Cat survives flood waters than more than a month of muck and debris after owner was killed in Colorado Flood water

Posted: Updated:

In terms of key personalities in Jamestown, no personality was stronger than Joey Howlett's.

He was the heart and soul of the community. Everyone loved him. Howlett was killed in September, when flood waters poured in to Jamestown. He was inside his home at the time when a mudslide gushed down the mountain behind his property.

"It was kind of sloshing back and forth down the canyon and just boom! Right in to his bedroom," said Anne Breiler, a friend of Howlett's who lives in Jamestown.

Howlett was the only one home at the time, aside from his cat, Shadow. For the better part of 13 years, Shadow was Howlett's best friend. The pair were similar.

"She's just like Joey. He was a love sponge. But quite independent," Breiler said.
