Shelter Dog Helps Rescue a Cat

19999Well, here’s a paw-some story! Leopard, a 6-year-old Shar-Pei at Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter in Ohio, who is recovering from a cancerous tumor, was out for a walk with a volunteer when she laid down on a sewer grate and refused to move.

“Upon closer inspection the volunteer noticed a young grey cat stuck in the sewer,” said Mindy Naticchioni, an administrator at the Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter in Ohio.

While the cat was dehydrated and hungry, she is healthy and is now also staying at the shelter. “Had Leopard not alerted us that something was going ok with the sewer, we may not have known the cat was even in there. Leopard is a hero,” Mindy told

Leopard, the hero dog is still looking for a home. It’s been hard to find the right family for her because she has special needs. Hopefully the right family will hear her story and give her (and maybe her kitty friend!) the perfect forever home.

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
