Even when humans aren’t trying to kill animals… Life’s troubles sometimes drag us to the bottom, and it happens – in the truest sense of the word. On a beautiful sunny afternoon, Megan Eastaugf was feeding her horses in Adelaide, Australia, and was thinking about an upcoming dinner. But some strange sounds caused Megan to pause what she was doing.
Not far from the river, there seems to be a sound coming from the water. Seems to have to take a boat out there, and that’s it! But Megan went ashore and saw a cat on the water. The poor cat meowed and did not leave the place, no matter how many times Megan called out to it. The kitten (it is no more than 6 months old) stubbornly does not want to leave the place, and the girl does not understand why!
Until she stood somewhere else and saw something terrible. The kitten wasn’t just sitting still – it was trying to get to the surface, it was tied to some weird cable. Megan panicked, because despair was evident in the poor kitten’s eyes, and it was clear that the animal wouldn’t last long if it remained in the river forever. But it wasn’t easy to get to it – the river was very deep and someone else might have to come to the rescue.
Jessica didn’t hesitate for a second. Luckily, Megan’s friend, Jessica Searle, came to see what was going on after hearing a cry for help. The brave girl, without a second of hesitation, stepped into a deep river and approached the kitten in distress. After rescuing the cat with a heavy object strapped to it, Jessica rushed to the shore and brought the cat to safety, while pulling out a strange thing that was strapped to the cat’s body in a hurry with purpose.
What they saw turned out to be even worse than what they saw at first. The cat was tied with a rope from an electric saw – the poor cat was tied with this rope and thrown into the river to use the electric saw as a load heavy enough to drag the cat into a deep river and not escape from death.
But luckily, the cat turned out to be so tenacious, Megan and Jessica were shocked after taking the cat to the veterinary clinic. At the scene, they said the cat did not have any chips attached to it, and could not identify the owner.
However, parts of the kitten’s fur, whiskers, and even eyelashes were ripped off, suggesting that its “owner” is crazy to treat it like that. The local animal welfare organization promises that they will conduct an investigation to find the person who tortured the poor cat and will surely pay the price for this cruel act.
The cat is fine now and will stay at the vet for care, and monitoring for a few more days – it’s named Splash, it lives with Jessica and is happy to be with her. The cat’s life is safe now – no one will ever be able to mistreat it! Splash’s life here is entirely bright and peaceful!
