Lucky Tortie

If cats have nine lives, a kitty in Missoula, Montana has definitely used one up.

This housecat survived being locked in a cage, thrown off a bridge and then stranded in an icy puddle of river slush. It's unlcear how long the cat was stuck on the ice, but the ordeal ended Tuesday morning when a pair of passers-by spotted the tortie and called for help. Firefighters arrived minutes later, donned wet suits and launched a rescue boat.

Someone had put the animal in a cage, along with a rock weighing about 16 pounds, and tossed it into the Clark Fork River. But instead of landing in the water, it bounced several times on the ice and then became stuck.

Read about Lucky, who bears an uncanny resemblance to my tortie, Kinky, here . The article has a heartwarming end.

Some people are real animals. What the hell? The only good thing about a story like this(besides the miraculous survival) is the inclusion of good people like the firefighter who will be giving it a home.

There ARE animal adoption agencies if people can't handle a pet. Or maybe people are just sick cruel SOBs.

Maybe the person who did that terrible thing would like to take a dip in the river with a rock tied to their ankles.

Some people are horribly cruel! I'm glad the cat survived.

I'd like to see the same done to whoever did that to the poor Lucky (apt name if I ever saw one!).

mcf: I didn't realize I had turned on the comment moderation either. I thought everyone was too busy to post. I resolve never to do that again ;-)

Yes, this story made me hug my tortie. When my daughters saw this cat's photo, they both thought who is that man & why is he holding OUR cat?

There are bad people out there who don't respect life. If you ask me, a taste of their own medicine would be a good thing.
