WATCH: Hero Rescues Drowning Cat from the River Thames

“Felix” is a black and white moggy who lives at the Royal Docks Management Authority at the river Thames in London, UK. She was brawling with another cat close to the water’s edge when she got a little too close – and plunged into the frigid waters.

Fortunately for Felix, a cat-loving hero was nearby and saw the entire scene unfold. As soon as Felix went down, our hero sprung to action and lent a hand to pull her out. Then hero and soggy moggy wandered off as if nothing had happened! Watch:

The authority issued this statement that Felix was doing fine:

Felix the RoDMA cat ended up in the drink while bravely engaging in a hostile territorial battle (i.e., running away) from another cat.

We can happily report that Felix suffered no injury or trauma.

She also seems to be completely unaware that the rest of the RoDMA team have been laughing behind her back after the blase ‘nothing to see here’ routine that followed her dunking.

The RoDMA later identified Felix’s hero as engineering and operations manager Scott Derben. Cheers, Scott!

    I still get a kick out of watching Felix ‘take a drink’. His photo is a hoot, too, looking all ticked off, coincidentally. Way to go Scott !

Just when this dog-eat-dog world has handed you all the poop you can take, it's time to walk the dog. Or wash the dog. Or feed the dog. You get the idea. So welcome to the world of easy-to-care-for cats. Entertainment comes bundled in a furry, huggable, self-cleaning cat who won't beg for your food. In his eyes, you don't eat well enough anyway. Just keep a laser pen handy, sit back and wait for the fun to begin! Cats...ya gotta love 'em.
