Default cat and human reunited after the Grenfell fire

I can sort of understand this - when we had a serious fire and
had to get out because of the smoke, it took nearly a week before
we saw our four cats again. They were all huddled behind the
fridge. But the Grenfell fire was vastly worse.

I'm very glad she was reunited with her cat! Sounds like she (and
likely others) are having a difficult time finding permanent residences
in the aftermath of the fire. I don't pretend to know how the 'council
system' of obtaining flats works.

The local councils have properties to rent out but not enough really for
all who need them. It's good to get a council property if you need to rent
as you usually have more rights and a better rent than privately owned
properties. To have to rehouse the number of people made homeless by the
fire was always going to be a problem. I wouldn't think that any council
would have that number of homes ready for new tenants. under normal
circumstances people go on a waiting list for a home, they are given
points for how needful they are. For instance a 17 year old living with
parents where there is no abuse or gross overcrowding would get few points
but a family who have nowhere to live would get a lot and be more likely
to be at the top of the list. With the best will in the world, it would
take time to get homes for that number so suddenly.

i hope that explains it a bit.
