When Saad Awais, a man from Pakistan, heard the cries of a cat stuck in a well on his family’s property, he did everything he could to try to get her out. But his efforts were in vain – after all, the well was 110 feet deep! According to reports, the cat had been stuck in the well for almost a year, but Awais only noticed the cat recently. Knowing he couldn’t leave the cat in the well to suffer, he turned to social media to solicit help. He got in touch with Edhi and PAWS (Pakistan Animal Welfare Society) to devise a plan to get the cat out.
This would not be an easy task – just look at that well!
In the meantime, he had his employees send food down to the cat every day to keep her alive.
Eventually, K-Electric joined the team, providing a crane and supervision. With the three forces combined, they worked tirelessly to retrieve this poor kitty. But after what has been referred to as a “mammoth” effort, they finally rescued this darling cat!
“I’m grateful to everyone who helped rescue this cat,” Awais told The Express Tribue. He was particularly grateful for the efforts of the online community that helped Awais rally the troops to save the cat!
According to Talha Ahmed, media manager for PAWS, the cat is in good health and is being taken to the vet. Once she’s recovered, PAWS will either keep her in the shelter or help her find a forever home!
The efforts put forth by all parties involved is absolutely astounding – all to save the life of this precious kitty! If you were inspired by their dedication and perseverance, visit PAWS to learn more about their amazing work!
