The Italian Coast Guard found a kitten floating out at sea and appeared lifeless. Since the coast guard’s job is to save lives, they quickly retrieved the kitten and began performing CPR on it.

After a few modified chest compressions and puffs of air, the little feline let out a few weak meows. Now the kitten, named Charlie, has not only survived, but is thriving. Everyone around the world, and especially in Italy, should be proud that the Italian Coast Guard saves lives of all kind regardless of species.
