SAGINAW, Michigan (WNEM) – A stranded cat is safe and dry after being rescued from a wooded island in the Saginaw River.
Elyssa Weber was scrolling Facebook last week when she saw a post about a cat stranded in the Saginaw River.
“Immediately my heart was beating a million miles an hour. I knew I just had to go out, ”said Weber.
After an unsuccessful rescue that night, Weber returned the next day. This time with live traps.
“The next morning we went back to get the cat and Kitty was there! So we strapped him to the front of the kayak and took him inland, ”Weber said.
The Humane Society of Bay County picked the cat up and named it Kayak.
Kayak has since been taken to a nursing home.
“He seems like a stray or unwanted cat. But now he’s wanted and loved, which is a great thing. That is most important to me, ”said Weber.
He is still recovering from his wild adventure. He will stay with his new foster parent until he has enough trust in other people.
“He’s very scared. But he’s starting to warm up. I’m very happy about it, ”said Weber.
