Firefighters Rescue Kittens in Dramatic Fashion

When two kittens got stuck in the awning of an old theater in Clovis, New Mexico, the situation could have easily gone from bad to worse in a matter of moments. But thanks to the kindness and swift actions of the City of Clovis Fire Department, the two rescue kittens now have a second chance at life!

Cindy’s Hope for Precious Paws in Clovis, New Mexico received the call about the two 8-week-old orange felines stuck in the storm drain of the old theater out on the main street of the town. When they arrived on the scene, Clovis resident Sarah Catherine Elswick and her friends were on-hand as well as firefighter Dustin Caroland and the rest of the Clovis Fire Department, who were able to safely reach the precious felines, saving them  from drowning in the standing water. It’s a good thing too – one of the cats had an injured paw!

Elswick filmed the firefighters as they rescued the duo, subsequently putting the video on Facebook for friends to see. She got a firsthand account of the whole situation, including just how bad it was and could have possibly been had the cats not been rescued.

“They were in six inches of water and mamma was definitely not coming back and they were just going to starve or they were going to get hypothermia overnight,” Elswick explained.

Currently, the two cats – named Taz and Bugs – are doing well in the care of Cindy’s Hope for Precious Paws foster care. They are currently recovering and are waiting to find the perfect forever home. More than 25 people have already expressed interest in adopting the two rescue kittens.
