8 Lives Left: Cat Pulled Alive From Rubble 5 Days After Italy Earthquake
The cat named Gigia was found dehydrated but is expected to make it.
A never-say-die cat has been pulled from debris alive, five days after a devastating earthquake rocked central Italy, killing nearly 300 people.
It is nothing short of a miracle that the cat, named Gigia, survived the catastrophe. The dehydrated feline was discovered by firefighters.
The firefighters took bottles of water to give Gigia something to drink.
Video of the incident was posted on Facebook by the country’s fire department — Vigili del Fuoco.
In the video, one woman, in typical Italian spirit, can be heard offering to make food for the sick cat.
Members of ENPA, Ente Nazionale Protezione Animali — the Italian equivalent of the ASPCA — have been caring for Gigia. She, along with other animals that were found in the rubble, including a pregnant cow, are being cared for at a makeshift veterinary hospital in the area.
Gigia is expected to survive.
