Lucky Kitty

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
WENATCHEE, Wash. - One plucky cat is waiting to go home. But no one knows where home is.

The cat is resting up at an animal shelter in Washington state after leaping from a pickup, scampering through traffic, plunging 70 feet into the chilly Columbia River and swimming 600 feet to shore.

Officials at the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society officials say the "ate ravenously" after the ordeal.

Now they're trying to figure out whose cat it is. The gray, long-hair calico has no collar.

Witnesses say the cat came off a pickup truck that was driving across a bridge. It managed to dash through traffic, and humane officials found it cowering in the center of the bridge. But before they could catch it, it leaped over the railing.

They watched the kitty hit the water below, go under, surface, then swim like mad. A man in a kayak helped guide it to shore.

Wow! I hope they checked for a microchip, or will at least publish photos of the cat!

Besides the obvious question of what is some guy doing in a pick up truck with a cat in the back, Thats spending 2 of your lives the hard way. Glad that kitty is ok.

i've been noticing a lot of Cat success and Cat interest stories in the news lately. Like that cat that wound up in France after playing in the wrong cardboard box.
I take this sudden publicity as a good thing.
