At Least It Has A Happy Ending

Cat gets 'Lucky' in rescue on icy river

Thursday, December 29, 2005; Posted: 9:19 a.m. EST (14:19 GMT)


MISSOULA, Montana (AP) -- If cats have nine lives, a kitty in Montana has definitely used one up.

A house cat survived being locked in a cage, thrown off a bridge and then stranded in an icy puddle of river slush.

The ordeal ended Tuesday morning when a pair of passers-by spotted the calico cat while crossing a footbridge and called for help.

Missoula firefighters arrived minutes later, donned wet suits and launched a rescue boat.

Someone had put the animal in a cage, along with a rock weighing about 16 pounds, and tossed it into the Clark Fork River. But instead of landing in the water, it bounced several times on the ice and then became stuck.*

It's unclear how long the cat had been there.

Firefighters took it back to the fire station, dried it off and fed it leftover Christmas turkey and a dish of milk.

"It was really skinny, nothing but skin and bones, and had collar marks where a too-small collar had rubbed the fur off its neck. But it was really friendly," firefighter Philip Keating said.

Firefighter Josh Macrow decided to keep the cat. After his shift, he took it to a veterinarian and then home to his 12-year-old daughter.

"It's the sweetest cat," Macrow said. "It sits on your shoulder when you drive down the road, and it curled up with my black Labs this morning."

Naming the animal was easy, he said.

"We call her Lucky."

* That "someone" needs to be tied down, soaked in gasoline and set afire I have NO patience with animal abusers.

So according to you, it's not ok to abuse an animal, but it is ok to set a human on fire?

I don't like animal abusers either, but that doesn't mean they should be burned alive.

REP!!

I wasn't going to post any more in this thread, but dammit I have to. First: narnar. 3 Cheers to someone with a bit of compassion. Poor kitty indeed! A small trusting cat being shoved into a metal cage and cruelly dumped off a bridge in freezing weather. Yes, indeed! Feed the cat some of that roasted human monster. Poor cat. All of 5 maybe 6 pounds against some...thing weighing 30 times more and having not a clue about what it intends to do...

The more I think about it the sicker I get.
But as I said, at least the story had a happy ending.

I gotta kitty named Kali!

It came to our deck one day and ripped open our garbage bags! So we fed it so it wouldn't rip open the garbage bags. Now it's sitting on my lap. Yup, cutest little kitten you ever did see.
