Standing on the ruins of the building, I thought I heard a ‘meow’ and though I thought it was some hallucination, I heard my cat’s name and then heard meowing again, reports Sonny ‘Hoot’ Gibson. The sounds came from under the collapsed building. Born Gibson hope he was Madix’s office cat, black with yellow eyes, he hadn’t seen since the building collapsed.Madix was a favorite of his rental car clients.

Gibson and several people searched under the rubble, and Madix actually escaped from the hole under the building.

It was such a great feeling to be in my arms again, said Gibson.

“I have no idea how anyone or anyone could have survived the hurricane itself, let alone the devastation it caused,” the owner commented. “If cats had nine lives, Madix must have used eight of them to survive those nine days in the ruins,” he said.

He added that the story of the cat, which gained extraordinary popularity in the city, gave residents a boost of positive emotions. “It is a blessing for people to realize how great things can come out of terrible situations. If he lifts the spirits of only one person, then it means Madix has achieved his goal on this planet,” he emphasized.
