This little kitten hungrily gobbles up food after she was rescued from a storm drain this afternoon. People passing by the storm drain could hear the kitten calling out from below the ground but couldn’t see her. Oakland Animal Services received numerous calls about this kitten in distress and Animal Control Officer Valladon responded. He called for City Maintenance to come out and they opened the drain for him. However, it seemed hopeless – there were three long tunnels for the kitten to go into – two over four feet long and another that seemed endless. The kitten was cold, shivering and very scared and kept backing up deeper into one of the holes. After much patience, Valladon was able to grab the kitten and bring her back to the Shelter. She’s now well fed, warm and waiting to go into foster care with Hopalong Animal Rescue.
