Orange County deputies responded to the scene after lifeguards spotted a 40-foot boat taking on water. Then deputies discovered a cat inside the sinking boat.
Deputies heard a cry for help, but it wasn’t from a human. They continued to hear a cat crying, but they couldn’t find the cat on the boat.
The boat continued to sink as the deputies tried to find the distressed cat. Unable to find the cat, they jumped back onto their boat, but then 20 seconds later, they looked in the boat and saw the orange and white cat swimming around inside the cabin.
Deputies jumped back on the boat, reached into the cabin, and grabbed the swimming cat by the tail and pulled him out.
The owner, who was not on the boat during the incident, was extremely happy that his cat, Fido, was rescued.
