Long Beach resident Randy Lerner and his cat Maximilian were displaced from their home shortly after Hurricane Sandy hit two weeks ago, but that hasn't kept the two apart.

Lerner has been visitng Max at the North Shore Animal League America's (NSALA) emergency animal rescue center, directly across the street from the Red Cross station where he is currently residing.

NSALA reported that "After two days at his apartment, Randy made the decision to move Max into the emergency animal shelter at Mitchel Field."

According to NSALA website, Lerner and Max, a 5-year-old seal point Siamese, have been through more than just Sandy together:

Randy has faced many challenges in recent years, including a long battle with cancer. Max has been his steadfast companion all along the way. In fact, the last time Randy came back from an overnight stay at the hospital, Max refused to leave his side for over 24 hours.

Lerner told NSALA that he is uncertain as to when he will be able to move back to his Long Beach apartment.
