Nashville explosion: Cat lost in aftermath of bombing reunited with owner

RV explosion causes fire in downtown Nashville, officials say

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After nearly a week of being missing after the Nashville explosion, a cat has been reunited with its owner. And frankly, Martin did not what know all the fuss was about.

The feline’s relieved owner, Malory Luciane, was forced to evacuate her apartment in downtown Nashville after a recreational vehicle exploded Christmas morning in the Tennessee city, The Tennessean reported.

She was unable to find her cat, Martin, and finally left the area with her cellphone, the clothes she was wearing and Ralph, her 6-year-old Goldendoodle, the newspaper reported.

Luciane was unable to return to her apartment, but FBI agents assured her they would look for the cat, WSMV reported.

Sometime during the next few days, agents told Luciane they had spotted a cat, The Tennessean reported. Thursday morning, Luciane heard that Martin had been found -- slightly dirty, but unhurt.

“He was asleep in my closet,” Luciane told the newspaper. “He just thought it was another day, I think.”

The cat did not go quietly with a Metro Nashville Police Department officer, preferring to stay with its stash of food, WSMV reported.

However, Luciane was happy to see Martin again.

“I don’t know how to thank these people enough,” Luciane told The Tennessean. “It’s so comforting knowing people in this city are so great.”

Luciane said Martin was now busy wandering around her friend’s home and is interacting with Ralph, the newspaper reported. She added that the cat would get all the canned food and cat treats he wants.
