 Six days after the devastating earthquake in Central Italy, a cat named Gioia – Italian for Joy – was rescued from underneath the rubble of a collapsed building in the city of Amatrice and was then returned to her owners in good health.

A video that was broadcast in the Italian media shows a firefighter rescuing a cat and giving her water. Since the earthquake Daniela, Gioia’s owner, has remained close to her home and has been begging the firefighters: “Find my cat. She is all I have left. My home has been destroyed and I have lost everything.”
