With all of the sad stories about animals, it’s good to have an awesome one like this to liven things up!

The man in this video should be a role model for everyone that says they love animals. And what makes him a role model? Well, it’s obvious once you look at his actions. Not only did he put himself in harm’s way twice by climbing a tall tree and jumping into a river to rescue a stray cat, but he also probably paid a lot of money to get his luxury car towed, taken apart, and then put back together again.

Most people wouldn’t go through that sort of trouble for a single cat, but the fact that this man did, teaches us an important lesson. All lives, no matter how small, are precious.

Luckily, in this case, the cat was adopted by this amazing man after being rescued. Enjoy your forever home, kitty!
