The RSPCA has today issued flood warnings after reports started pouring in from all over Britain that it's actually raining cats and dogs.
Due to freak cloud formations known as Cumulus Canine and Feline Nimbus, pets are raining down on houses all over the country. The RSPCA has launched emergency lifeboats to retrieve stranded animals from rooftops.
Mrs April Showers from Tewkesbury today commented,"It started with just a couple of kittens dropping from the skies and by lunchtime we had full grown rottweillers thudding onto the roof. The cats always land on their feet but the dogs are just slamming into everything. My conservatory was wrecked by a sudden flurry of Yorkshire Terriers."
Reports are coming in from pet-flooded areas of waves of animals careering through high streets and knocking pensioners to their knees. Mrs Doris Warburton, being treated at the local Accident Unit for bruised legs said, "It's bad enough with all this bad weather we're having without having a ginger tom wrapped round both ankles."
