Emotional moment owner is reunited with cat after devastating Camp Fire

This woman feared she would never see her cat again after being forced to leave him behind as Camp Fire erupted, but thanks to the help of volunteer and rescue crews, was happily reunited with him days after.

"When the fire broke out, the entire house behind us was engulfed in flames," Laci Ping recalled of November 8, the night the fire started.

When Ping was loading her Mason's cage into the car, he slipped through the bars and ended up escaping.

"The firefighters were yelling at us, telling us we had to leave now," Ping said. "Leaving the cat behind was one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make."

Thankfully, Ping found that Mason was being sheltered at the veterinary school at UC Davis some days after, where he was receiving vaccinations and being treated for his burns. This video shows the emotional reunion.

"I shall get him back soon fully recovered! I miss him so much and can't wait to fall asleep with him in my arms!" Ping told Newsflare.
