Nothing is worse than when you’re enjoying the trip, taking on the hike, and then you get lost in the middle of nowhere, everything didn’t go as planned. This guy in the following video is not an exception, he’s struggling finding the way out and a little guardian appeared to save him!
A Reddit user sc4s2cg shared his most memorable journey in the mountains in Gimmelwald, Switzerland.
“Gimmelwald is a tiny, tiny stunningly beautiful village. I actually got ‘lost’ in the surrounding mountains. It was the end of ski season when I got to Lauterbrunnen, so the lifts weren’t working and some of the trails were closed.”
He climbed the mountain along the roundabout and continued on the ski lift. Eventually, he went up and decided to follow the railroad tracks in the middle of the “totally empty town”.
When he was taking a break, sitting to check on the map, having some snack, figuring out the way back home, a calico kitty came up to him.
“As soon as I got up she started guiding me along some path,” he said.
“She seemed super friendly considering I was a total stranger, must be used to the tourist crowd that comes annually in that region.”
This guy thought a Swiss guide kitty must be living around this town, not just a regular random cat or a cat who got lost like him. ‘Lost buddies’!
The most heartwarming in this story was “She was walking and kept looking at me to follow, led me straight to the path that would take me back down to the valley.” – Shared sc4s2cg.
Not only just dogs can be a rescuer, in this case, a mountain cat can too!
“We actually separated right at the end of that video.” he said. “I had to get down, and she had a territory to protect!”
Eventually, he was safe from this Swiss guardian, and he decided to share this story to show how friendly and brave this cat was. Then another reddit user recognized the cat and left the comment: “The same cat went hiking with me and my friend 3 months ago!”
According to starspace1, the cat belonged to a hostel in the village and really loved tourists.
“I was basically calling her adorable, asking rhetorical questions like ‘are you coming?’, wondering where she was taking me. It’s one of my best memories of my trip for sure!” – The guy who got lost ended the story.
