A CONTRACTOR IS TRYING TO RESCUE A KITTEN TRAPPED IN A SEALED ATTIC, IN THE PROCESS, SOMETHING HAPPENS TO HIM THAT HE DID NOT EXPECT.
Shuswap Paws Rescue and its team leader Barb Gosselin were working on a TNR (trap-neuter-return) program in British Colombia, Canada when they heard pitiful meowing coming from a nearby roof?
A kitten was trapped in the attic of a nearby house, with no entrance or exit. How the tiny creature got up there is anybody’s guess?
Temperatures were high, so it must have been way too hot inside the attic close to the roof. A volunteer trapper had called saying she had heard the crying but couldn’t get the kitten out. Barb and her team were determined to succeed.
A video was played of a cat Mom calling out to her babies to try and help locate the exact spot this little ball of fluff was. He consistently cried when he heard the video, which was helpful.
Unfortunately, he was in a part of the houses attic that had no access.
A contractor who was working on the home, Garlin, offered to give Barb and the team some assistance.
He had earlier helped a trapped kitten just four days prior, and taken it to the vet for assessment and given it a home.
When he found out another kitten needed some help he did all he good to find a way to get it out. He made a hole in part of the ceiling so he could reach the poor baby but the kitten ran to the opposite side of the attic. Not at all like this kitten who gave his rescuer a very special look when he was rescued.

He and another rescuer, Kelsey, went on the roof and made a hole near the air vent to help get a visual – they saw a tiny tuxedo with white mittens cowering inside.
The kitten heard noises coming from their side so ran to the opposite end where Barb was.
When the kitty was within reach, Barb and another rescuer gently pulled him towards them with two nets.
The tuxedo boy was a bit scared after the ordeal but finally calmed down when they cuddled him in their arms.
Garlin came down from the roof to meet the kitty. He instantly fell in love.
“He was excited to see the little guy and asked to adopt him so his sibling would have a forever friend,” Barb told Love Meow.
Garlin learned a lot about TNR rescue over the past few days and gave two little kitties he helped save, a forever home.
