The happy ending to this story is thanks to a very, very good Samaritan who saw a cat get hit by a car, took her to the vet, paid for her care, and returned her to the woman who had been missing her for 10 months.
Tango the cat had been missing from her West Palm Beach FL home for 10 months when she was struck by a car recently and lay helplessly on a roadway median with a broken pelvis. Local restaurant owner Rocco Mangel saw her getting hit and laying there, and, with the help of his ex-wife, rescued her and took her for veterinary care. Rocco raised money for the cat’s care, and pitched in some of his own money to help her recover from her injuries.
A microchip scan at the vet identified Tango as Sara Stout’s missing cat. As we can see in the video below, Sara is thrilled to know that Tango is safe and to have her back again.
Rocco says he does not want to be paid back for his efforts but, instead, hopes people will be inspired to pay it forward.
