It wasn't just people who had to evacuate from their homes, so did pets. But some were in the process of finding a forever home when the hurricane hit, and now they are looking for one here in Nashville.
They don't ask for much, just love and nourishment.
Felines on board the Cat Mobile are looking for a new place to call home.
"They're not like dogs where you can put them on a leash and bring them that way. It's a great way to get out into the community and get some visibility for our cats," said Kelly Patton, of Nashville Cat Rescue.
Patton said some of the cats are quite resilient.
"They were evacuated early this week, and they are now safe from the storm, Hurricane Florence," she said.
Trapper is one feline who escaped Florence with all nine lives. Now she's hoping to spend them at a new home in Nashville.
"They're all a little bit shy and scared right now because they've been through so much, but they're doing really well," said Patton.
