Digging out a young cat from a bombed out building in Gaza

This video is both amazing and incredibly sad at the same time. The young cat's cries are heartbreaking. It's nice to see this Gazan man digging out a young red-and-white bicolour random-bred cat from an entirely bombed out building in Gaza. His head just protruding through the rubble. It is horrible to see.

It must have been one of those buildings that was shelled or bombed by the Israelis. We don't know how many people were killed in the building if any at all. All we know is that this cat survived and was uncovered and rescued by this unknown man.

If you watch it to the end, you will see what I believe to be the kitten's mother chasing after her offspring as she/he races away from his rescuer.

My next thought is this: what will happen next to this cat? Life will be incredibly hard. When will the next bomb strike? Will he or she survive much longer?

In a normal situation, the rescuer would have placed the cat in a carrier and taken the carrier to a veterinarian for a checkup. And then taken the cat to rescue center. Or adopted the cat or rehomed the cat. Something like that but on this occasion the cat just runs off to face the incredible uncertainties of the near future in Gaza.

Like I said it's amazing and great to see because the man rescued and saved the life of this young cat but it is probable that he does not have much of a life left which is very depressing.
