The old expression “curiosity killed the cat” comes from their adventurous nature, and kittens are even more likely to get themselves into predicaments. Sometimes these feline mishaps can pose a threat to both cats and humans, which is what happened recently in Malaysia.
A curious kitten was exploring as they tend to do when it got caught in an outdoor weather drain. There was no way the poor thing could escape, but a bystander named Abu Mujtahid was not going to let the little thing die. Abu is a 36-year-old man who is confined to a wheelchair.
Abu and his friend were on their way to a sports facility to train when they noticed the kitten struggling in the drain on the side of the road. Although he had limited mobility without the use of his legs, he still was not deterred from attempting to save the kitten.
Abu climbed out of his wheelchair and used his arms to shamble over to the drain. This heroic act was actually quite dangerous for Abu because a slip of his hands could have sent him into the drain himself. Given how steep the bank was, the hazard required a lot of caution.
Abu decided that he should save the kitten instead of his friend because his companion was using prosthetic legs which would be even more dangerous on the steep terrain near the weather drain. Abu said that he was glad to save the kitten even though the trip on the grass with his hands was arduous. After Abu saved the kitten, he moved to a safer area away from the drain. The kitten, a little bit wet and bedraggled, happily went on its way to live another day.
Do you think it was wise for Abu to risk his life for the kitten? Let us know in the comments, and be sure to tell people about this thrilling story!
