Man Saves Kitten From Being Swept Away In Floodwaters

Published: October 26, 2021 at 04:54 PM Author: Penny Eims



When a so-called “bomb cyclone” hit the Pacific Northwest over the weekend, a feral kitten almost didn’t survive after being caught up in floodwaters in northern California. But a good Samaritan was in the right place, at the right time, to save the kitten from being swept away.

As reported by Good Day Sacramento, Skip Campbell was with his wife on Sunday when they saw a small, gray kitten struggling in the rushing water near the Cottage Park Arden Arcade area of Sacramento.

Campbell rushed in to save the kitten, who nearly slipped beneath the water; he told the news agency:

“It started going under and just before I got it it was down a little bit low and I was able to bring it up and I just held it out here so I wouldn’t get bit or scratched,”

The water-logged kitten was dried off and warmed up and it should have a new home soon. The Campbells have said that many of their neighbors expressed interest in giving the little survivor a home.
