On December 21st, the workers at the Gorkomhoz utility center in Ulyanovsk were surprised to find a cat in a bag, quite literally! The poor kitty in the bag eventually turned out very lucky, and probably used one of his nine lives, as he was picked up from a conveyor belt only a meter away from the separator that processes the trash.
Mikhail Tukash was the person who unknowingly saved the cat. They have to cut and check every bag on the belt line for metals, and as he picked it up, he didn’t suspect what contents he would find, because the cat neither moved, nor meowed. The cat probably used another of his nine lives, as the cut didn’t touch him. Mikhail looked inside and saw a set of beautiful cat eyes looking back at him. And the cat was out of the bag, a beautiful black and white one, at that.
The worker shook his head in disbelief and told everyone around him. They stopped the belt line to take a moment to comprehend what just happened. The cat was well-fed and well-cared for, so he was definitely a house cat and not a stray. They immediately took the cat to the veterinarian to check his health. It was determined that the cat had no injuries and had figuratively “landed on his feet,” as it were, making the reasons for the “disposal” by his previous owners even more unfathomable.
