Facebook user Shen Sequitor extended a token of appreciation for the man’s kindness.

“Is anyone aware of how to contact or reach out to the rescuer? I’d like to give him a small hamper and a contribution for his selflessness. He is an amazing person, and he went out of his way. The cat would have a near-certain death if not for his intervention,” said the netizen.

Strangers rescuing animals in danger are often shared on social media.

On Jul 26 this year, a food delivery rider was seen stopping on a Central Expressway slip road to rescue a turtle attempting to cross the road.

In its attempt to cross, the turtle came dangerously close to the wheels of multiple cars.
