When Russia invaded Ukraine, one of the first territories they conquered was an island called Snake Island. Despite the overwhelming advantage in numbers, Russian forces have struggled against Ukrainian forces.

After holding on to Snake Island for several months, Russian troops recently vacated the island, allowing Ukrainian soldiers to take it back. When the Ukrainian soldiers arrived on the island, they found a lone cat that had managed to survive all this time. How this cat managed to survive for so long remains a mystery, but at least now the cat is in safe hands with the Ukrainian military.
