Rescuers Save A Cat Floating In Her Litterbox During Heavy Floods


Because of excessive rainfall, a lot of areas in Missouri have been ravaged by flood waters. The floods not only affected the people, but also the animals that reside in the area. Thankfully, rescue organizations like the Humane Society of Missouri have been saving animals that are affected by the flood.

Rescuers of the Humane Society of Missouri passed by a flooded trailer in Fenton Missoure, and they were surpised to see a cat floating in the flood in her litterbox. Investigators Brian Thomas and Patience Scanlon brought the kitty to safety. Watch the rescue video below!

Thanks to these amazing people, Tortie the cat is saved. And it’s not just Tortie that they rescued, they also rescued four other cats, and the Humane Society of Missouri is providing emergency shelter for the animals whose families were displaced by the flooding.
