16 days after an earthquake --- they hear noises under the rubble!
September 13, 2016
We know that cats are able to survive even a month without food and several days without water but no one expected to find a tomcat named Pietro still alive after the terrible earthquake that hit several areas of central Italy.
In fact, the tomcat Pietro had remained trapped for 16 days under heavy piles of debris and rubble and nevertheless, somehow it had continued to meow until a firefighter heard its call.
When the rescuers attempted to pull the tomcat Pietro out of the rubble, he was so scared and confused that he even tried to scratch one of them!
