A True Story ofNick and Bugs
On August 27 in Nick’s room. Nick took care of him.th Nick Hebert and his family had to evacuate from their home in New Orleans because Hurricane Katrina was headed their way. Hurricane Katrina hit on August 29th.
Hurricane Katrina was very powerful. Flood waters caused the levees to break in New Orleans. The water went almost to the ceiling in Nick and Bugs’ house.
Nick and his family were all very, very sad. They thought Bugs had drowned with all the water in their house. There was water everywhere!
Nick and his twin sister Emily started at Erath Middle because they could not return home. Nick still missed Bugs very much and thought about him often.
On Thursday, September 22, 2005, another Hurricane was headed toward Louisiana. So the schools dismissed early and Nick’s family evacuated again. This was Hurricane Rita.
Everyone was now worried about Hurricane Rita flooding Erath and Vermilion Parish. Nick missed Bugs even more. Even though she was going to hit Texas, people knew the area would be flooded.
On October 6, school started again. Nick and his sister had the same teachers, but they were in a different school again. Nick still thought of Bugs a lot and missed him.
Nick’s mom started to look for Bugs. Then she suddenly saw him move. Bugs was still alive! She picked him up and made Bugs feel safe. Bugs was still scared about the storm. Bugs had stayed safe in his cage for 42 days!
Nick’s mom and dad gave him some safe water. Then they realized that the plastic bottom of Bugs’ cage helped him float in the flooded water and saved his life.
They stopped at Burger King and a lady who worked there, gave Bugs free lettuce. Then Nick’s Mom and Dad brought Bugs to Erath for Nick to hold him again. Nick was so excited and happy to hold his rabbit again.
