In a scene straight out of a movie, (or at least an after school special), two 11-year-old boys heroically rescued a young kitten who they found floating down the Leeds Liverpool Canal while tied into a pink basket.
The nine-week-old cat, now named Moses (or "Mo" for short), was heading towards a certain death as the container started to fill up with water. Fortunately, the boys spotted her cruising by, and sprang into action. Mo is now safe at the Craven and Upper Wharfedale RSPCA, where she will be available for adoption after recovering from her ordeal.
Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact the RSPCA. Check out more pics of the kitty in the basket here.
