Residents in Charleston, West Virginia kept hearing the cries of a little kitten but they aren’t sure where to find it or how to start with the search. Luckily, a group of kind-hearted people was alert enough to trace the helpless meows.
After trying to trace the call, they narrowed down the location of the sound to a storm drain along the side of the road. City workers and police officer Matt Perry even dropped what they were doing just to help look for the creature that was making the cries, according to Itty Bitty Kitty Committee.
This little kitten was found stuck in a tunnel beneath the road.
They spotted a tiny kitten down the tunnels beneath the road. But catching her was a real challenge.
The rescuers had a hard time trying to get the kitty to come near them.
She would retreat nervously further down the tunnel when the humans approached.
The rescuers then set a live trap but it also failed since the kitten didn’t weigh much to allow the trap to spring. Soon enough, the rescue group decided to save the kitty using fishing nets.
Finally, the plan worked and rescuers were able to get the six-week-old kitten to safety.
She was taken to a veterinarian where she was examined.
The vet also took her home to foster.
There’s a heartwarming twist to the story: the vet ended up taking Catlyn the kitten as his own. Catlyn has found a loving human who would give her a permanent loving home.
Catlyn gets to go home with a vet, who can provide her whatever she needs.
The rescue group and the city workers may have spent hours and hours just to get Catlyn out of harm’s way but their efforts paid off. Catlyn’s story has a happy ending after all.
