When Francesco Murri heard crying on the streets down below while in his fifth-floor apartment in southern Italy, he immediately went to the window to see what it was. To his surprise, he saw a tiny kitten running through the streets, lost and alone.
Even though it was already dark outside, Murri decided that he couldn't leave the kitten out there all alone - and so he went to look for him.
"The sun had already gone down, and it was very difficult to find and catch this little kitty hidden in the parked cars," Murri told The Dodo. "I didn't want to give it up, so I tried my best and after 10 minutes of [this] strange quest in the darkness, I caught the loner kitten all covered in grime. I recall that his small heart was beating like a drum."
