Hungry kitten trapped in roof

Hungry kitten trapped in roof

RSPCA Inspectors Amanda Swift and Nat Foster received the call regarding a small stray kitten stuck in a roof cavity for three days crying for help.

The occupants of the home tried without success to get the kitten out, but removed some plasterboard to at least locate and animal, which the inspectors could then free.

The female kitten, who has been named Scruffy, is about 4-5 weeks old and was checked by RSPCA vets before going into foster care. It is hoped a proper home and owners will be found for Scruffy.

When not rescuing kittens, RSPCA staff are preparing for the Million Paws Walk at Sir James Mitchell Park on the South Perth foreshore.

The event is on Sunday, May 19, at 8.30am with the walk beginning at 10am. There will be a host of celebrities plus dog washes, free vet checks and family activities. For more information visit www.million pawswalk.com.au.
