There was some good news amid the search for the dead in Surfside. A cat named Binx, who had lived on the ninth floor of the collapsed building, was found alive and was returned to his family.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Beyond the loss of human life in a building collapse in Florida, there was the loss of pets. A survivor told NPR she agonized over leaving a cat behind. But we can now report one other cat survived, Binx. A searcher found the cat roaming the site. Animal rescue volunteers used flyers and social media posts to find Binx's family. And Taylor Gonzalez has now embraced the cat, saying it's been a very long journey. It's MORNING EDITION.
