Pup Guides Owner to Rescue Cat Trapped 100 Feet Down Cornish Mine Shaft

A cat named Mowgli was rescued by firefighters after falling 100 feet down a mineshaft in Cornwall, thanks to the quick thinking of a dog named Daisy. Mowgli had been missing for six days, and his owner, Michele Rose, was losing hope of finding him. However, Daisy started acting frantic, running in and out of the woods near their home in Harrowbarrow. Following Daisy, Ms. Rose discovered the mineshaft where Mowgli was trapped.

Daisy led Ms. Rose to the mineshaft and stopped right next to it. Ms. Rose praised Daisy as a superstar and an amazing dog, crediting her intervention to Mowgli’s rescue. The RSPCA and Cornwall Fire and Rescue were called, but it was too dark on the first night to access the mineshaft.Daisy and Mowgli

The following day, the rescue team, led by RSPCA animal rescue officer Stephen Findlow, spotted Mowgli 100 feet down the mineshaft. Miraculously, Mowgli was uninjured, and the team pulled him to safety. The family’s other cat, Baloo, welcomed Mowgli after the rescue. Ms. Rose mentioned that she adopted Mowgli and Baloo in December 2022 and introduced them gently to Daisy, who had been with the family since she was a year old. Daisy, described as matriarchal, is protective of the kittens, and they have been inseparable since their introduction.
