Is this kitten rescue a fake?
You’ll see this kitten rescue in the video. I believe that it’s a fake. I think the lady wanted to make a bit of money so she decided to make a kitten rescue video which she could sell to the local news media. Perhaps I am being very cynical but to me it looks like that. I explain why below.
She has an old car from 1995 (a ’95 Monte Carlo) parked next to her home. To me, the car very much looks like it is totally derelict and unused. The dashboard looks messed up and incomplete.
She says that the car was all right (“definitely unexpected, it was good the night before”) and then suddenly it wouldn’t work so she sought the help of friends on Facebook and what appears to be a local garage stepped up to the plate and helped. There is no discussion in the video about how they intended to fix the car and how they then discovered the kitten. If a car doesn’t work mechanics normally try and fix the mechanical and electrical parts of the vehicle and don’t go straight to looking for a kitten stuck behind the dashboard.
We see the garage mechanics ostensibly cutting into the dashboard and then pulling out a kitten. You see the man the left fiddling around with a part of the dashboard trying to pull it off and then his colleague extracts the kitten from behind the dashboard.
It all looks staged to me although I am not 100% certain. In addition, a kitten in that position would not stop the car working. Further, I don’t see how a kitten could get into that position behind the dashboard but that’s a minor issue because the other thoughts about this, I think, are pretty conclusive. What do you think?
If it is a fake and has been set up then it wouldn’t surprise me. This sort of thing happens all the time. The lady in question does not seem to have a lot of money. Whatever, if it is a fake then it has worked out very nicely. I presume that she was paid a little bit of money for the use of a video.
My thanks to Dee for telling me about this video. Incidentally, Dee Dee thinks it’s a fake.
