Kittens trapped in restaurant ventilation duct cried for days

The before and after picture of one of these rescued kittens is remarkable and pleasing.

A litter of kittens, gingers and one grey tabby, were trapped in the ventilation ducting of a restaurant in India. They cried for two days and then the restaurant owner called Animal Aid Unlimited, a rescue organisation. The mother was no where to be seen. She may have been killed.

The kittens were released from the ducting by cutting a hole in it. The first kitten to be rescued was the grey tabby but he did not look like a grey tabby. He looked like a greasy black cat. He was shockingly filthy poor fella. That duct must have been full of stale cooking grease. He looked as though he might not make it. His litter mates, the gingers, appeared to be in better health but two were badly hypothermic apparently.

They have been nicely cleaned up, medicated and loved. I love the sight of them playing. I love more the sight of the little grey tabby boy who has his coat back. He looks normal at last and in good spirits.

    Awful situation but glad they were rescued. The grey tabby appears to be polydactyl.

      Yes, right on both counts. I really like to see animal welfare in countries in Asia where the status of the cat is arguably not as elevated.
