UPDATE: Love cats? Feeling generous? A page has been set up allowing you to donate any sum you want to help Erran Frazier fix his truck, which, as you'll read below, he had to cut into his own truck to save a trapped kitten. Feel free to donate to the cause here, and note that the donations have already succeeded the asked-for amount.

The Internet as we know it is constructed primarily of cat pictures and videos, and ladies getting naked. That's just science. Our version of The Internet, as you know, consists mainly of cars, but that doesn't mean we don't dip into the kitten pool every now and again.

And certainly when we read that someone has gone so far as to rescue a kitten by cutting a hole (two, actually) in the bodywork of his own truck, well, shucks, that's exactly the kind of Internet we want to live in.

Erran Frazier of Vero Beach, FL, is one of the good guys, for sure. Hearing a the mewing of the tiny animal, but not able to locate it in or around his Chevy pickup, Frazier apparently went medieval on the vehicle. According to the CNN report, Fraizier and his wife are big animal lovers, so sacrificing the truck to save the kitty was a no-brainer.

Eventually, after contacting the Humane Society and getting some help from the local team, the cat was retrieved safely and Frazier walked away a minor hero. Scroll down below to hear him tell a bit of the tale (and give your own kit or pup a pat on the head).

      Same thing happened to me: kitten stuck behind the bumper grill of a VW Eos. Fortunately, a kindhearted car shop owner answered his mobile phone to an unknown caller (me) at 9pm and agreed to meet. Took him and a buddy about 30 minutes to dismantle the entire front bumper assembly and retrieve the frightened kitten, which promptly pissed on his hand :)

      God Bless you sir for valuing life in any form; and, then I read about an ignorant Texan who tossed a puppy out of a moving vehicle. http://www.mrt.com/statenation/article_c66e2220-f274-11e3-b7e0-0019bb2963f4.html.

      Seeing as I especially love cats, I'd be doing whatever it took to get it out of their safely. It's nice to here what he did and it would have been cool if he had kept it. I hate seeing animals end up in shelters.

      Very nice dude! Someone that values animals over material. Hope you receive some great Karma in return for saving the little one! ;-)

        Yes, hope led by real men, because real men own trucks.

      Compassion for the very smallest of creatures is a strength. So many people lack it. So many people tout their ignorance and lack of moral fiber as a strength. Here's a guy with the right stuff. Erran Frazier is one of the good ones.

      He values life more than physical possessions. We need more people like that in this world.

        I am guessing you are a vegetarian then?

          What the hell does saving a kitten have to do with diet choices? I'd guess somewhere in your feeble reasoning you believe you are making a point.
