There are some amazing things that can be accomplished with coffee, but hearing about a man that used a cup of coffee to free three Tabby kittens who were frozen to the ground by their tails absolutely warms the heart.

The New York Post recently shared the story of Kendall Diwisch, a Canadian oil worker who was inspecting wells in Alberta when he stumbled across the trapped trio, who were all desperate to get out of the bitter Canadian cold. He used his lukewarm cup of coffee to carefully thaw the kittens out of the ice.

 “So today I found these three fellows on one of the back roads near one of my wells. Most likely dropped off. Poor things were frozen into the ice, so they had to have been there all night. Took them home fed and watered them they look to be healthy and friendly. If any friends are looking to have a new addition in their family, let us know as they will need homes. All three look to be males, and we also gave them dewormer,” Diwisch said in a Facebook post on January 22.

Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them bring cups of coffee and carry a kind heart.

An update was posted later by Diwisch about the three kittens that happily wrapped up their fates due to this compassionate deed.

“All three little rascals went to their new home today where they get to be together instead of separating them," he said. "All three are eating and drinking and very energetic. Thanks for everyone’s consideration and offering to take them very appreciated.”

Cause for Critters also shared the story of their rescue and rehome. So happy to hear all three were adopted together and are beginning their new life.
