    Perhaps it was auditioning for Feline Fear Factor.

    -----

    WENATCHEE, Wash. - One plucky cat is waiting to go home. But no one knows where home is.

    The cat is resting up at an animal shelter in Washington state after leaping from a pickup, scampering through traffic, plunging 70 feet into the chilly Columbia River and swimming 600 feet to shore.

    Officials at the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society say the cat "ate ravenously" after its ordeal.

    Now they're trying to figure out whose cat it is. The gray, long-hair calico has no collar.

    Witnesses say the cat came off a pickup truck that was driving across a bridge. It managed to dash through traffic, and Humane Society officials found it cowering in the center of the bridge. But before they could catch it, it leaped over the railing.

    They watched the kitty hit the water below, go under, surface, then swim like mad. A man in a kayak helped guide it to shore.

    And I purposely said SUPERCAT instead of SUPERKITTY just to avoid this kind of thing.
