Cats were drenched and left behind by the flood. Here's their heroic rescue

Animals may not have the ability to speak, but sometimes, all you need to do is look in their eyes to know how they feel. A collection of cats who were left behind after Hurricane Harvey wrecked havoc in Southeast Texas were bravely rescued by many good Samaritans.
Each cat was drenched due to the endless rainfall that Harvey brought upon them. As the rescuers bring the cats to a safe area, you get a good look at each one and their disheveled appearance.
