I thought I would post it here since I am new and telling this story makes me smile.
My Dad is a cop and the station is next to a river in the town I used to live. One day a lady came up and told him and another cop about a kitten in the river.
They went down there and saw the kitten attached to a pole that is used to hold a pier up.
So they find a net and fish her off. From what they could tell, she had been there a while and was almost ready to give up. They think someone probably threw her in.
So, even though he didn't want anymore cats at our house, he couldn't just give this one away.
He brought it home and took care of it and then gave it to me.
Here are a few pictures of her.
There was someone from the newspaper down there who took a picture before they got her out. It's a small town, so this was one of the main stories.
Here she is a few days after she was rescued.
And here she is, healthy and insane, a little over a year later...
I think she was a model in a past life, because she loves to pose for pictures.
