family spots tiny creature

It was a lovely day in Beaufort County, South Carolina and Robert and Dee Gecy were taking a walk near the McTeer Bridge.

The couple noticed something out of the ordinary and went to take a closer look – but they need to get their boat to do it!

Do you see what they saw?

It is a tiny creature hanging on for dear life!

I can’t imagine what made them even notice something so small – but what kind of animal is it?

Robert and Dee carefully navigated their boat closer and closer.

Finally they realized what the animal was – a kitten!

The kitten couldn’t have been more than a few weeks old! How in the world did it end up there?!

Robert told the Beaufort Gazette that he and Dee were shocked!

They both knew that they had to hurry before the tiny creature slipped into the water, where it would be much harder to rescue it.

Robert got the boat as close to the wall as he could, and Dee had the camera rolling.

The tide made it hard for them to get close enough to reach out and grab the cat.

Robert didn’t give up, and Dee shouted out words of encouragement to the kitten.

Finally, Robert got the boat in the right position, and they pulled the kitten off the wall! The veterinarian gave the kitten an exam and found no injuries!

Robert and Dee took the kitten home with them!

Dee believes he was thrown off the bridge – how else would he have ended up on that wall?
