Rescuers in Melaka saved a poor kitten that was stuck beneath a monsoon drain at Taman Paya Rumput Perdana yesterday.
The kitten apparently slipped and fell into a 10 metre deep drain. Passersby overheard the kitten’s yowling around noon which prompted them to call on Civil Defence Force (APM). As they arrived on scene, they found that the kitten was motionless on the side of the culvert.
Apparently it took them 30 minutes to bring out the kitten to safety. It was also said by Lt Kol Effendy that “it’s the first time such an operation was mounted to rescue a kitten trapped in a deep monsoon drain.” Before, they’ve found that most of them were stranded on trees or rooftops.
