The black cat was out on the ice on the Arkansas River in downtown Wichita on Thursday afternoon, and it wasn’t moving.
A motorist spotted the cat shortly after 4 p.m. and, concerned, called 911. An animal control team arrived on the scene and contacted the Wichita Fire Department, which alerted the water rescue team.
The Beauties and Beasts has rescued hundreds of animals. Now, the rescue group is hoping to expand on that with its first home. Today, Beauties and Beasts is hosting a benefit to let people tour its new facility.
