Six orphaned kittens rescued from storm drain in New York


Published in Weird News

(UPI) Police in New York said members of the community helped rescue six kittens heard crying from inside a storm drain.

The Plattsburgh Police Department said officers were called to an intersection at which a resident heard kittens crying from inside a storm drain near where an adult cat, suspected to be the mother, was found dead on the road.

"Community members sprung into action and removed the 6 kittens from the drain," police said in a Facebook post.

The kittens were brought back to the police station, where officers and support workers used syringes and formula from a local veterinary office to feed them.


The department contacted local animal rehabilitation expert Sherry Deyo-Pugh, who agreed to foster the kittens.

"We are happy to report the kittens are in Sherry's care now, and are flourishing! Sherry even found every kitten a forever home," the post said.
