Dog walker saves cat thrown into a dyke from a moving car

A drowning cat was saved after being thrown into a dyke from a moving car.

The long-haired female ginger cat was tossed out of a black Honda into Mill Dyke in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Luckily, a passer-by walking his dog saw the incident and waded into the dyke to pull her out.


Graeme Petty, an RSPCA inspector said:

“Had he not intervened I am sure she would have not survived.

“His heroic actions saved her life.

“For a person to callously throw a neglected cat into water to an almost certain death is absolutely awful.

“There is about 15ft of land before you reach the water – so it seems someone has made a real effort to try and drown her.”

The RSPCA is now looking after the cat – called Honey by the staff.

The centre is trying to trace the owner.

Mr Petty said:

“She is a distinctive looking long-haired ginger cat, aged about two, so I believe someone will know who she belonged to.

“And I would also like to speak to the man who saved Honey as he may have some information that could help us.”
