Quick action saves kittens from drowning

Brave action by a 2 Degrees salesperson saw seven kittens rescued from certain death.

The salesperson was going door to door in Whangaparaoa when she discovered a man in the process of drowning a litter of kittens.

Four were already dead, but the salesperson intervened in time to save seven kittens.

They are now being cared for by local cat rescue charity Gutter Kitties.

Danielle Howard of Gutter Kitties says the kittens have cat flu, are undernourished and were dehydrated when they were brought in.

She is, however, confident they can make a full recovery and hopes to find them homes.

A 2 Degrees spokesperson says the company is proud to confirm their salesperson’s involvement in the rescue and delighted that the kittens are to be re-homed.

‘Kitten season’ is underway, and Gutter Kitties are at full stretch.
