Man Uses His Coffee To Rescue Kittens Stuck in Ice
His quick thinking helped free a trio of kittens – now he's getting worldwide recognition for his heroic act.
Canadian oil worker Kendall Diwisch got quite the surprise when he was out on the job last week. He was checking on his oil wells in Dayton Valley, Edmonton when he noticed what he thought was garbage on the snowy ground.
When he got closer, he saw that it was three kittens who appeared to be stuck in the ice. Diwisch quickly ran to his car, got his tumbler of hot coffee and poured it over their tails which were frozen to the ground.
The ice quickly melted and once the kittens' tails were free, Diwisch picked them up and took them home with him. After he fed and watered the kittens, he took to social media to share his story and try and find the animals a furr-ever home.
"Took them home, fed and watered them; they look to be healthy and friendly," he wrote in a Facebook post. "If any friends are looking to have a new addition in their family, let us know as they will need homes. All three look to be males, and we also gave them dewormer."
Diwisch included photos of the kittens in his post, along with a video he took when he freed them from the ice.
Since making the post, it has been viewed almost 750K times and has earned comments from people all over the world.

Diwisch posted an update a few days ago saying that the three kittens had found a home.
"All three little rascals went to their new home today where they get to be together instead of separating them," he wrote. "All three are eating and drinking and very energetic. Thanks for everyone's consideration and offering to take them very appreciated."
