We must have heard enough scientific reports that talk about the benefit of drinking coffee. But you would be blown out of your minds when you come to know that a Canadian man, an oil worker, used coffee to melt ice and save 3 kittens from getting intense frostbite.
When Kendall Diwisch, the Canadian man in question found these 3 animals frozen, he couldn’t just turn his face, could he? He stumbled upon them when he was doing the rounds of his well checkup in Alberta, Canada. Coming to a stop after hearing their screeches, he noticed that a couple of them had their tails frozen to the ground.
Herein lies the common sense of this man. Without waiting to ask for help, or to Google ‘How To Melt Ice’, he poured his coffee all over the ice to melt it. And guess what? It worked.
Quite hilariously, the kittens decided the coffee would be a better drink than an ice melting liquid. But what remained of his coffee was poured on the ice, it was fortunate enough to melt the ice to a degree where Kendall could pull them out of their icy jail. Obviously, it hurt them a little bit, but there was no visible mark on their bodies. And the coffee, too, didn’t hurt them.
As any good Samaritan would do, this Canadian man took them home and gave them food and heat to rejuvenate them. He drove them over to his house, and also did some basic deworming- for he was thinking of giving them for adoption. Later, he logged onto Facebook and narrated his story to his friends, where it soon turned viral. He narrated how the cats might have been incredibly frightened at their perilous condition, and yet decided to trust a complete stranger with their life. Also, it has been assumed that the cats had been frozen since the night before. So, they probably would have died if he wasn’t there at the correct time.
The moment he gave them up for adoption, he started receiving floods of offers. As of now, the kittens have found a home for themselves which loves them to the core. According to Cause for Critters, the cats were adopted by a family in Drayton Valley.
Well, we certainly have to thank media outlets and other web sources for spreading this news as far as they could.
It is this basic morality that we show towards animals of other species is what makes us human. The ability to rationalize with ourselves that the need of the hour wouldn’t be to turn away, but to help someone in need. It didn’t cost this Canadian man a thing. In fact, it simply made him a rightful hero in the eyes of the public.
The world needs some humanity amidst the ongoing turmoil and this Canadian man shows that he can truly be one of the few chosen ‘humans’.
