Weld Animal Control Officers save cat, litter of kittens from drain
The Weld County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control Unit saved last week a cat and her litter of kittens from a drain at the agency’s southeast substation in Fort Lupton.
Animal Control Officer Caitlin Perun responded last Monday to the southeast substation after a local resident heard the kittens meowing from under a long piece of steel covering the drain. Fort Lupton Animal Control Officer Terrie Asay assisted with the call.
Perun and Asay were able to rescue all the kittens, but the mother was too scared to move. Asay contacted the Fort Lupton Fire Department and two firefighters responded to help remove the large piece of steel covering the drain. With their help, the team of multi-agency first responders were able to reach and safely remove the mother cat.
Two Good Samaritans also helped, including one who kept watch over the kittens while the first responders worked to rescue the mother cat. The second assisted with the mother cat’s rescue.
In total, six healthy, 4-week-old kittens and their mother were rescued from the drain. Perun transported the whole family to the Humane Society of Weld County where they were dewormed and vaccinated. They will soon be placed into a foster home.
Once the kittens reach 8 weeks, they will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and made available for adoption.
