, dropping massive amounts of rain and causing damage and widespread flooding, stories of survival are beginning to emerge from the Carolina coast. Including that of a kitten who is literally a “Survivor.”

It all began with this photo from Charlotte Observer reporter Andrew Carter on Friday evening, showing Robert Simmons, Jr. of New Bern, North Carolina being rescued with his kitten. 

The kitten’s name? “Survivor.”

Meet Robert Simmons. Was stuck in his house since last night, when floodwaters began to rise in New Bern. A boat came and rescued him just now. He was sad to leave his father but left with his kitten hugging his neck. Cat’s name: Survivor, Simmons said#HurricaneFlorence2018
