Wendell Overton, 10, of Manteo made the world a better place on March 12. Jackson the cat was being tortured by a group of boys. Courageous Wendell rescued Jackson and took him home to his mother, who called the Outer Banks SPCA. Jackson is doing great and will be available for adoption soon! Thank you, Wendell, for being so brave and doing the right thing! Overton had seen the black-and-white cat in the neighborhood before, WVEC reported. On the day of the attack he became worried that his injuries were serious.
"He said 'Mom, this cat is going to die. We need to save it,'" his mother said in the video above.
The story generated a flurry of attention for Jackson and Overton. Shortly after the photo went online, the SPCA posted an update:
WOW! Words cannot express how moved we are by the overwhelming response to Wendell's story. We wanted to give everyone an update on Jackson, the cat saved by Wendell's compassion and bravery. He is recovering well, resting comfortably, eating like a king and will be looking for a new home soon! Tons of cards and letters poured in praising Wendell's bravery.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
