DUBLIN FIREFIGHTERS HAVE rescued a cat from drowning after it got into difficulty on the banks of the Liffey this afternoon.

Members of the Dublin Fire Brigade trained as rescue swimmers went out on a boat to save the cat, who was stranded out near Burgh Quay.

You can watch filmed footage of the rescue here:

The Tara Street firefighters were able to place what they called “the soggy moggy” into a pet carrier and pass the “feisty feline” over to the care of DSCPA.

The black and white beauty doesn’t look too happy, but what cat would be after being submerged in water?

Good thing the well-known cat-rescuers, aka firefighters, were on hand to pluck the cat from harm’s way (although this time it wasn’t from a tree).
