Beyond simply the cat’s safety, this was also a wider public concern. Live electric wires near the cat meant that she could be injured, and possibly trigger additional damage as well. A few days later, though, The Volunteers of the Valencia County Animal Shelter in Los Lunas, located about 10 miles north up the 314, posted photos of the poor kitty to their Facebook page. The matter soon became a community cause, with local fire stations commenting with ideas and support and a rescue team eventually dispatched to the scene.
Firefighters arrived and were able to successfully retrieve the animal, and local citizen Vanessa Alexander documented the rescue. The unnamed cat was brought to the shelter to check for a microchip, to no avail, and is presently recovering the ordeal and seeking adoption.
Anyone interested in caring for a new adventurous roommate can follow the rescued kitty’s progress on Facebook, as she awaits her forever family at the Valencia County Animal Shelter. The high-flying stunt-cat is available for adoption as early as December 12, so interested parties should contact the shelter and follow her story on Facebook.
