Italian Coast Guard Saves Drowning Kitten
An Italian coastguard successfully gave CPR to a motionless kitten which was pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea.
A group of children spotted a kitten floating in the water near the port of Marsala in southern Italy and immediately notified the Italian Coast Guard.
A crew member dived into the water to retrieve the “lifeless” kitty and started performing mouth-to-mouth and gentle chest compressions. After a few minutes the kitten showed signs of life. They could see the kitten was breathing and began to expel water before finally letting out a faint meow!
Once they reached dry land the kitten was taken directly to the vets were he was nursed back to health. The coastguard members were so touched by this kitty that they decided to adopt him. They named him Charlie and he now lives at the Port Authority.
