In Rhyl, Wales, it didn’t rain cats and dogs, but it did rain one single kitten.

This adorable downpour occurred when the innocent stray was attacked by a group of seagulls. One of the birds picked up the 4-week-old cat and flew off, later dropping the kitten on the ground.

Luckily, a Good Samaritan spotted the kitten and reported her to RSPCA Cymru, who came to rescue the animal and, remarkably, found her frightened but unharmed from the fall.

“This poor kitten must have been through a terrifying ordeal – seemingly swooped upon by a gull, before being dropped to the ground,” RSPCA Cymru said in a statement. “We’re grateful to a member of the public who spotted her and notified us, and thankfully she was rescued unhurt.”

The kitten, who is now named Sky, was taken to one of the RSPCA’s animal hospitals, where she is receiving around-the-clock-care. Vets are hand-rearing the kitten, who is still too young to care for herself.

“Sky is very young, and will now be hand-reared at our Animal Centre, and should be available for re-homing when she is old enough,” the RSPCA added.
