‘Miracle’ Kitten, Named Buoy, Is Rescued From Mississippi River

This kitten’s will to survive is actually mightier than the Mighty Mississippi.

Affectionately and appropriately named Buoy, the 3-month-old kitten now has a brand new chance at life thanks to her rescuer and the veterinarians at the Louisiana SPCA.

Back on Feb. 21, a construction worker discovered Buoy floating in the river under the Crescent City Connection.

The kitten was breathing, though barely, and rushed to the Louisiana SPCA. Buoy had a fractured femur and her tail was suffering from severe hypothermia, and so, veterinarians were forced to amputate her tail and leg.

“Buoy is a miracle kitten!” Louisiana SPCA CEO Ana Zorrilla states. “Talk about being at the right place at the right time. If her rescuer hadn’t spotted her, the poor kitten would never have survived. We didn’t think she would make it through the night but she surprised us all. Over the last few weeks, Buoy has made an amazing recovery”!
