12-Hour Rescue Effort Saves Cat...a toy cat.

When I first read this story I laughed pretty hard. Then once I was done laughing, I felt so proud of all these people. Even though the story is silly and the cat turned out to be a toy, good for all of these dedicated people who spent so much time trying to save an animal. So many people would have heard that noise and walked on by, but these people took time out of their day to save one little kitty they thought needed help.



From the Daily Post - RESCUERS spent 12 hours trying to save a “pregnant cat” from a clothes recycling bin – only to discover it was a squeaky toy.

The alarm was raised on Monday evening when a woman heard a meow sound coming from the recycling bins in Moelfre, Anglesey.With a heavily pregnant cat, Puss-Puss, missing in the village people raced down to the clothes bin to free the animal which continued to meow.But the locks had been tampered with and they were unable to free the “cat” despite trying until 11pm at night with a grinder and calling in the fire service, the RSPCA and bin operators Tyddyn Môn.

They returned to the site in Lligwy Road the next morning and put food into the bin.
With concerns for the pregnant cat growing the bin was transported 18 miles to specialist engineering firm K Owen in Llanrhyddlad.Using a steel saw engineers were eventually able to cut their way into the bin at around 2pm.

Owner Kelvin Owen said: “Once we got into the bin we heard the meow again, it sounded just like a cat and we all started to carefully search the bags. “Then I found a bag of toys and picked out a toy cat, I said ‘it couldn’t be this could it’, it wasn’t making any noise and I asked if I could cut it open to investigate. As I held it it went off, miaow, miaow, mystery solved! The lads were in stitches, it was such a laugh.”

Jasmine Hazelhurst, from Anglesey Pets – part of the Free to a Good Home Anglesey site – said: “I did feel embarrassed when they pulled out the stuffed cat. But I am also proud at the way everyone rallied around to save the ‘cat’. Local people and Tyddyn Môn did so much to save the ‘cat’ and it shows what community spirit there is. We feared finding a dead cat in the clothes bank so to find a stuffed toy was a relief.”

Puss Puss is still missing.
