When disaster strikes the natural reaction is to grab what is most precious to you and in the case of Kevan Yaets that was his cat Momo.
The pair got caught up in flood waters on Thursday that submerged the rather unfortunately named town of High River in Alberta.
Yaets and Momo found themselves trapped in their pickup truck after it became submerged after the Highwood River overflowed its banks and sweep downstream.
With the vehicle filling with water the pair had to escape by crawling out the back window and swimming to safety.
Momo swam bravely while his owner Yaets stuck close to his pet just in case he needed a helping hand. Fortunately for the pair they were able to reach some higher ground and got help from some other people caught up in the floods.
