— The pet owner of a cat that was killed in a crash in Tallahasse, Fla., is getting a new pet.
Tara Wirth was at the hospital with her husband when the accident happened.
“I said, ‘Is this a joke?’ because we knew that cat was gone,” Wirth told the Florida Today Network on Thursday.
“It’s going to be a long time.”
The Wirths say they have a cat named Turo Car Rentals, which they brought from South Florida to help out in the hospital.
The accident happened in January.
Wirth said she was looking forward to getting her cat back.
She was driving with her boyfriend when she said a car crashed into her, killing the cat.
But now, she’s getting a brand new cat, and the cat she brought back to the hospital, named Tiro, has been adopted.
Wirth has since got her new cat named Mimi, and she says she’s going on a new vacation.
Mimi is now staying at the Wirth’s home.
