RSPCA Inspector Sandra Dransfield got the call about the tiny, stuck kitten and immediately contacted South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue to come with her to rescue the kitten, since she knew she wouldn’t be able to on her own. When they arrived, they assessed the situation and realized the only way they would be able to rescue him was from the very roof that he fell from.
“It was clear that in order to rescue him, we would have to work from the flat roof above and that proved very tricky, due to the huge drop, the narrowness of the gap and the dangerously rough walls,” Dransfield said in a press release. “In addition, because he was probably a feral cat, he was very nervous of humans. To make matters worse, there was a lot of debris and rubbish at the bottom, and the kitten kept disappearing from sight.”
