KENAI, Alaska (AP) — A Florida woman's love for her cat is leading her to extend her vacation in Alaska.

A 10-pound black and white male cat named Tucker disappeared after Robin Wiesneth, 50, of Miramar Beach and her husband, Charles, were involved in a fatal traffic crash Aug. 5 on the Kenai (KEE'-neye) Spur Highway.

A pickup truck with two people crossed the highway centerline and crashed into the Weisneths' motorhome. Both people in the truck died. The Weisneths suffered minor injuries.

The Peninsula Clarion, a Kenai newspaper, reports (http://bit.ly/1HGU29k) Tucker was on Robin Weisneth's lap in a small cat bed when the crash occurred.
