Problem: how to get a mother cat and newborn kittens out of a 60-foot drain pipe? Not so simple. But the never-say-die crew at Hope For Paws pulled it off. You’ll be amazed to see how.
The Los-Angeles based rescuers usually help dogs, but this time it was a mother cat and kittens in a tight spot. They performed a quick on-site reconnaissance and decided they need the right tools to get the job done.
They came back the next day ready to go to work. Using a camera taped to a remote control car and a flashlight, they were able to monitor the rescue operation, one phase of which included using a pole wrapped with a towel to gently push the kittens to the end of the drain pipe where rescuers were waiting.
Mom cat and her kittens were taken home by one of the Hope for Paws crew who will foster them.
