Poughkeepsie kitten rescued by plumber after resident was told animal control only responds to dog calls — 5 Comments

  1. No one on this platform doesn’t know about my hatred for animal control. I have confirmed evidence that their sole mission is to capture and destroy. There is a definite preference for canines however.

    I so applaud Erik, the plumber. Another hero.

    I called a handyman one time to retrieve a 5 week old kitten from under my freezer after my calls to animal control, law enforcement, and fire services failed. I was afraid to try moving the freezer for fear of crushing her.
    He arrived within 30 minutes, tilted it, grabbed her and kissed her, handed her to me, and set the freezer back in place. My cost was $10.

    • I called a roofing company back in the 1990’s to retrieve a cat who had been 20 feet up a tree day and night for 4 days. They came right out, got the cat down with a ladder and refused payment. I forced them to take $10 for their trouble.

      • Lessons learned. Call the blue collared workers when in desperate need for a cat. They will be the real “first responders”.

  2. Animal control is not any better here (Ventura county California). Rude, callous and unprofessional at best, especially concerning cats. They care mostly about pit bull type dogs, which are on average 80% of what they deal with. I don’t know where they get their attitude or people from but it’s been a plague all across our country.
