A wet, salty cat was found on a New York island. Did this feline actually swim over from New Jersey? The mystery surround this calico cat's origin is interesting.
Just last week, the white, orange, and black kitty arrived on Governors Island in New York. The security guards who found the salty cat report that its hair was matted and covered with seaweed in addition to being caked with salt.
While they can't be sure, they believe that the calico cat actually swam to the island after being caught in New Jersey's recent massive rains. It is amazing if this is the case because the cat may have swam at least a mile, and for a creature that notoriously dislikes water and swimming, it is quite a feat.
There is probably an owner somewhere who is missing this strong feline quite badly. Hopefully the owner of the salty will read about this amazing story of survival and reach out to the Governors Island to reunite with his or her pet.
