Cat Survives Flood by Floating in Litter Box

An unlikely flotation device saved one cat in a Missouri flood.

A lowly cat box rose to the occasion to save this cat.

As flooding ripped through Missouri, placing the area in a state of emergency, one Fenton feline managed to survive the deadly wreckage by hunkering down in the most unlikely of objects: a litter box.

Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) rescue workers were boating through the flooded area on Dec. 31, 2015, when they heard the cries of a cat. Making their way to an immersed trailer, HSMO Disaster Response Team investigators Patience Scanlon and Brian Thomas peeked through the window of the trailer, spotting a tortoiseshell female cat floating on an unidentifiable object.

After carefully breaking the window, rescuers were able to apprehend the cat, and identify her makeshift flotation device as a litter box. She has since been reunited with her family.

Watch the entire harrowing rescue above. Clearly you’ll never look at a litter box the same way again, right? Donate to displaced animals currently in the care of HSMO here.
