Kitten Rescue

By weeziepops - 14 December 2010 38

At the risk of opening up the debate about whether cats are good or evil, I would like to thank the ACT firies who came out and got a puny little kitten out of the drain.  I was at a loss as to who to call on when I heard the kitten crying, so was delighted when they turned up to help me (especially as it meant I didn’t have to pop into the drains in my suede stilettos). 

The whole situation could have been prevented, however, if TAMS would come and trap the feral cats who haunt the Woden storm water drains.  As long as we have feral or stray cats which are not desexed roaming around, we will continue to see litters of unwanted kittens like the little one the firemen saved today.

What’s Your opinion?

Cats are evil, but kittens are not. Nice story. Did you call the firies… how did they know about the kitten?

Actually, the ones to blame for feral cats are the people of Asia that visited a few hundred years before us whities invaded.

We may have assisted with populating the east and south coast of Australia, but they were well entrenched up north and in central Oz long before the Dutch or English got here.

And apparently they taste GREAT!

Could you confirm he was actually stuck – or whether he was just bleating in the way kittens do?

Do you have a source for this interesting statement?

He was definitely stuck as the mother cat had moved the other kittens and this one seems to have been on the wrong side of a pool of water. We rang the firies, they didn’t just know…

Sorry, to be clear – we rang but honestly didn’t expect them to come. The suede stilettos were genuinely at risk.

Well that quote didn’t work too well!

Lets try it the old fashioned way:

thewindycity said: “Do you have a source for this interesting statement?”

punchline: Sate?

Blame the Government – typical – take out one family of kitties and other family will move in. The Rangers are pushed to the limits already!! How about desexing of cats by irresponsible owners…..

Can I call the ACT Firies to ‘rescue’ the feral cat that has moved into my front yard?
It is wild as, cant catch it but has a bell and collar on it ??? Dumped?
RSPCA dont answer the phone. TAMS have a cat trap but charge $50 refundable deposit but we have to do the catching…then take the cat to the RSPCA as TAMS dont take cats.
I think the Firies option sounds way easier.
But how will i get the cat into a drain?

A little from column A, a little from column B.

Yes, but it’s such a controversial issue that you will only find speculation carved into the stone of the internet.

ABC ran a few programs on it years back, I can’t remember if it was Catalyst or not.

Lots of academics will also agree, it seems that pussies have been here for ages.
