With all the tragedy in Texas right now, a little kindness goes a long way. In a video posted by the Dodo, a Texas resident is on his boat in the Hurricane Harvey-caused flood when he says "Y'all are not gonna believe what is swimming towards our boat." No, it wasn't a crocodile or Michael Phelps, it was a KITTEN. A young cat, paddling with everything it had towards the man's boat, a beacon of safety in a huge pool of water.

Sure, most cats don't love water, but that doesn't mean they can't swim when circumstances necessitate it.

The unidentified man, being a decent, kind-hearted human, plucked the little cat out of the water and set it down in the boat, where it proceeded to shake off the water and make itself at home. Affectionate little kitty!

Fishing for kittens.

And as if that wasn't heartwarming enough, the men on the boat notice another kitten jump from land into the water and begin swimming towards the boat like its sibling did. The man lifts the second kitty from the water and declares of the two cats, "They're twins!" It's almost too cute to bear. But bear it you must, because WATCH THIS SWEET VIDEO.

It's the little things that count. The kittens, I mean.

Thank you to these heroes with hearts of gold. Or at least hearts of orange tabbies.
