Heartwarming moment a kitten is rescued from a deep well

This is the heartwarming moment a frightened kitten, meowing at the bottom of a well, is saved in Indonesia on April 5.

Footage shows the filmer lowering a bucket on a string into a well as we hear the distressed kitten meowing. When the bucket reaches the kitten we see it is perched on a tiny ledge trying to avoid the water.

The kitten knows exactly what to do and clings on to the bucket which is very carefully retracted back to the surface. The water logged little cat then leaps off and runs out into the sun.

The till skittish kitten starts licking itself clean from the dirty water. In a double attack of heart string pulling one of the kittens friends comes over and helps out with the cleaning process.
