Toronto rescue!!

Hey everyone, there was a sick, cruel, disturbing story that happend here in Canada.......but it has a happy ending! This story is courtesy of Cable Pulse 24.................

An act of animal cruelty was thwarted just in time when a couple out for a walk heard a cat’s cries and followed it into the Don River. That’s where the animal was tossed to die sometime Saturday April 9th.

The Orange Tabby was found stuffed inside a blue bag.

Ivor Oram and his wife heard the animal’s muffled cries during a weekend stroll.

“It was an unusual sound that sounded like a cat that was afraid or in panic, in distress anyway,†Ivor explained.

Unsure of where the meows were coming from, Ivor followed the sound, which led him knee deep into the fast-flowing nearly frozen River. That’s where he discovered the cat inside the bag completely submerged in water.

“By the time we got to pick up the bag and unzipped it, when I unzipped it the cat was floating immersed under water in the bag so we knew it was basically at the point where it was basically giving up.â€

But the will to survive proved extremely strong in the pesky feline.

“After about 30 seconds or a minute, the cat start to whine and meow a bit so we knew there was life there,†he marvels. “We just didn't know how much longer it had life without help.â€

Hovering near death, the cat was brought to the Humane Society. When he came in, however, his temperature was so low, the veterinarian couldn't even register a reading. But, somehow, the cat managed to fight back.

“If he hadn't been found when he was found and if he hadn't been brought here and we hadn't started all these processes right away, oh, absolutely he would not have survived, not even probably another hour. He was near death,†explained animal worker Lynda Elmy.

Warm blankets and an I.V. helped bring life back to the cat that has now been renamed Moses, and will soon make his home with the people who saved him.

In the meantime, both the Humane Society and police want to find out who was responsible for the callous act.

Heres the actual link to the site where you view the story in video, aswell as see the beautiful kitty as he recovers!!
