An elderly dog receives an extreme, life-saving makeover!
An Animal Services Officer responded to a call from a family in the San Jose community who was concerned because they could hear a kitten meowing in their house but they couldn’t locate it.
The Officer responded to their home and learned that a cat had given birth to kittens in the attic. One of the newborn kittens, however, with eyes still closed, must have wandered a little bit and took a tumble down a very narrow area between one of the walls of the house and the furnace.
The Officer was unable to reach the tiny kitten due to how far it had fallen and how narrow the area was where it was trapped.
Assessing the situation further, the Officer discussed with the owners of the home that the best chance they had of saving the kitten was by making a hole in the wall where the kitten was located.
The trick was making sure not to hurt the kitten in the process of making a hole in the wall.
The owners of the home agreed and the Officer made a small hole in the wall, that was precisely located where the kitten was stuck. The Officer was able to remove the kitten and took it to the animal shelter where it was taken in by a rescue as it was still in need of round the clock care and bottle feeding.
