Purr-fect rescue

Posted on 24 May 2023

Last night (Tuesday 23 May) at 7pm, Edwinstowe crews were called to rescue a tiny eight week old kitten trapped in a drain pipe.

The rescue was a complicated rescue, on Dukeries Complex, Boughton. Using small electric cutters, crews were able to extricate the kitten and hand it safely to the RSPCA.

Edwinstowe Watch Manager, Sean McCallum, said "We believe the kitten had been trapped in the drainpipe for a few days, so at only eight weeks old, he’s a lucky little chap.

"Inspector Kate Burris from the RSPCA also attended the incident and provided some much needed TLC, before taking him for veterinary care. We hear he’s doing very well!"
