Dubai cat heroes get AED50,000 each from Sheikh Mohammed

The four cat heroes who saved a cat falling from a balcony in Deira have been rewarded with AED50,000 from Sheikh Mohammed.

The four cat heroes quickly went viral after footage of them saving a pregnant cat falling from a 2nd-floor balcony was released.

And it caught the attention of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

He asked via Twitter for people to find the Deira cat heroes. And after some internet sleuthing, the four cat-lovers were found.

And thanks to their heroics, they now have AED50,000 sitting in the bank after a generous cash prize from the Dubai ruler.

How cool is that?!

Impressively, none of the Deira four knew each other. They simply came together at the right time to do the right thing.

The four men were Ashraf, a Moroccan watchman; Atif Mehmood, a Pakistani salesman; Nasser, an Indian driver working with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA); and Mohammed Rashid who took the video.

Well done guys!
