Last week the BBC (and many other outlets) reported on an amazing rescue story. A ship was on fire and sinking in the Andaman Sea.  All crew members escaped and were rescued by a local fishing boat. The Thai Navy was called to inspect the site for an oil spill, but when they arrived, they saw four cats stranded still on the ship clinging to a wooden beam. The Thai sailors jumped into action and saved all the cats from the ship by swimming with them one by one on their backs. Once back at the command post the lucky cats were dried-off, fed and cuddled by their saviors. They also made time to pose for a few photos, which made them very popular on social media.
