A little cat named Gypsy was found trapped between walls in the rubble of her Moore, OK home on Monday, three weeks after the devastating Moore tornado of May 20, 2013 laid waste to her neighborhood.

Petmom Misty Satterlee visited the remains of her house yesterday and, as she has done each time she visits, called out for her missing cat Gypsy. This time, however, Gypsy answered back, leading to her rescue, which was carried out with the help of the Moore Fire Department and Animal Rescue.

The rescuers took down some drywall to find the little cat. Gypsy was small to begin with, and had become very skinny living without sufficient food and water throughout her ordeal. She was taken to the vet, where she stayed overnight getting IV fluids to help restore her back to health.  Gypsy was expected to return home today.

Misty wrote to Moore Oklahoma Tornado Pets Lost & Found at Facebook to share her good news, saying:

“GYPSY!!! – It’s been 3 weeks since the tornado. I stopped back by the house and called out for her, like I’ve done so many times and this time she answered. She was in between the walls. A big thank you to Moore Fire Dept and Moore Animal rescue. They came and tore down the dry wall to get her out. She is now at the emergency vet clinic in Norman getting IV fluids. I get to pick her up in the morning. Thank you so very much to everyone who has helped search for her! Our family is complete again.

“So happy to have our Gypsy today. She will be “home” tomorrow from the vet where she is being given IV fluids. Thank you to everyone who has helped look for my baby.

“She very dehydrated and just skin and bones but she is going to be okay. So so very happy.”
