This lucky cat spent one hour underwater in a sunken boat on Lake Havasu between California and Arizona and lived through it. She was tucked away in a compartment on the boat and was found by chance after the boat was taken back to shore in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. The owner of the boat said she didn't belong to him so the local Humane Society took her in and named her River. 

Since she isn't microchipped the humane shelter is waiting five days for any possible owners to claim her. After that time River will be up for adoption. Hopefully she can find a home much farther inland.

This dapper calico named Tama had a very important role as the station master of an electric railway station in Japan. After eight years on the job, she was laid to rest in a beautiful ceremony which 3,000 co-workers, admirers and friends attended. 

As you can see, she took her job very seriously. The Kishi Railway Station where Tama worked was nearly shut down, leading to her adoptive owner, a local grocer, to be named station master in 2006 to cut costs. A year later Tama took over the role.

Her popularity as station master is credited for saving the station. She even has her own merchandise.

Fortunately a new station master has been named. Tama had an apprentice who is ready to take over the job. She is also a calico cat, her name is Nitama and by the way she's wearing that station master hat, it looks like she's up for the challenge.
