There’s no two without three. When a boy from Yantai, in Shandong province, China, presented his mother with a cat in a cardboard box, asking if he could keep it, she was not surprised: it was not the first time she had rescued a puppy on the street for offer him a new life.
What she did not know is that the gesture of her son, which she helped herself, had not gone unnoticed, and all the attempts made to save this kitten were filmed by a camera. A video that has gone viral, as a small big gesture that can restore confidence to the world.
In the video published by South China Morning Post we see the young man doing everything to help a frightened white cat who could not get off the wall on which he had ventured. As soon as she saw him in trouble, she looked for ways to help him as quickly as possible. So he looked around and took a cardboard box: he raised his arms as high as he could to put it next to the frightened cat, but it wasn’t enough.
On the advice of his mother, he found a long plastic cone, the ones used for road works. With that he would get to the edge of the wall, but the cat just didn’t feel like jumping off. Then he took the box back, and the cat began to show himself more courageous, trusting the boy and throwing himself into the box, getting out of this bad situation unscathed.
Needless to say, the cat has also found a family. The boy had already brought home two other cats and now the newcomer has joined the cheerful gang, ready to remind everyone how small gestures can change lives.
