Kitten rescued from Hurricane Matthew

Thursday October 13th 2016

Rescuers made a tiny jumper made from a sock to keep warm a kitten saved from Hurricane Matthew.

The animal was rescued during heavy rains in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Torrential rain and powerful winds have caused chaos as the storm churned slowly north after pummelling the southeastern coast of the United States.

The kitten was brought into Petsmart's Banfield Pet Hospital in Raleigh, and treated as staff tried to find it a new home.

A Twitter user spotted the tiny cat and took adorable photos of the animal, causing a social media storm.

Sarah, whose Twitter handle is @crysomemore, says she was at Petsmart when a family looking at adoptable cats decided to take the hurricane survivor home.

Her social media post has been retweeted over 72,000 times.

One her way out of the store, she spotted the excited family walking around with the kitten in their arms, picking out toys, accessories and essentials for their new pet.
