This impossibly sweet video from last year has recently been discovered after going unnoticed. We are happy to share it now.
Here is the little story that goes with this video from May 2010; it’s all we know about little Gina:
Derek heard meow-like cries for help in a nearby trash can. It was empty except for a small, knotted black trash bag. Derek reached in and tore the bag open. Lo and behold, a kitten barely alive!!
The shelters & rescue centers were closed for the night so Derek had to nurture the kitten until morning.
This video is footage taken of Derek & the kitten, “Gina Fortunado” during the wee hours the next day. Gina was handed over to professionals who will raise her until she can be lovingly adopted — hopefully by Derek. What a miracle. Amazing.
We are told at the end of the video that Gina was taken into foster care, so we can hope that she ended up safe and in a good home.
The Beach Boys track is the perfect mood maker, we think.
