“I bent down, and through a cut in the seal, I could see a tiny face,” he added. “I told my boss a kitten was in the tank car and we needed to put the car in the shop so we could get it out. He said no, to leave the cat where it was because it would climb out on its own, and for me to get back to work.”
Chris couldn’t see how such a tiny kitten would be able to climb out all her own? After all, that’s why she was crying for help in the first place! How long had she been trapped there without food or water?
With Animal Control now closed there was no one available to help the little feline. Chris made the kitten a promise. If she was still trapped and still crying for help by the time he finished his shift, he would come back for her.
Chris kept his promise too. After his shift was over he went back, there she was still trapped, still, crying for help. So he ran back to the workshop and got a pair of garbage tongs.
