Netizens Praise Kind Malaysians For Saving Stray Cats During Flood In Johor

Providing assistance and aid to humans is obviously the priority in disaster situations, but as humans, we can never leave our furry friends to fend for themselves.

Many Malaysians have taken to social media to share their effort in helping stray cats who had no way to save themselves during the flood.

Non-stop rain has caused flooding in six states, with the southern state of Johor the worst hit. Over 34,000 people have been moved to temporary relief shelters nationwide as the Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) predicted continuous heavy rain until Saturday (4 March). 

In a TikTok video that went viral recently, a woman shared a video of five stray cats that were put inside a cage after they were saved from the floods. 

The poor kitties were seen soaking wet and hanging onto dear life, probably scared and confused. But luckily, kind Malaysians were there to help take them to a safe place. 

“Oh thank God you guys are alright. It’s a pity, they’re so scared,” the woman behind the camera can be heard saying.

“They sound so scared. They’re probably traumatised.”

The incident is believed to have happened in a town called Labis, in the Johor district of Segamat.

The video has since garnered over 593,600 views at the time of writing. 

Many Malaysians were touched and thanked the people for saving the cats, “Cold, wet, hungry, scared. I pray that God will protect all of you.”

“When it comes to animals, my heart just can’t take it. Thank you for saving them. Most strays will end up dead because they’re stuck and there’s no way for them to save themselves,” another person commented. 

Thank you, kind Malaysians, for not leaving our furry friends behind! We hope everyone is staying safe during this rainy season.
