A TWO-week old kitten has been rescued after becoming stuck inside the wall of a house’s garage.

The RSPCA says a semi-feral cat and her kittens had been living in the loft space of the garage at a property on Common Lane in Culcheth.

But one of the young felines fell through a gap and became trapped in a cavity wall.

Animal collection officer Lauren Bradshaw was tasked with saving the kitten after the homeowner was alerted by its crying on Tuesday, June 2.

The cat was ‘dusty, hungry and thirsty’ but uninjured after the successful rescue.

Warrington Guardian:

She said: “The caller had made a hole in the ceiling to try and access the kitten but was unable to reach him, so we decided to try and get access via the roof instead.

“We removed a couple of roof tiles, which meant I had a clear view of the little kitten and could just about reach him and pull him to safety.

Warrington Guardian:

“He was a little dusty, hungry and thirsty but otherwise unharmed and doing okay – we reunited him with his three other siblings who were living in the garage right away but as they are only a couple of weeks old, we really needed to reunite the litter with their mum who was nowhere to be seen.”

This meant that Lauren set a trap for the mum in the garden of the house, with the kittens being taken to the RSPCA’s Wirral branch to be hand reared in the meantime.

She added: “Time was against us.

“We were worried her milk would start drying up if we didn’t catch the mum soon but thankfully, just hours later, I received a call that the mum had gone into the trap – so I dashed over there and took her straight to her kittens.

“They were all pretty happy to be back together.”

Warrington Guardian:

The cat and her kittens are ‘doing well’ after their reunion.
