Save the cats as well as their owner

Torrential rains on Saturday caused severe flooding on the plains in and around Calgary, flooding thousands of homes and stranding people in campgrounds. One columnist for the Calgary Herald quoted a rescue worker "You can't cure stupid" -- he was upset that people ignored repeated warnings to evacuate.

This photo in the Herald will probably win prizes:

Paul Tarjan and his cats, in pet carriers, are lifted by helicopter near Bottrel after the Dogpound Creek overflowed its banks.

Look carefully: you can count three cat carriers.

I wonder how many animal lovers will think they should've saved the cats first...
