A Still Flyin Charters ship was leaving Orange Beach for a routine day cruise on the Perdido Pass when it came across a tragic scenario.
They witnessed what they initially believed to be a sea turtle as the boat traveled through the Perdido Pass, which joins the waterways between Perdido Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. But as they looked more closely, they saw that the kitten was actually drowning. To sаvе it, the crew turned the boat around.
Owner of the sailing business Captain Steve Crews later remarked that the man was having trouble staying awake.
The crew moved immediately to help the frightened animal. Crews claims that while they searched for a means to transfer the drowning kitty into the boat without further distressing him, he kept meowing nonstop.
The crew cleaned the wet kitten off once he was secured on board and consoled him as they made their way back to land. The spectacular rеscuе was captured in a number of photographs, which were later released by the company on their official Facebook page.
Our day’s catch,” the team announced. We caught him in the Gulf of Mexico, just outside the pass.
The crew will no longer be able to know for sure how the cat got so far out to sea. “The poor animal was sucked out by the tide,” they reasoned.
It became apparent that the cat was a young orange male once it dried out and calmed down a little. There was no way to check his age, but based on the images the business placed online, the kitten couldn’t have been older than a few months.
This rеscuе story, which may have ended tragically, nevertheless, had a relatively pleasant resolution. In accordance with the company’s publication, one of its sailors attempted to permanently rehome the kitten but was unable.
As a result, Crews and his family are caring for him. According to Crews, the animal is still uneasy but will take food and water from him and his wife. He also fears that people may refer to him as “Lucky” or “Sharkbite.”
