Two kittens have been rescued after being swept into a water drainage system in Pattaya over the weekend.
Pattaya Firefighters were notified of the trapped kittens in Soi Korpai 11 in Nongprue on Friday, March 12th, 2020, after they were swept into the drain following a surprise thunderstorm at sunset.
They and The Pattaya News arrived at the scene to find the two kittens trapped and partially submerged in water. It took about half an hour to reach the kittens and remove the drainage cover with the assistance of Pattaya City municipal workers.
Firefighters crawled into the drainage system to successfully rescue the two terrified, wet, but healthy kittens.
Ms. Jantra Deeden, a resident with her home near the drain, told The Pattaya News, “It was heavily raining when I heard the sound of kittens meowing. I found the two kittens inside the water drainage clinging to debris amongst the water. I tried to rescue them myself but was unable to open the drain so I called Pattaya City for assistance.”
The kittens were taken to a local veterinarian for a check-up and will then be partnered with local animal adoption services as they are believed to be strays, according to Pattaya City municipal workers.
