This story is a great reminder how great people can be.
A video has gone viral in recent days of a teeny kitten stranded in the middle of a busy highway, and the Abu Dhabi Civil Defense team literally stopped traffic completely to rescue the fur baby. (Scroll down for video.)
The 44-second video shows four firefighters walking to the stranded kitten, before gently picking it up and running back to their vehicles. Three firefighter trucks were used to block the road.

He said the Civil Defence always deals with such incidents seriously by upholding the humanitarian and animal welfare principles.
