A kitten now has a forever home after it was rescued from a hole, Thursday night.
Around 6 p.m. Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of an animal in distress near the 8900 block of Gallaghers Circle.
Cst. Kris Clark says witnesses told police a cat could be heard crying for the past two days, but it was unclear where the noise was coming from.
"Cst. Sheldon Herman attended and after some considerable searching, purportedly using skills he acquired from watching Ace Ventura movies, located a small grey kitten trapped about 12 feet down a pipe at the back of a nearby property."
Herman was unable to rescue the kitten by himself, so he called on his friends at the Kelowna Fire Department and crews were able to fashion a device that could pull the furry feline to safety. The animal did not appear to be injured, but was taken to a local veterinarian for any necessary medical treatment. The kitty is expected to make a full recovery.
It appears that even if the owner cannot be determined, the kitten will be going to a good home as Herman wants to adopt him as a pet.
"As we endured this event together, I thought it would only be appropriate to adopt him," says pet detective Herman.
