A cat in the Bronx, New York was rescued minutes before garbage pickup after being thrown out inside his carrier with the trash. The sweet kitty, now named Earnest Raymond, is currently in a foster to adopt program where he is very much loved.
Earnest Raymond was found Wednesday morning by a Bronx resident Raymond Deidesheimer and his girlfriend as they walked past some garbage bags waiting for trash pickup.
Minutes away from being compacted, Earnest Raymond was spotted in his carrier among the garbage bags. He was buried under several bags and could easily have been overlooked by the garbage service.
This sweet kitty will likely shoot to internet fame since it’s a feel-good story and cat advocates love a good rescue tale.
Little Wanderers NYF founder Lisa Scroggins confirmed Earnest Raymond was spotted only minutes before the garbage truck was due.
More photos and videos can be found on the Little Wanderers Instagram. As you can see in this recent photo, Earnest Raymond is being treated like a king.
Our thanks go out to everyone involved for getting this unwanted kitty off the streets and into a loving home.
