Normally, the phrase "Judy's shaggy friend of ten years came out of nowhere" would be terrifying, but in this instance it heralds an adorable reunion between said shaggy friend (a cat named Cadie) and Judy, a woman whose house was ripped apart by a tornado. (If Judy's reaction causes you to have a little moistness in the eye area, just remind yourself that the reporter did not close the kitchen cabinet after he put the glass back in, and you'll be back to your old angry self in no time!)

Let's play a morning drinking game: grab your coffee (or tea or whatever you like), and go look at these photos of cats sitting in tiny, cat-sized furniture. Simply take a sip of your wake-up juice every time you see a cat in one of the photos.
