91% of people say they would do what this woman did but would they?

A woman crawls into a small, wet, dirty drain opening in the gutter of a road and rescues a kitten who had fallen into the drainage system or she had been put there, we don’t know. How did a kitten get into a road drain?

These are the actions of a gutsy woman. And I love gutsy women with a heart and tenderness towards animals and animal rescue.

There were two people there because one of them videoed the rescue. That makes me a little thoughtful about the genuineness of this video. I only say that because a lot of people make videos for the internet with the sole purpose of making money through advertising on the video. But putting that aside for a moment because I am probably too cynical.

Comments on the video which has been seen over half a million times are generally full of praise for the courageous and kind action of this young woman and rightly so. I feel the same way except for the slight qualification mentioned above.

A poll under the video asked if visitors would do the same sort of thing and 91% said that they would. If that’s true we can say with confidence that the world is a better place than we think it is. But perhaps the sort of people who read these articles and watch these videos are kindly people interested in animal rescue.

  1. Of course I would! My claim to fame was going down a well to rescue a kitten. My sister was with me, we didn’t give a thought to getting photos or a video, it was a case of getting that hungry, terrified kitten to safety as quickly as possible.

  2. I would have done it. The last rescue I did I took snap shots of the cat before I took her from where she was, for proof of the need to; (she was extremely unkempt with a massive sarcoma that was noticeable).

  3. The kitten looked fully mobile so it could have easily fallen into the drain. It’s also common for everyone to have a phone and video. I might not have crawled into the drain but I certainly would not have walked away without finding help for the little bugger.
