Heroic Man Braves Oil Spill to Rescue Two Trapped Kittens
Animals| | By Jason Owen
Anatoly Tuptey rescued two kittens because his “soul could not stand the cries.”
That’s what the Russian man told The Siberian Times after he braved treacherous conditions to save two kittens trapped in an oil spill.
“My soul could not stand the cries,” Tuptey said after the oil spill in Nefteyugansk, Russia. “You never know what is going on. I had to check.”
Tuptey reportedly waded into the oil to rescue the kittens. Then, using his T-shirt, he dried them off and kept them warm.
Tuptey said he brought them home, cleaned them, and fed them.
“A few days earlier I rescued people and equipment when a boat overturned,” he said. “This day it was kittens.”
Because of Tuptey’s bravery, the kittens went from a life-threatening situation to a happy and healthy home, and even made a new friend in Tuptey’s dog, who seems to love them.
