Mike Ross risked his own life to save a cat when Hurricane Ian made landfall in southwest Florida.

In a video posted online, Ross is seen wading through a storm surge to reach the cat, which was sitting on an air conditioner near Bonita Beach.

The cat seemed to cling to Ross as he carried him inside.

Talking to The Washington PostRoss said the cat “appears healthy” and will remain with its family for the foreseeable future or until they find its owners.

Ross’ girlfriend posted a video on Monday of the cat, which they renamed “Storm”.

“It’s clear from her stealth behavior that she’s still very scared/traumatized, but she’s starting to come around,” she said.

Ross told The Post that he’s lived in Florida all his life, and Hurricane Ian caused the most destruction he’s ever seen.

He added that his house was badly damaged by the storm.
