The Vercettis live in Weslaco, Texas, an area hit by the flash flooding. When the waters began to rise around them last Wednesday, the family rushed to get their cats inside to safety. However, one kitty, named Blanca, thought she'd already found a good place to ride out the storm.
She was wrong.
"Blanca decided to stay out of the rain by hiding under the house," Vercetti told The Dodo. "We started to hear meows coming from under our bedroom floor."
With floodwaters continuing to rise beneath the home, Blanca was trapped.
