We all make bad choices. We do things that at the time seem like a good idea and then quickly realise we made a mistake. The same goes for animals, and this kitten learned that lesson the hard way when it became stuck down a 10 foot deep crawlspace.
When Winston Young heard a meek voice coming from the inside of a crawlspace, he was surprised to see a pair of tiny eyes staring back at him. The problem was, how was he going to get in there to rescue the poor kitten who had become stuck?
With the help of a friend, Winston came up with a plan to retrieve the small kitten and return her safely to her worried mom. They couldn’t reach the baby as the crawlspace was too deep so they concocted a device to lift it to safety.
Attaching yarn to four corners of a mesh netting bag, they tied a rope to it and placed food in the centre, with the intention of attracting the kitten to the net. After several minutes of coaxing the frightened baby to the food, they managed to capture it and lift it to safety.
Mommy cat immediately ran to the side of her flustered child and promptly began fussing over her. Even in the animal kingdom mothers worry about their children and this mom’s worry wasn’t over yet. After the retrieval of this baby she led the men to three more kittens who were trapped in the crawlspace.
Maybe she had thought they would be safe in there under shelter but didn’t think it the whole way through. All parents make mistakes and luckily this kitty managed to find help for her babies before something bad happened.
