Italian coast guard saves drowning kitten with mouth-to-mouth


The Italian coast guard has rescued and revived a kitten that was drowning by using massage and mouth-to-mouth.

A sailor jumped in the sea to rescue the cat, which was floating apparently lifeless in the water, as the coast guard ship entered the Sicilian port of Marsala after a patrol mission.

A veterinarian on shore says the kitten is now in good health. He has been given a home at the Marsala maritime district office and has been named Charlie.
