Hero saves cat from drowning in the Thames (video)
True character is how you behave when no one is watching. (Scroll down for video)
In a CCTV video posted by ITV, viewers witnessed a poor cat, later identified as Felix the cat, being chased by a rival on the London docks, right onto the edge of the Thames. Little Felix then tumbled into the water.
A man who happened to be at the right place at the right time, witnessed little Felix fall and sprang into action. He laid on the ground and reached for the distressed cat, thrashing in the water, and calmly grabbed Felix by her scruff and hauled him to safety.
Watch the incredible rescue in the video below!

Felix the cat turns out to be the official office cat of the Royal Docks Authority, and her mates were delighted to have her back.
The authority then issued this hilarious statement about Felix and how she was doing:
Felix the RoDMA cat ended up in the drink while bravely engaging in a hostile territorial battle (i.e., running away) from another cat.
We can happily report that Felix suffered no injury or trauma.
She also seems to be completely unaware that the rest of the RoDMA team have been laughing behind her back after the blase ‘nothing to see here’ routine that followed her dunking.
Naturally, this man’s rescue went viral on social media, generating applause from around the world for this small but heroic act of kindness. #SavingFelix
The authority later identified engineering and operations manager Scott Derben as Felix’s hero.
Some are calling for this man’s knighthood. At the very least, we think, he deserves a pint or two.
Share this great rescue!
