They realized the cries were coming from beneath the ground.
Have you ever been walking along, minding your own business, when you hear a strange sound that catches you off guard? You look around to see where the noise is coming from, but its source is nowhere to be seen.
That’s what happened to some visitors to the Cultural Centre in Araras, Brazil. They were touring the grounds when they heard what sounded like muffled meowing, but they couldn’t figure out where the noises were coming from.
They searched high and low, and eventually realized the cries were coming from beneath the ground. A kitten was trapped under the floor!
Even though some people said the kitten should just be ignored and left to die, a group of local people banded together, determined not to let that happen. They brought in a worker from a local utility company who carefully drilled through the tile with a jackhammer and pulled away the debris, trying to find the kitten.
It took some time, but finally, after drilling through a pipe, he was able to reach the tiny black, brown, and white kitten.
But as he lifted the kitten to safety, he heard more cries coming from below ground and realized this kitten had siblings!
He continued to dig and eventually four tiny kittens were lifted to safety!
They discovered that the kittens had been born on the roof of the building but had fallen into a gutter pipe and gotten stuck. Had it not been for the compassion of these kind-hearted rescuers, the kittens would have died, trapped beneath the floor of the cultural center.
Since their rescue, the people of Araras have come together to care for the tiny kittens.
“Since we announced the rescue of the kittens on social media, people in the area have donated milk, bottles, medicine and pet products,” said rescuer Ricardo Urbach.
The kittens will be rehabilitated and, once they are old enough, put up for adoption.
