It is Caturday, and the human will be around for most of the day today. He also told me, Jacey, and Marley that another human will come here to take moving pictures for a video about The Cat Cafe. This will help find homes for some of our fellow felines, he promises. And we will hold him to that promise.
The human has good company when it comes to cat rescues and finding homes for adoptable cats. One human in Florida did an amazing thing to help with a cat rescue.
This human heard purring coming from his parked truck, so he put some noms by the truck and set up a camera by the noms. He left the truck parked overnight, and the next morning, the noms were gone but there was nothing on camera.
Confused, he decided to go fishing to clear his head. When he got to his fishing spot, he heard the purring again. At this point, he decided he needed to see what was going on. Without any hesitation, he cut open the sheet metal on his truck, and he saw a tiny little kitten in there.
Many cat rescues involve dedicated humans, but how many humans would be willing to cut into their truck to get a cat out? For this human, who has two canines and a feline at home and who has taken many stray kittens to the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, there was never a question about doing it.
He went to the shelter, and told them about the kitten that was stuck in his truck. And after three humans at the shelter worked on it, the feline, who was named Megan, was freed from the truck.
The human who started this amazing cat rescue was invited back to the shelter a week later, and the feline who he saved hopped into his arms and started purring. “It was almost telling me, ‘thank you for saving my life,'” he said. And he did, because Megan now has a home where two teenage girls who will take care of her.
If this cat rescue story ended there, it would be a happy one, but other humans made it even better. The human who saved Megan does not have many green paper things, and he could not repair his truck. He did not care, because he was more concerned about saving the cat than about his truck.
But when this amazing cat rescue was shared by the shelter on its Facebook page, many humans wanted to help pay for the repairs to the truck! Since then, a fund has been set up to pay for the repairs and any extra money will go to the shelter.
Furiends, every time I hear about the cruel things some humans do, it makes me sad. But then I hear stories like this, and it makes me want to go give sandpaper kisses to the human.
