It’s no secret that cats can find themselves into some very precarious circumstances, and that the same cats frequently require assistance in being rescued. These cats, on the other hand, take it to a whole new level!
Officers from the Thai Navy were inspecting the wreckage for signs of an oil spill when First-Class Petty Officer Wichit Pukdeelon saw four cats gathered aboard the sinking boat.
Take notice, kitty buddies (if you’re reading this), the standard for kitty antics has been increased. You don’t have to live up to these cat-themed expectations; all you have to do is be aware of them.
Apparently Thai Navy was on the lookout for a sinking boat to make sure it wasn’t releasing oil into the sea and endangering marine life. During their investigation, officials did find something unusual: numerous cats hanging to the lifeboat.
Thatsaphon Saii immediately grabbed a life jacket and swam the 50 feet to the boat.
Can you image what that would be like? Cats in the middle of the ocean aboard a leaky boat are not something most people expect to see.
What happened next is a heroic story. Where others may have left the cats, this heroic officer swam many times across the ocean to save each and every one of them!
They needed to act fast since the sinking boat was catching fire.
Observing how someone handles animals is an excellent method to determine whether or not they are a nice person. It goes without saying that this guy and the manner he handled these helpless animals demonstrates that he is a wonderful person.
One by one, he saved the kitties…
With the kitties desperately clinging to him!
Imagine the scratching from a cat!
All four cats were eventually rescued and returned to their boat.
The rescued kitties are now in good hands.
The cats were examined, and the appropriate authorities were notified about the sinking ship.
The kitties are snuggling up to their new hero!
What a fantastic story! Let us know what you think in the comments section.
