Storm Center 7 meteorologist rescues kitten from tornado rubble

A kitten rescued from tornado rubble by a Storm Center 7 meteorologist has been reunited with its owners.

Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Rich Wirdzek heard the kitten's meows as he was surveying tornado damage in Cedarville. He found the kitten and pulled it from the debris. The kitten was placed in a jacket and was kept warm in a News Center 7 live truck.

The kitten survived a tornado that destroyed two homes and a barn owned by the Dobbins family at Weimer and Barber roads in Cedarville. The Dobbins family says the kitten was one of several born in their barn recently.
