Video of People Trying to Rescue a Cat From a Canal Has Us on the Edge of Our Seats

We've seen stressful videos before that we want to look away from, but somehow when you add an animal into the clip, we're instantly hooked and can't stop watching. Sometimes those videos might be of a hiker who has a close call with a bear, scaring us from behind the screen. But most of the time, it's an animal's safety that makes our stress levels skyrocket. And this recent one from TikTok user @huakang0 is no different. 

Pedestrians were walking down the road next to a canal when they heard something. They discovered a cat stuck in the canal with no way out! Instead of leaving the cat there, meowing away, they decided to jump into action. The video shows these people using a long rope tied to a basket to try and pull the cat to safety. The painfully 1:36 long video will have your heart pounding the entire time!

Phew, that was a close one! We didn't know what was going to happen the entire clip. But thankfully the cat knew to trust these people and it was a happy ending! "The little meows. Poor baby, so happy it was rescued," said @jemianxo. We're so happy these people decided to help too!  

We think every TikToker had the same reaction we did while watching this. It was truly a rollercoaster of emotions because one minute it looked like they had the kitty and the next they had to throw down the basket again. Talk about stressful! @mynameisntalicee wrote, "My heart watching this:📈📉📈📉📈📉📈📉📈📉📈📉📈." Plus all that pounding! @carc219 added, "I think I stopped breathing watching this. Poor sweet angel." Same! But we finally caught our breath when we found the cat was safe.

"Moments like this remind you humans can be amazingly good and kind-hearted too," commented @lasoob. Right?! This is an amazing reminder to us all. They didn't have to save the cat, but they're good-hearted people who took the time to come up with a plan and save this precious creature. We want to see more interactions between animals and humans like this!
