After the massive fire in a Jeffersonville apartment complex Thursday, out of the rubble came Miracle.

IMG 2252Jeffersonville Firefighters were told a kitten was missing, but with both her parents deceased from smoke inhalation, it seemed unlikely a 2 week old kitten would survive. But the next day at 3 pm, a Firefighter found him under a pile of ashes – alive.
Sara Green, Director of J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter received the call that they had found the missing kitten. Miracle was rushed to Eastside Animal Hospital where he was given oxygen.

The kitten continues to improve. Sara takes care of him and feeds him around the clock. She will be taking care of Miracle indefinitely until they are either able contact the owner or put him up for adoption.
She reports he is eating well and getting stronger. Today, for the first time, Miracle opened his eyes.
