The Dublin Fire Brigade and DSPCA joined forces yesterday for a very important rescue operation.

The DSPCA and Dublin Fire Brigade rescued a cat from the River Liffey yesterday

A cat named Casper had fallen in to the River Liffey off Bridge Street in Ringsend. The cat managed to perch on a rock but was unable to climb out.

A passer-by alerted the DSPCA and a boat was launched to retrieve the 18-month-old kitty - who was presumably a bit cranky but other okay.

And they’ve released a video of the happy moment - you can hear the poor littly guy’s meows as his rescuers approach.

Luckily, Caspar was microchipped so the DSPCA was able to reunite Caspar with his owner.
