After leaving Dacun Train Station about an hour ago, I started walking north alongside the small river that runs alongside the tracks, and heard the distressed mews of an impressively-stuck moggy. Given the way raw sewage is handled in Taiwan, I do think the cat may literally be up shit creek without a paddle. I took a couple of pictures (see below) and went back to the tiny train station to use my terrible Chinese to try to explain to the staff that there’s a cat stuck in the river, and I wasn’t sure if someone should be called, although I wasn’t sure who! But although I got the cat’s situation across, my mayo ban-fars were met with their equally-shruggish mayo ban-fars.
It’s sunny today and it won’t be pleasant to be stuck in the sunshine for twelve hours, partially-submerged. Assuming Plans A (the little bastard should just swim for it) and B (I don’t have a gun) are out of the question, is there someone I could email? Some sort of Changhua Water Authority or River Police? The cat was 100m north of the station, next to the west bank.
Or should I just not care?
What’s it even standing on?!?!
