A NASA photo (above) from March 12th shows Cat Island above the water level (red arrow)! This, along with a recent report suggesting that the island may have been spared the worst of the tsunami’s wrath, are hopeful signs. See pet captain’s cat blog for details.
As this photo (original source unknown) makes clear, rescue efforts are in full swing—donations are badly needed! More information at pet captain.
