Anyone who loves cats will know that our furry friends get a bad rep. They can be loyal, loving and the best of companions when they want to be. However, any cat owner will also readily admit that cats can be total d***s.

A video has recently been trending of an anonymous hero passerby rescuing a cat who fell into the Thames.

The cat in question was none other than the official office cat of the Royal Docks Management Authority (RoDMA) in London, whose name is Felix.

While many have been congratulating the yet-to-be-named man (presumably a London docks worker) who saved Felix after she tumbled over the dock, fewer have been commenting on the fact that she was chased by another cat before she fell into the water, and then abandoned by the feline foe.

It’s very The Lion King-esque.

Check out the video here:


In a statement Royal Docks Management Authority said: “Felix the RoDMA cat ended up in the drink while bravely engaging in a hostile territorial battle (ie running away) from another cat.

“We can happily report that Felix suffered no injury or trauma.

“She also seems to be completely unaware that the rest of the RoDMA team have been laughing behind her back after the blase 'nothing to see here' routine that followed her dunking.”
