“My boyfriend saving a cat from flood waters near Bonita Beach,” Megan Cruz Scavo said in a tweet accompanying the heart-rending footage.

“Look at Michael saving the kitty. Awww,” Ross’ mom, Marybeth, is heard saying as she filmed the rescue.


Ross told the Washington Post that he noticed the “terrified” orange and white cat about 2 p.m. Wednesday after he sought shelter in his parents’ home while his house became submerged at the height of the storm.

“The storm surge had rushed up quite a bit at that point,” he told the newspaper.
