  • Somehow, the animal had gotten itself perilously close to the freezing cold water. And in an attempt to save itself from sinking into the depths, it hung desperately onto a nearby ferry. Fortunately, though, Johan Skärkarl was at the scene – and the creature’s plight spurred him on to attempt an intrepid rescue.

    Skärkarl had spotted the animal clinging on for dear life to the HSC Gotlandia II – a vessel that takes passengers to the Swedish island of Gotland. At the time of the incident, the ferry was docked in Visby, which is the island’s principal town and home to nearly half of Gotland’s residents.

    And as the salvage operation took place in February 2014, the waters around Gotland were likely to have been very cold indeed. Indeed, sea temperatures in Visby in February typically fall between 33 °F and 37.4 °F. Swimming in such conditions, then, may lead to hypothermia. But Skärkarl was seemingly not going to let this stop him.

    Dear all that cat picture showing a boot, and pathetic poor abused cat, this picture was used before and said "no one in neighborhood would touch this cat showed a guy pick it up and then said killed by dogs in the very neighborhood been all it's life....come back ones that are really doing this work. Same picture different story so depressing. There is so much that's not true, sad if people send money, but no animal rescue. Sorry you are putting yourselves out there...and some just take pictures not in real time . You are asking for .....$.

    What was the cat suppose to say? The fact orhers saw this man rescuing this kitty would be enough. I doubt he was looking for praise just the right thing to do. Good on you sir.

    This is not possible first no competent doctor would ever let a woman who is experiencing a multiple pregnancy 1 go into labor. 2 she would be getting prepped for a c section.
    because she not be able to deliver vaginally. 3 the biggest tipoff is her supposed stomach to round and to big it looks like what it is a large beach ball covered with beige materal what a stupid video

    Some time ago, I read an interview from the man whose boot the kitten was clinging to, begging to be saved. The man explained that he decided to let nature take its course, and he left the kitten to fend for itself. I cannot imagine a heart so cold. How could anyone look at this poor kitten and not want to help it? Every time I see this photo, I get angry. I don't think this kitten had much time left without help.
