We could all use some good, wholesome news right now. You know, the kind that just restores our faith that even if humanity as a whole seems to suck sometimes, there are individuals out there who are just plain good.

That's probably why a simply image of a guy on a subway skyrocketed to viral fame recently.

The image is simple: a man seated in the corner of an NYC subway car, bottle-feeding a tiny kitten.

Before leaving the train, Gillian asked the man about the kitten.

He told her that he'd found the tiny animal alone between two buildings and couldn't bring himself to leave it.

From the way the kitten looked up at him as it drank from the bottle, the rescue was very much appreciated.
