A kitten may have used up one of its 9 lives, but the feline has 8 more thanks to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office Marine unit.

Deputies were dispatched to an area near the Roosevelt Bridge after a good Samaritan called to say tiny cries were coming from the water.
       
A kitten was discovered clinging to some oysters on a piling.
  
The kitten was worn out and struggling to stay afloat.
  
The deputy was able to pull the animal out of the water and get it safely inside the boat.
