As soon as the firefighters arrived, the team began canvassing the building, searching for the place in the pipe where the kitten was hiding. Unfortunately, the kitten had gotten herself into an unreachable place, and so the rescue team had to get a little creative.
“The fire service advised that the only chance of getting the kitten out would be to gently flush the kitten down the drain with the fire hose on a low pressure, and have someone ready in the drain in the ground outside the building, ready to catch her,” Sanders said. “We listened carefully to work out which flow system the kitten had slipped down into, and once we’d worked it out, I was ready with a net. Sure enough, the kitten came sliding down into my hands, completely unharmed, although a little bit confused!”
