Footage has emerged of a lifeguard coming to the rescue of a little kitten who looked like its time was up in the Sicilian sea.
Apparently the one-month-old kitty was drifting in the sea in Marsala before a group of children found it and called for help.
This is when one lifeguard turned into a heroic cat whisperer, using mouth-to-mouth and chest messages to save the kitty!
The footage is a little distressing to watch, so if you want to skip ahead to the happy ending, jump to the last 16 seconds and hear the frail meow leave the kitten’s mouth.
To top off the emotional story, port authorities kept the kitty and named him ‘Charlie’.
