Cyril and Erik Rohrer climbed Mount Britsen in Switzerland.
Around 4:30 a.m., at an altitude of around 4,000 feet above sea level, the guys were awakened by the sound of a cat meowing in the jungle.
This took them by surprise, and they were even a little scared at first.
Following that, a striped kitten rushed up to them and begged for petting, refusing to leave the hikers’ side.
Although it was still over 7,500 feet to the summit of the mountain, the visitors couldn’t abandon the cat to its destiny or quit the route altogether.
As a result, the four-legged creature had to go a considerable distance uphill after them. As a result, she climbed to an altitude of 10,000 feet above sea level.
“We were definitely confused. I felt pity for the animal the whole time. She was completely exhausted on the ridge under the summit,” Cyril said.
Kitty was exhausted, and every now and again Cyril or Eric would take her in their arms or place her on top of their bags.
The snowy cover of the mountain was causing the cat’s paws to bleed profusely.
At the end of the trip, the boys came upon hikers who were making their way down to the plains and into the city. This group was given the cat by the other group.
The owners had already awaited her arrival. Unfortunately, it turns out that kitten had gone missing four days before.
She had already climbed to the top of the mountain with other tour groups the day before.
That is, the kitten had to climb up and down the mountain multiple times before finally meeting the owners.
“Animals have a strange behavior. In addition, they are significantly tougher than human beings. They are not going to give up. Despite the fact that they were quite painful,” summarized one of the men.
