He’s had a time of it.
From Dublin SPCA
This little cat (we have named George) was rescued last night from teenagers that were trying to throw him into the canal at Inchicore Dublin 8.
A member of the public rang us this morning to say that he had seen three girls and two boys aged approximately thirteen to fifteen egging each other on to drop the cat from the lock into the deepest part of the canal. The man immediately went over and took the cat from the teens and brought it home to safety.
First off we would like to point out that this man although we cannot name him is a hero in our eyes and we are so grateful for his intervention although it would be only right for us to encourage anyone in this situation to call the local Garda station first for advice.
Also if anyone in the area knows who might own this cat please contact us, he is a 1 yr old male Tabby not neutered and very sweet natured. Call us on 014994700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
