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.
