REDDING, Calif. - There's a very happy ending to report in the story of a kitten burned in the Carr Fire in Redding.

Her image was widely shared on social media when she was found burned, coming out of the ashes. 

Now, she has a new home and a new name: Small Fry.

She was rescued by firefighters and nursed back to health by the Haven Humane society.

Two months and a couple of weeks later, she is now the newest family member of the Woodcox family in Chico. Katrina Woodcox is the Executive Director of the Butte Humane Society.

The "before" and "after" pictures show the huge difference that care and love have made in Small Fry's life. 

She lost her ear flaps, and the toes on her paws burned together, but her hair has grown back and the burns have healed. Today she is happy and healthy.

It's just about as hot today as it was yesterday... right on track for late June. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are still possible, but probably not as numerous as yesterday up north. We're on the cusp of a big change, however.
