Animal survivors of the California fires

The wildfires that ripped through communities in Northern and Southern California this week have left heartbreaking images of eviscerated neighborhoods and coroners searching for human remains.

There have also been inspiring stories, including those of animals being rescued from the blazes. The front page of Wednesday’s Sacramento Bee featured a reporter’s first-hand account of returning London, a calico cat, to her overjoyed owner.

Here are more of the rescued cats, dogs and other critters. (Yahoo News)
