Felix is normally trawling around the offices at London’s Royal Docks.
But on Sunday, the black and white cat was chased by another cat to the edge of the River Thames. That’s where she took an “involuntary dip” in the water, only to be rescued by a cat-loving — and fleet-footed — passerby.
The best part: All of it was caught on surveillance video.

That’s when a good Samaritan spotted the chaos.
And ran, then lunged to the rescue.
“There was a time when the waters of the Royal Docks were so filthy, an unexpected plunge would result in a period of quarantine,” Royal Docks explainsBut as if to prove just how well the waters are maintained by the staff of the Royal Docks Management Authority, Felix the RoDMA cat ended up in the drink while bravely engaging in a hostile territorial battle (ie running away) from another cat.”
Felix may be down a life.
“We can happily report that Felix suffered no injury or trauma,” the Royal Docks said in an update. “She also seems to be completely unaware that the rest of the RoDMA team have been laughing behind her back after the blasé ‘nothing to see here’ routine that followed her dunking.”
See. Not even a thank you.
This is a more laid back Felix.
The hero is being lauded around the world.
Not all heroes wear capes. https://t.co/fiNx1yz47s

Also noticed. Cats, even once saved, continue to be cats. You know, indifferent.
It’s the cat’s complete lack of gratitude that makes this clip. https://t.co/AQnFXJ8SB8
