Once people on the platform saw the clip, they couldn’t help but applaud Ross’ compassion for the distressed pet amid the chaotic weather.
One person wrote: “How can you not applaud this guy (even though it’s a pretty scary move…). Bless him.”
“This is humanity at its best. Think if we did that with fellow humans who just need a break from the storm. Or a rescue. Just a sign that they mean something. We can do better,” another added.
A third wrote: “This is honestly one of the best things I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Your boyfriend didn’t just save that cat, Megan. I think he saved me, too..”
Someone else added: “This boyfriend is a keeper. Continuing to pray for those impacted by Hurricane Ian!”
Ross also told the Post that that cat is staying with his family, and they plan to keep it if they can’t reach the owner.
Elsewhere, Scavo shared an update to Twitter, noting that they are calling the sweet kitty Ian. She also attached a link to a GoFundMe page to help raise money to restore their home and others’ houses affected by the storm's strong winds and flooding.
Half of the proceeds raised are going to the Humane Society Naples in honour of Ian the cat to help other pets impacted by the devastating storm.
