Pablo uses up one of his nine lives!

Pablo uses up one of his nine lives! thumbnailPablo back home safe and sound.

A PORTRUSH man has spoken of his relief after being united with his cat which was cruelly kicked into Portrush harbour.
Matthew Faithy, 40, was at work when it happened, but found out because a passerby had posted pictures on Facebook. He left work to see if it was his cat in the pictures.
When he got home on Sunday night (October 30), Pablo was wet but it hadn't been raining and Matthew realised he was soaked with salt water.
He said, "I definitely knew he'd been kicked into the harbour, which was horrible and upsetting for me at the time. He's got a bit of pain in his spine but he managed to get out of the harbour and climb up the rock so he could get away."
Matthew said he is happy that Pablo made it back safely. "I'm delighted he's okay. He had the sense to come home and got dried off."
Pablo has since been to the vet who said the pain in his spine was probably from being kicked. Other than that, Pablo had no damage to his internal organs.
Timid
Matthew added that Pablo is a bit more timid than before, but is still sociable. "He's out and about all the time in Portrush. He likes to play around the harbour and is a very friendly cat. The vet said he should be okay.
“Obviously I was very upset and angry at the time, but you know, there's worse things happening. He's fine, he seems to be okay."
