    Maybe I'm missing some element of this story but it sounds as though you can go back and get a cat but not a laptop "to sustain your livelihood".
    Wouldn't it be at least as important as having a cat to be able to perpetuate your income especially if your home is in danger of being burned down at some stage.

    I wouldn't want firefighters or homeowners to endanger their lives unnecessarily but if it is important to rescue Nemo the goldfish perhaps being able to support a family of human beings would be at least as much of a priority. It doesn't have the emotional appeal of rescuing a stranded dog but may be worth at least as much. Just saying.

    Gee Rob, wonder how the crews are feeling who have been working to save your home and those of your neighbors. I'm guessing that is "really hard". if it is really that hard for you to be without a change of clothes, go buy some new clothes and quit complaining.
    "It's been really hard," said Rob Fairbanks, who lives in the Rockport Estates community with his wife. "We've been in the same work clothes since I don't know when."
