‘Against all odds’: Cat rescued from ledge of highway overpass

They say cats have nine lives, due to their ability to defy the odds and survive even the most dangerous incidents. That’s what one story proves, after a cat was rescued “against all odds” after becoming stuck on a ledge above a busy interstate.

According to a Facebook post from the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services, Animal Care Officer Tutak and Animal Care Sergeant Flores responded to a call about a cat trapped on an interstate overpass with no possible escape.

Arriving on the scene, they found the “stunt devil” cat lying on the edge of the overpass, and had to be careful not to scare the cat or he might jump from the precarious position.

The cat reportedly did not trust the officers at first, but warmed up to them once he realised they were there to help, and let them pick him up.

The cat, now named “Bridges”, was transported to the Animal Emergency Room. According to the Facebook post, Bridges was “a bit ravenous” when they offered him food and water, and had an upper respiratory infection, but was otherwise in good health.

After being checked out and cleared for any medical concerns, he was transported back to Animal Care Services for further love and care.

“He is now resting up and feeling more himself in our adoptable cat building” ACS wrote.

The department said that Bridges is now up for adoption. They also thanked Officer Turak and Sergeant Flores for saving the cat’s life
