Kitten Rescue

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day. We did not do anything special. I had to work. However, the boss did allow me to leave early if I wished. So I completed the important stuff and was out quicker than a fat kid in a dodge ball game.

As I was getting into my car I heard a loud kitten sound. I stopped and listened for a minute just to make sure I wasn't hearing a squirrel in distress. The cry was consistant and loud. "But where is it coming from?" I thought. That's when my attention was drawn to a storm drain on the side of the road across from the parking lot.

I skipped across the road making sure no traffic was coming. The cries got louder. I got down on my knees and peered through the leafy garbage piled on top of the grait. 

Looking back at me was a cute little white kitten. It looked so excited to see me. It would climb up the wall of the drain as far as it could, then flip back to the bottom. It was rather pitiful. Thats when I began talking to it as if it understood me. "Hang on little buddy and ill get you out somehow". 

I reached down as far as I could and the kitten climbed as high as it could. It latched on to four of my fingers as I slowly scooped her to the top and brough her out. She was someones missing pet as she was wearing a tiny flea collar. I'm guessing she was around 6 to 8 weeks old. There are no houses in this industrial park so she may have wondered a good distance.

I immediatly cupped the kitten in my hands as I brought her close to my chest. It fell limp and looked up at me as it purred. She was ok. Just tired. I brought her into the office and cut her little flea collar off just incase I had to let her go stray again. I didnt want her out growing it and choke. 

I offered a free kitten to anyone who would be interested. I could not take her and we are not ready to house an office cat. No one wanted it. Finally one employee caved and ended up taking it home to his girlfriend.



We named her "Drain-o"

  3. She is definitely used to people, it's a good thing you heard her crying or else she would have died right there. Drain-o will make an excellent pet I am thinking.

  4. I found a little kitten behind my old store once. Carried it all the way home, nobody else cared about it except me apparently. I had a dog that liked to rough house, so we gave it to the animal shelter before we got too attached.
