Deputy saves drowning kitten clinging to oysters under bridge
A crying kitten was clinging to oysters on a piling underneath the Roosevelt Bridge, barely staying afloat. A Martin County Deputy heard the kitten's pleas for help and came to the rescue.
"It's not a typical water rescue, but this one had everything to do with nine lives. The Martin County Sheriff's Marine Unit was called to an area near the Roosevelt Bridge after a good Samaritan called to say they could hear tiny cries coming from the water," Martin County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) wrote on Facebook.
MCSO Marine Deputy Michael Libasci traced the cries and found the tiny black kitten climbing onto some oysters on the piling for dear life. "The kitten was worn out and struggling to stay afloat. Deputy Libasci was able to pull the animal out of the water and get it safely inside the boat."
"Once on-board, the kitten wanted to stay and hang out with our Marine Unit."
He started to explore the boat and relaxed knowing he was finally safe.
The kitten was taken to the Humane Society of the Treasure Coast where he was named Roosevelt after the bridge.
Roosevelt is doing great in his foster home and loves all the attention he's getting.
